PBS recently launched the first-ever PBS KIDS toy line of preschool toys designed to extend off-screen learning. This move into the toy aisle furthers PBS’ transmedia mission, reaching children across all platforms – on-air, online, on mobile devices in classrooms, and through creative play.  The toys are exclusively available online at a newly launched PBS KIDS Shop, PBSKIDSshop.com, until early fall, when they will become available at additional online and in-store retailers as well.
