AURORA, IL (June 10, 2014) – Feld Entertainment, Inc.® and The Bridge Direct, Inc. announced today a multi-year global licensing agreement, which was brokered by The Licensing Shop, Inc., to develop and market Monster Jam® Construction Sets. As part of The Bridge Direct’s C3 Construction line, the Monster Jam building sets will let kids “Create, Construct and Customize” a play experience based on the high-energy family fun of Monster Jam stadium and arena-based live events.
Monster Jam, the world’s largest and most popular touring monster truck property, entertains over four million fans across four continents and ten countries with more than 350 action-packed performances each year.

“Monster Jam is the perfect combination of extreme entertainment and full-throttle family fun,” said Jay Foreman, President and CEO of The Bridge Direct. “Monster Jam is already a hugely successful ‘wheels’ toy line, and we are thrilled to bring this dynamic powerhouse brand to the construction category – one of today’s largest and fastest growing sectors in the industry.”
