The phased Oddbods range roll out will be kicked off with the launch of Pogo and Fuse plush from Posh Paws. This will be followed by kids’ pyjamas from Misirli, featuring all the Oddbods characters and Pogo and Fuse dress-up costumes from Rubies by October. One Animation will support the partnership with a social media and influencer campaign.

It draws inspiration from the outdoors, combining natural, earthy tones with utility-themed garments featuring the characters. Items include t-shirts, hoodies, a military style jacket, as well as accessories.
