For Partners

Seeking Strategic Partnerships

Rhynotz is seeking brand representation, licensing, and strategic global partnerships for the character-building children's series. The multimedia Rhynotz series is family friendly entertainment targeted to children ages 6-12.

The series focuses on a pack of uniquely stylized, teenage rhinos who live to build and race the fastest rat-rod racing vehicles in a secret world known as "Koala Kanyon." Rhynotz combines fast-paced storylines, music, and imagery with character-building educational elements in each story.

Character education reaches more than 7 million youths per year through 5,000 schools nationwide. Thirty-six states currently have laws that specifically mandate and/or encourage character education programs. (source:

The Rhynotz stories place the characters in situations where they learn about acting with integrity, making positive and healthy lifestyle choices, and practicing problem-solving. The characters are fun, interesting, and relatable to kids who enjoy the stories and learn important lessons along the way.

One of the most popular sports in America for decades, auto racing saw a surge in popularity in the early 2000's that continues today. Since the late 1990's, the market appeal of motorsports and auto-hobby related entertainment and media has spawned dozens of television shows, dedicated networks, movies, books, magazines, social media pages and channels, and merchandise.

Motorsports fans and auto-mechanical hobby enthusiasts are people who love to share their knowledge of mechanics, racing, and all things auto-related. At car shows, races, or conventions it's common to hear "bench racing" or shop talk. "Gearheads," as we're often called, love passing down their knowledge to keep the love of racing alive in future generations.

Rhynotz spans the generational gap, providing the older generations a touchstone to the youths in their lives. And while motorsports has traditionally been a male-oriented field, a progressive women's movement is on the rise in all forms of racing as well as the auto-mechanical hobby. Current and former popular racers include NASCAR's Danica Patrick, IMSA's Christina Nielsen, IRL's Sarah Fisher and Pippa Mann, NHRA's Force sisters (Ashley, Brittany, and Courtney), Leah Pritchett, Erica Enders-Stevens, Alexis DeJoria, Shirley Muldowney, and many others. Rhynotz children's series is for boys and girls and features female characters such as "Kandi Karbi."
