Comic Relief has released its range of merchandise for this year’s Red Nose Day. With the big event taking place next week (24th March), here’s a look at some of the vast range of items on offer.
As usual, its Red Noses are available in surprise bags from Sainsbury’s, Oxfam, and rednoseday.com for £1, with at least 60p from each one going to Comic Relief. This year’s characters include Dr. Nose, Sneezecake, The Snorcerer, Snuffles, DJ Boogie, Norse Nose, Snootankhamun, Sniffer and Nose-it-all, with the ultra-rare silver Frankinose, which unlocks exclusive content in the Comic Adventure digital comic strip at rednoseday.com, voiced by celebrities.
There are also a number of limited edition Red Nose Day official t-shirts, created by photographer Rankin and featuring a selection of quirky British animal portraits including Coco the Cat, Bertie the Bunny and Albert the Bulldog. Prices for these start from £6.99 for children’s sizes with at least £2.50 going to Comic Relief and from £9.99 for adults with at least £5 going to Comic Relief. The t-shirts are being sold in TK Maxx stores, and on tkmaxx.com and rednoseday.com. Kids t-shirts are also being sold in HomeSense stores.
Other merchandise includes a glow in the dark wristband for £1, Deeley Boppers, pin badges, mugs featuring Sniffer the dog or Norse Nose, Sniffer Dog Big Nose soft toy (above), an apron and tea towel, pens, and Specsavers funny glasses (below).
