Fake Peppa Pig products

Chinese police crackdown on fake Peppa Pig products

They seized toothbrushes, shampoo and other children's products bearing the image of the cartoon character.

The raids came in response to complaints by the local agent of British company Entertainment One, which holds the trademark.

The British cartoon character is increasingly popular in China.

The Chinese agent for Entertainment One had spotted the counterfeit products offered on major e-commerce websites and subsequently informed the police.
