Kids Corner: Bluey, Minecraft, and Funko

By Kat La Mantia | August 10 2022 | GeneralChildren'sGifts & GamesPop Culture Prose

Are there important properties missing from your shop’s children section? Today we highlight three of our best selling kids lines you may not have taken notice of yet.

Season 3 of Bluey is streaming now on Disney+! Bluey is one of the most popular current TV shows, with hundreds of thousands of plays each episode. With plenty of sticker books, activity books, and coloring books available, Bluey books are a great option for building out any young kids section. Take a look at our Bluey title list to see everything available.

Minecraft continues to take the world by storm! It’s estimated that 50% of all kids 9-11 years old are currently playing the game, and 35 million students and teachers are licensed to use the Education Edition of Minecraft. The official Minecraft YouTube channel has amassed over 1 trillion (yes, that’s the right illion!) views, and that doesn’t even touch the combined popularity of Minecraft let’s play streamers. There are a ton of Minecraft titles available from PRH, including player guides, prose novels, and activity books. Be sure to check out our Minecraft title list to browse it all, and in the meantime we’ve included some highlights below that sample from each of the biggest Minecraft categories.

And last but not least, Funko Pop Little Golden Books combine two hugely recognizable brands. Kids can grab a Little Golden Book about their favorite show, movie, or crime-fighting turtle gang that matches their irresistibly cute Funko toys, taking the interactivity of these books to a whole new level.

If your kids section could use a little revival, consider some of these fun, eye-catching options!
