Hairy Maclary first came to life in 1983 and immediately captured the imagination of parents and children around the world. The contagious rhyming text that begins “Out of the gate and off for a walk went Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy” has established Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy as a true classic and there are now 20 original stories within the Hairy Maclary and Friends series. Over 10 million copies have been sold.
There is already a UK stage show, produced by Nonsense Room and licensed product is doing well in Australia and New Zealand. In the UK, Metrostar will target Hairy Maclary & Friends at the baby market in apparel, soft toys, puzzles, melamine, greetings, homewares and baby gift.
