SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--JAKKS Pacific, Inc. (NASDAQ: JAKK) and Disguise, Inc. were announced today as the North American seasonal toy and official costume partner for Moonbug Entertainment’s CoComelon, commencing in 2021. Disguise, the costume division of JAKKS Pacific, will be designing and manufacturing costumes and accessories for characters from CoComelon based on the hit children’s show streaming on Netflix, Roku and Hulu.

CoComelon is consistently in the Top 10 list on Netflix with a huge fan base that spreads across the globe.
