When it comes to dressing up, more and more people are opting for licensed costumes. Whether Star Wars, Marvel or Disney - the major licenses are only available in Germany from Rubies.
Klas Bömecke: Here we are surrounded by celebrities! Hulk, Yoda, all familiar faces. Manuela Pfeifer: They are all strong personalities. All from Disney, to which Marvel and Star Wars have also belonged for some years now. This brings us to the absolutely unique selling point that sets Rubies Germany apart. We are the only ones in Germany to sell licensed costumes with a Hollywood background. There are national licenses that we have at the start. The international ones are our absolute flagship.
Klas Bömecke: Star Wars is definitely a great business because all the kids are totally into Star Wars. Manuela Pfeifer: Absolutely. Star Wars is still the license in the costume sector in Germany. But the Avengers from Marvel have also become very strong in recent years and not to forget Warner Bros, we have the dainty little Batman standing next to us. Batman and Superman are, of course, indispensable. Justice League was the new movie from Warner Bros. and they are also very important. Klas Bömecke: This logo is familiar by now. There was a movie a few years ago - The Incredibles.
Manuela Pfeifer: Exactly, The Incredibles, as it's called in Germany. The second film will be released in cinemas at the end of September this year. As in many other areas, we have costumes for the whole family, for the kids, for the adults and for the dogs. Klas Bömecke: I think that's really great! I think you have even more dog costumes! Manuela Pfeifer: Yes, there are some down there.
Klas Bömecke: What is that? Manuela Pfeifer: A Mickey Mouse dog. Here we have the Spider. Klas Bömecke: Funny. And here is Minnie Mouse. Manuela Pfeifer: And we also have Spider. Spiderman. Klas Bömecke: Cool, very nice. But I have cats at home, they wouldn't let me put this on. Manuela Pfeifer: I have a dog, he won't put it on either. He takes it off again immediately.
