February proved to be a very exciting month for our characters!
As part of Peter Rabbit’s 120th anniversary celebrations, PETER RABBIT™: Explore and Play is now open in Blackpool. A multi-sensory attraction based on the world-famous animated TV series enables visitors to hop into the oversized world of Peter Rabbit and friends. Visitors can adventure through a series of themes zones, take part in challenges, games, and even have the chance to meet Peter Rabbit himself!
Cuthbert the Fox & his puppet pal Tildy the Toadstool are the result of a competition which saw kids asked to create a new face for Scotmid’s charity partnership with Children’s Hospices Across Scotland, better known as CHAS. Cuthbert and Tildy were seen spreading the love at their Uddington store, handing out chocolates and Valentines cards to their lovely customers on Valentine’s Day.
Last month also saw a whole host of characters keep little ones amused throughout the half-term break. Hey Duggee entertained fans with his stick song at West Midlands Safari Park, the Gruffalo took a break from the deep, dark woods and visited Hillington, and Chase greeted visitors at the top of the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth!
