Here at Pudsey Towers we’re particularly excited by our all new, re-designed 2012 plush Pudsey and Blush bears (pictured). You can now get your hands on these limited edition teddys, with newly spotty bandanas and paws, in both standard and giant sizes. These cuddly, collectables are sure to be snapped up quickly, so you better hurry.
Other new items for 2012 include the rather snazzy ‘tiffany’ style keyring, a foldaway shopper bag that will brighten up any trip to the shops and a retractable pencil set that will make the kids homework miles more fun.
