Pretend to Bee is to launch its brand new Thunderbirds costume range in October, after signing a two-year licensing deal with ITV Studios.

The costume company, who specialise in high-quality dress up for young children, will launch its Scott Tracy costume initially, followed by Virgil in early 2016.

Each costume is designed with an authentic look and come with accessories to expand the role-play possibilities even further.

“We have expanded our Pretend to Bee range considerably in 2015 with the addition of several new licensed collections and so are delighted to have signed such a hot licensed property,” said Harrison Palmer, sales and marketing director at Global Solutions for Clothing Ltd.

“The success of the new Thunderbirds programme has been phenomenal and we hope our new range will appeal to the legion of new Thunderbirds fans. With a new series already confirmed in 2016, we will continue to add to the range.”
