Jazwares, a leading global toy company, recently announced that it has entered into a multiyear global toy licensing agreement with cutting-edge entertainment company Scottgames, LLC to produce a toy line inspired by the survival horror video game and film franchise, Five Nights at Freddy’s. Building on the immersive settings and characters from the gaming and film franchise, Jazwares’ Five Nights at Freddy’s portfolio will expand on the fictional world like never before through must-have toy products across numerous categories including pet.

Set to launch at mass retail in 2025, Jazwares has secured the licensing rights to manufacture a robust cross-category line of toys and plush inspired by the franchise. The full line will include character figures of varying scales, world-setting playsets, plush, pet toys, one-of-a-kind collector’s items, and more.

“Five Nights at Freddy’s has taken the gaming world by storm, and as master toy licensee, Jazwares has the tremendous opportunity to further connect with fans of the games and immerse them in the series like never before,” said Judd Karofsky, executive vice president of Jazwares. “We’re thrilled to take the world of Five Nights at Freddy’s beyond the screen and into the hands of fans.”

“Five Nights at Freddy’s, which turns 10 in August, has grown into a top media franchise and billion dollar retail brand via the steady introduction of new games, books, and motion pictures. It is a true transmedia franchise that we believe will be immensely benefited with the selection of Jazwares as the Master Toy partner,” said Russell Binder, CEO of Striker Entertainment, the agency of record on behalf of Scottgames. “The stakeholders have bent over backwards to listen to and hear what the fans of the franchise are asking for, and we believe that Jazwares (as fans themselves) will aim high and keep the new and existing fans engaged with high quality plush, action figures, and innovation across categories.”
