Growing up the Mr Men books were amongst our favourites. In fact, my brothers and sisters and I still enjoyed reading them and watching them even once we were really past that picture book stage. We loved the characters, the way they were drawn and the lovely stories. They are real classics. H enjoyed reading them too and even though he is now past that picture book stage too, we still have a few of the books kicking around and we still like to get them out to read.
Some Mr Men (or Little Miss) goodies seemed like perfect presents for fans either young or old, so we were keen to try out the Official Mr Men and Little Miss Shop, when they contacted us recently. They have a great range of merchandise available, much of it personalised which adds to the fun and makes a gift extra special.
One of my favourites is this print of a Transport For London featuring Mr Strong. You can buy this either as an unframed print or as a framed picture, which would make a lovely gift.
I’m loving the Christmas range too. What could be more Christmassy than a Little Miss Christmas stocking? Plus you can get it personalised, so it’s a really individual gift. There are Mr Men ones too, so you could get one for all the children as there’s quite a range of designs and they could pick out their favourite character.
Perfect for stocking fillers or for those awkward Secret Santa presents are these Mr Men or Little Miss personalised magnets. Pick out the most suitable one for the personality of the person you are buying for (be kind) and get one made up for them. They’d look great on a fridge I think, but the children will struggle to keep their hands off them.
