“CafePress has become the go-to resource for partners seeking unparalleled fan engagement and expansive product selection," said Ty Simpson, Vice President of Business Development for CafePress. “CafePress is where people can go to find interesting products branded with what they love most – and preschool kids clearly love Justin Time! Both its popularity on TV, and it’s bright, graphic design, make Justin Time a great choice for CafePress.”
The store will also be available via Shop Sprout online. Justin Time is one of the top-performing preschool shows on Sprout in the US, and also airs in over 75 countries worldwide.
In Turkey, Kaynak Licensing has joined Justin Time’s global network of agents in key markets which includes Super RTL in Germany and Knockout Licensing in the US and Canada.

Mary Bredin, Vice President Guru Studio, added: “It has always been our goal to create a truly global brand that not only entertains kids while watching TV – but maintains that interest beyond the screen. Café Press and Kaynak’s confidence in JUSTIN TIME’s licensing potential is testimony that both those goals are being achieved.”
