Selfridges take you back to your childhood as they launch the world’s first Mr. Men and Little Miss Personalised Art Print Pop Up.
From this week (22nd February) you can go all old school at Selfridges as they are giving you the exclusive opportunity to purchase a personalised print of your favourite Mr. Men and Little Miss character.
There’s a list of 25 Mr. Men & Little Miss characters to choose from including Mr.Cool, Little Miss Sunshine, Mr. Lazy, Little Miss Naughty.
Richard Jones, Selfridges buying manager says:
“This is truly an amazing opportunity to take an iconic character we all grew up with and love, and personalise for yourself or as a great gift.”
Once you’ve selected your character you can choose the size print that you want – classic, large & huge, framed or unframed – and collect in store after just 20 minutes.
Mr. Men arrived in 1971 when Adam Hargreaves, the son of creator Roger Hargreaves, asked his dad: “What does a ‘tickle’ look like?” Roger Hargreaves drew Mr. Tickle and the rest is history. The Mr. Men and Little Miss have been delighting all ages for over 40 years. For fans young and old or collectors this is a gift that will certainly be very special as the iconic brand has been adored by millions worldwide.
Art You Grew Up With Ltd, the fine art publisher to the Nation’s favourite characters has curated the range and has collaborated with Sanrio, owner of The Mr. Men and Little Miss and Hello Kitty brands.
Using the original artwork archived at the studio, the characters we’ve all grown up with have been faithfully recreated as fine art prints, but with a personalised twist.
Russell Singler, CEO of Art You Grew Up With explains:
“Art You Grew Up With are so excited to launch a Personalised Art Print Pop Up within Selfridges, the first of its kind! I have loved the Mr. Men ever since I was a small child and my kids have grown up with them too. They are a wonderful part of this country’s heritage, adored by millions around the world. Personalising the Mr. Men is a dream come true!”
