Giochi Preziosi Brings Bing to French Retail

Toy distributor newly appointed following ratings success for the pre-school series

London, 13th June 2023 – Acamar Films partners with Giochi Preziosi as the master toy distributor for Bing in France. A range of Bing plush and plastic figurines from Acamar Film’s master toy partner, Golden Bear, will be available in French retailers from Spring 2024. 

Bing has been performing strongly in France. The multi-award-winning, animated pre-school series was the most watched pre-school programme in April on national broadcaster France 5. Bing also achieved the highest weekend audience share amongst 4-10 years old with 19.7% in the same month (Mediametrie, April 2023). The first series of Bing (26 episodes) launched on France 5 in January 2023 having initially debuted in France on the Okoo digital platform in November 2022 with distribution across the Okoo brand on MyCanal, Orange, Samsung TV, SFR and Free.  

“We were confident that French families were going to appreciate the quality of Bing along with the way in which the series shares stories that are recognisable and reassuring. That Bing has become the top series so soon is unprecedented and suggests that the show is making a powerful connection with audiences,” said Patricia Adane, Programming Director, France Télévision.

“We care passionately about meeting the needs of our young Bingster audience and work tirelessly on our local-language productions. We want every single child to believe that Bing truly is ‘round the corner, not far away’. For Bing to receive such a tremendous welcome in France is heart-warming and joyful for our entire team. We’re delighted to be working so closely with France Télévision,” said Mikael Shields, CEO, Acamar Films.

Acamar Films with French licensing agent, France tv distribution, are set to support the growth of the property in France with robust marketing and promotional plans that will cover a variety of family touchpoints. 

The success of Bing’s performance across Okoo and France 5 is mirrored by strong viewership on YouTube. Bing’s official French-language YouTube channel ( forms part of Acamar’s growing network of 23 localised Bing channels – a network which collectively generates in excess of 1 million hours of watch time every day.
