​“Emoji has always been at the forefront of creatively expressing one’s emotions through its world class designs and this can be seen across all our emoji consumer products. The USP of the Emoji brand is that it resonates beautifully with consumers, regardless of their age and gender. Even for future partnerships, our aim is to build sustainability & authenticity of the emoji brand with quality products,” said Bhavik Vora, Founder & CEO, Black White Orange Brands.

My Baby Excel, Status Quo, and Safari Bags are few of the licensees for Emoji merchandise. The merchandise line is available at all major retail stores and eCommerce platforms across India. According to Vora, the brand is expecting revenue of approx Rs 25-30 crore through the retail sales of emoji licensed merchandise.

Plush toy mogul My Baby Excel launched a plush collection for the brand, while Safari has come up with a collection of school bags.
