This year the Mr Men and Little Miss books turn 50 years old and to celebrate this milestone anniversary, the general public have been asked to choose the new additions for the very first time. The winners will be turned into the next books.
We’ve all grown up with the books or read them to our children, so the opportunity to help shape the world and choose its next characters is so exciting!
Alastair McHarrie, Sanrio Licensing Director, commented in the press release: “The Mr. Men Little Miss 50th Anniversary in 2021 provides an opportunity to reflect on the role the brand has played for many generations of kids and adults across the world. Our celebrations will lead with two new characters chosen by our fans joining our family of well-loved characters and we can’t wait to see which two get the winning vote.”
There are five new characters to discover and vote for; Mr. Calm with his inner sense of zen, Little Miss Brave with the heart of a lion, Mr. Brilliant and his can-do attitude, Little Miss Energy filled with zest, and Little Miss Kind who always puts others first.
