The Mr Men and Little Miss series of children’s books are some of the most iconic in the world – and now they have a brand new addition, Little Miss Hug!
Does your little one love hugs and cuddles? If so, they'll love the new Little Miss character, the cheeky, pink Little Miss Hug – renowned for her expert hugs. Launching today, the latest character will star in the 35th edition of the popular Little Miss series, published by Egmont UK.
The cheery character with a red bow in her hair will no doubt be popular with her Mr Men and Little Miss friends – everyone needs a good hug!
Sandrine de Raspide, senior vice president, Sanrio, said: ‘The Mr. Men and Little Misses have been delighting children for generations with their charming and funny antics.
‘Little Miss Hug is the first character created since they joined the Sanrio universe…she will be bringing hugs and friendship through a classic book and an expanded licensed program that will lead us all on a warm and happy journey.’
Creator Adam Hargreaves added: ‘I really enjoyed creating Little Miss Hug; she brings an important and fun character trait with her to the family of Mr Men and Little Miss and I think she’s going to fit right in.’
There’s another treat in store for little ones - for the first time ever, to coincide with the launch of Little Miss hug, an AR app will be available for free download from Android and IOS from today, May 8th.
The app will bring Little Miss Hug to life in 3D form and what’s more, the app will allow users to take pictures of themselves hugging Little Miss Hug! The app will also feature a fun video story and exciting interactive game.
Little Miss Hug is the first new Little Miss since 2011 when Little Miss Princess was introduced into the family of characters. The book launches today and costs £2.99 from all good book retailers, amazon.co.uk and egmont.co.uk.
