Also in 2019, the company wants to set licensing partnerships - including "Heidi"

I´m looking forward to "Heidi in Tirol" ...  ;D

Are they trying to market to adults? At most, my niece may have heard of Heidi.

At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

Is there some kind of cartoon about Heidi that I'm not aware of? Because the last movie I saw about Heidi had Shirley Temple in it. I think it will be a nice theme though.

In the past it was owned by a German company, but since a couple of years  the Belgian entertainment group Studio 100 took it over. It resulted in new animated series: https://studio100.com/be/nl/heidi

It does seem random, but I guess the Ghostbusters theme must have sold well? The sets are starting to pop up quite a lot on the second hand market too, much would imply they were being sold to (or bought for) children too.

There's a pretty decent market for adult collectible stuff - Funko Pops for example fly off the shelves. I'm betting PM got a taste of that adult dollar with Ghostbusters so are trying more of this stuff. That it sells to children as well is a bonus.

There is a market for adult collectibles, but it is interesting that they are going back that far. Skipping millennials and going straight for the boomer/gen-x crowd.
