Regarding the Ben 10 Hero Truck Tour and the new toy range, Graham Saltmarsh, director of licensing for Cartoon Network Enterprises UK and Northern Europe said:

“We know from our retail partners that immersive fan experiences are in high demand, especially during the summer holidays as parents look for ways to keep their kids entertained. We’re confident these ‘Ben 10’ activations will create a huge sense of excitement as soon as kids arrive at their local store and leave them eager to get their hands on the fantastic new toy range.”
