The collaboration with Piet will be a first for the company which has remained true to the principle of cost effective products that do not compromise on high quality.
Piet De Rycker, has been in the animation industry for the past three decades and has been the brainchild behind award winning animation entertainment features produced by Warner Bros.

In 2012, he established his own puzzle and game division named Takti Puzzles which made its debut at the world renowned Nürnberg Toy Fair to the delight of many. The charming and innocent illustrations that depicted the wonder of childhood and even the vibrancy of nature were immediate attention grabbers as Piet sought to create new designs that appealed to diverse ages.
Commenting on the partnership Charith Atukorala, Director, Panther, said, “At Nürnberg Toy Fair this year we immediately saw the appeal of Piet’s illustrations and we share a common goal of promoting creativity. With the development and launch of ‘Happy Do’s’, we hope to promote happiness in exploring new worlds and ideas. With the motive of connecting cultures all over the world, this exciting alliance expands the horizons of opportunity and imagination.”
