Enesco have a diverse retail distribution throughout the UK and Europe, all serviced by the award-winning customer service department based in Carlisle, Cumbria. In addition, they also offer direct-to-consumer shipping within the UK.

A perfect match between Enesco UK’s top quality delightful and humorous gifts and Jimmy the Bull’s photography, combined with whimsical hand drawn elements, that have captured the world’s attention. The Instagram feed became an immediate worldwide sensation with over 600,000 followers, followed by his book entitled 'A Dog Named Jimmy' featuring a collection of tongue-in-cheek imagery.

Jimmy the Bull assets includes hundreds of charming and cheeky images chronicling the owner and dog’s relationship. When Rafael Mantesso’s­­ wife left him, she took everything except their beloved bull terrier, whom she’d named after her favorite shoe designer: Jimmy Choo. With only Jimmy for company, Rafael found inspiration in his best friend, blank walls and a magic marker. Heart-warming and hilarious, Jimmy the Bull continues to delight animal lovers everywhere.

Enesco products in development include giftware, resin figurines, wall art and more. The range will be launched at Spring Fair, Birmingham NEC, February 2019.

In addition to Enesco UK, Jimmy the Bull’s licensing program will be announcing more licensed partners in 2018 in many other categories. Late in 2017 we saw the first gift collaboration with Groovy UK Ltd who are also readying themselves for a Spring Fair launch.

'Enesco UK is a dream partner for us and Jimmy the Bull. We are very much looking forward to seeing the products come to life. Concepts are amazing! Enesco are a reference within the licensing industry, as well as in the gift industry, we look forward to a successful collection with Enesco,' says Maria Strid, Art Ask Agency.
