Beano Merchandise 2016

Beano Studios, the business behind the relaunch of the Beano comic as a global kids’ entertainment network, has launched an awesome new range of products featuring refreshed Beano designs, just in time for Christmas, including a newly-launched Beano Top Trumps game.

The collection, available through the online shop at shop.beano.com (with some items on sale from other retailers), includes t-shirts, hoodies, beanies, stationery packs, games and accessories; perfect presents for the next generation of mischief makers this Christmas, along with the not-so-grown-up adults who love the iconic British brand.

The bold designs are available in three different product groups – Big Heads, Pranks and Classics. The Big Heads contemporary designs are packed with attitude, featuring some of Beano’s most beloved characters; Dennis, Gnasher and Minnie the Minx. The designs feature punchy repeat patterns and bold primary colours.
