May was packed with joy and excitements!

At the beginning of the month, Midco Toy Planet has invited Blue from Blue’s Clues, CoComelon’s JJ and Pokemon’s Pikachu as special guests to their shop opening in Derby, while hero pups Chase & Marshall visited Epping Ongar Railway at North Weald station, bringing the passengers a memorable family day out.

Who doesn’t like to have some fun? The Cat in the Hat spent an amazing sunny afternoon with the students at Thomas Willingale School & Nursery while they listened to tales of his adventures.

Elmer’s day on 28th May was the most colourful day of the year! In line with this year’s themes of inclusivity and friendship, and in honour of late author and illustrator David McKee, the Patchwork Elephant Elmer paid a visit to Waterstones Kensington and Waterstones Altrungham, to inspire his fans to embrace what makes them different and unique.

Looking forward to June, our characters are getting ready to take part in Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Let’s take a look at the exciting events we have coming up next month!
