Two new Mr. Men Little Miss characters to arrive in autumn 2024

Farshore and Sanrio are to welcome two new characters to the universe of Mr. Men Little Miss later this year.

Mr. Fib and Little Miss Surprise will join the classic range on 12 September 2024, over 50 years after Mr. Tickle, the very first Mr. Men book, was published.

“It’s always fun creating new characters to add to the series, although I’ve got a way to go to catch up with my dad,” commented author Adam Hargreaves. “A Mr Fib has been rattling around in my imagination for a long while and Little Miss Surprise, of course, popped into my head right out of the blue.”

Silvia Figini, coo at Sanrio – EMEA, India and Oceania, and Mr. Men – Worldwide, continued: “We are thrilled to introduce two new characters to the Mr. Men Little Miss family, marking the first additions since our 50th anniversary. By highlighting distinct personality traits, these characters help both adults and children connect with them and reflect on their own emotions. We are confident that you will instantly adore them.”

Emily Campan, publisher at Farshore, added: ‘We are so delighted to be welcoming two new additions to the Mr. Men Little Miss line up in 2024. We really wanted our two new characters to reflect the world and personality traits children might encounter in real life, and I think our two new friends meet that brief completely. I can’t wait for the rest of the world to meet them.”

Mr. Fib is the smartest, strongest and funniest Mr. Men of all. Well, so he says. Mr. Fib fibs to impress people, but his fibs are getting bigger and bigger, and one day he goes too far and his friends are upset. Can he learn to tell the truth?

Meanwhile, Little Miss Surprise loves nothing better than surprises, and never knows what each day may bring. Life certainly isn’t predicable when Little Miss Surprise is around. But is Mr. Quiet ready for one of her surprising days out?
