“Making children smart and happy around the world.“
That’s the mission of Ballon Media, one of Europe’s most innovating children’s book publishers.
With offices in Antwerp, Paris and Beijing, Ballon Media has been present on the international markets for decades. Our books, translated into 72 languages are sold worldwide in more than 100 countries. You can find us at leading international book fairs in Guadalajara, New York, Paris, Beijing, Bologna or Frankfurt.
For the past 30 years we’ve grown to become a worldwide mass market publisher with a strong focus on books for babies and preschool ages. Our catalogue covers books for the age of 0 to 9 years:
- colouring and stickering books with activity, games or educational content
- bath, cloth and board books
- books with gadgets, Easter and Christmas collections
- books with augmented reality
FIRST STEPS is our number one board collection, probably the most successful toddler series in the world, sold in 72 languages.
Recently we acquired the worldwide broadcasting, publishing and merchandising rights for HOPLA, the cute little rabbit. This 3D-animated non-spoken series in primary colours is broadcasted in many countries.
Ballon Media is also the proud owner of the incredibly popular JOMMEKE comic series, a hero to many children (6 to 12 years). This highly adventurous youngster is set on a non-violent, non-digital journey with a lot of humour and the help of his friends and some funny animals. With a yearly sales of 1 million copies (only in Dutch language!), already 276 albums have been published.
This 2015 catalogue contains both our brand new collections as well as backlist bestselling series.
We would be happy to send you any pdf, finished copy or dummy of books you may be interested in.
Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.
Always happy to help you!
