Our consistently positive customer reviews highlight the love parents and their children have for our toys and brand. A grandmother called Tricia left this 5-star review recently:
“An adorable little Stuffy. I call my grandson Bean so finding this cute little Green Bean for him with the great stories to go with him was wonderful!”
Starting out with a series of collectable books featuring our IP character Green Bean and several unique friends, we have diversified our portfolio with a range of ECO toys, games, live events and attractions, music, and our latest endeavour – our children’s preschool animated TV series to meet customers’ desires for fun, wholesome, and eco-conscious children’s entertainment.
In 2023, our Green Bean Soft Toy was our best seller and remains to be our all-time top-selling toy. Building on the success of our IP plush toy, we have some exciting new product releases coming in 2024 to showcase our lovable characters with toys that inspire children to engage in imaginative play and develop key skills.
As the financial year draws to a close, it’s a good time to reflect on the current climate of the children’s entertainment industry and what trends and development have occurred in the industry.
Toy World Magazine has reported that toy company Spin Master has published their full year and Q4 revenue reports. The stats show that their Toy and Entertainment sectors benefited from a Q4 turnaround driven by impressive performances from Bitzee, Gabby’s Dollhouse, Monster Jam, and Unicorn Academy.
Having an IP entertainment brand with multi-revenue opportunities may be the key to maintaining business growth in the children’s entertainment sector. At Green Bean Studios, we understand the importance of this, with each branch of our brand supporting and driving business growth.

We are thrilled to have won several awards over the years of our business growth journey.
Building a business from the ground up is no small task. Green Bean Studios founder Anita Frost recently spoke as a guest on The Elegance of Souls (TEOS) podcast, sharing her background and insights into leadership and wellbeing as a Black female entrepreneur.
Founded by Ekanem Kofi Ikpeme, TEOS aims to engage and transform minds creatively one conversation, one story, one journey at a time. As a podcaster Ekanem seeks to give encouragement, insight and empowerment from her own challenges and through community and faith.
The podcast is part of a new series called Pacesetters, which explores how business leaders can set the right pace for sustainable leadership, to flourish not just in their professional lives but in their personal lives and overall wellbeing.
The show invites guests to delve into questions such as ‘who are we becoming in achieving our goals?’, and ‘how have we grown as we learn about pace?’ to gain perspectives on how self-care and stress management can lead entrepreneurs to a true and healthy version of themselves.
On the show, Anita discussed some of the challenges she faces in the business world as a Black female founder. Despite this adversity, she talks about how Green Bean Studios has innovated and adapted to grow to a thriving children’s IP entertainment brand valued at £140 million.
Anita also spoke about how Green Bean Studios is tackling key societal issues affecting our children including overuse of technology, mental health issues, and childhood obesity.
With Green Bean Studios' significant growth last year which has pushed the brand to take its first steps into animated TV productions, Anita shared her insights into the current climate for children’s IP entertainment and how she has led her team of talented professionals to first-stage developments of a children’s animated TV series based on her award-winning series of books, toys and collectables.
