Cartamundi’s Catch of the Day

Eagerly anticipated children’s film inspires three new launches from card game company

You might have to wait until 19 July for the hugely anticipated Finding Dory to swim into UK cinemas, but Cartamundi’s latest launches are sure to ease the pain.

The renowned playing cards and card games company has just announced three new launches inspired by the Disney Pixar sequel to Finding Nemo, in which everyone’s favourite forgetful blue tang Dory is reunited with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. 

Available in May will be a Snap game, a two-in-one game and a game box. The two in one game and the game box both include a Pairs and a Donkey game. The game box also includes a colourful and engaging Finding Dory puzzle. The packaging and the cards for all three products are illustrated with delightful pictures of Dory and many other characters from the new film. And the game box offers a very appropriate extra — the cards are waterproof! 

That’s right: if kids (and adults) want to play their Finding Dory games in the paddling pool or at the beach, they can.

Aimed at players aged three and above, the games come with easy-to-understand instructions. The game box retails at £7.49, while the two-in-one game and the Snap game both retail at £2.99. 

All three games were previewed to a strong response on the Cartamundi stand (H1) at London’s Toy Fair in January.

The Disney/Pixar Finding Dory game box, two-in-one game and Snap deck will be available for delivery to toyshops, gift shops and supermarkets from late spring. Cartamundi is also planning a promotional Finding Dory competition to coincide with the film’s release, offering cinema tickets for the whole family, as well as a set of Cartamundi Finding Dory card games.

Directed by Andrew Stanton and produced by Lindsey Collins, Finding Dory features the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton. 

Trudi Bishop, Head of Marketing and Licensing, Cartamundi, says: “Our Finding Dory card games boasts superb designs, charm, humour and colour. We are certain they will be a hit with fans and families everywhere - including in the water!”
