Speaking on the acquisition, Sandeep Dahiya, Vice President, Consumer Products - Viacom18 Media Pvt. Ltd., "'Ninja Hattori' has been the frontrunner (in both popularity and appeal) in the kids entertainment category and therefore it's only natural that we extend his presence beyond television."

Nick is already present across the country with products developed around some of its most popular characters - 'SpongeBob SquarePants' and 'Dora the Explorer' in categories including apparel, back to school range, tableware products, stationery, puzzles, games, story books, bed-linen, gifts & novelties and toys amongst others.
