Mr Tumble Learning Pad to hit retail

Trends UK and BBC Worldwide have just announced that a new Mr Tumble Learning Pad will hit retail.

Lindsay Hardy, Trends UK Marketing Director said: “We are really excited about working with BBC Worldwide on this well-loved property. The Mr Tumble Learning Pad is an ideal toy for any fan of the programme because it combines recognising colours, letters, numbers, musical instruments with the lovely Mr Tumble and his friends. It’s a truly interactive and fun learning toy.”


Julie Kekwick, Senior Licensing Manager, BBC Worldwide added: “Trends UK are the perfect partner for Mr Tumble, as their wonderful products will perfectly complement the range from Golden Bear.”

Mr Tumble is famed as the star of Something Special with BAFTA winning children’s presenter Justin Fletcher, one of the most well loved and recognised faces on children’s television. This wonderful show has been entertaining pre-schoolers and children with special needs on CBeebies for more than 10 years, regularly appearing in the top three most watched shows on the channel. Using a sign language called Makaton, Justin, along with his friend Mr Tumble, help children learn how to communicate and develop language skills in a fun and exciting way.

Master Toy partners Golden Bear, recently refreshed and re-designed the Something Special offering under the new banner of Mr Tumble Something Special. The brand continues to do well at retail and has increased product lines this year including a TV advertised vehicle and new feature plush. Latest additions to the hugely popular toy collection feature many of the key learning elements brought to life from the much loved CBeebies show.  Sing Along with Mr Tumble and Large Talking Mr Tumble are set to join the award-winning Mr Tumble Fun Sounds Musical Car and Mr Tumble with Fun Tumble Tapp for AW17.

Other product lines include new books from Egmont, lunch and dinnerware from Zak, Aykroyd and TDP for nightwear, underwear and swimwear, daywear with K3Y, Pasta Shapes from Princes Foods, and bedding and towels from Dreamtex.

Fans of Mr Tumble will also love CBeebies Land Hotel opening on 8 July at Alton Towers. Designed for young families to enjoy a short break surrounded by some of their favourite CBeebies characters, this unique hotel will feature beautifully designed Something Special rooms.
