Beano Studios supports Save the Children with Blu Goblin line-up

Beano Studios is celebrating its 85th anniversary with a new initiative to support the Save the Children charity, one of the studio’s longest standing charity partners. The studio has teamed with Blu Goblin, the direct to consumer pop culture platform with purpose developed by Louis Kennedy, to launch a range of exclusive, limited edition Dennis sculptures, as well as a classic Beano character chess set. Both items have been designed exclusively by the Blu Goblin team in partnership with Beano Studios. The hand cast Dennis sculptures come in two versions.- a traditional red and black and a limited edition of only 70 made in a brilliant white and spiky metallic hair. The figurines stand at 31cm tall. Vanessa Andreis, franchise planning and partnerships director, Beano Studios, said: “2023 is set to be a massive year for Beano as we celebrate an incredible 85 years of making kids laugh. Now thanks to this wonderful partnership with Blu Goblin, fans can collect their own little piece of Beano history whilst helping Save the Children change the future for good for children around the world.” Gemma Sherrington, executive director of fundraising and marketing at Save the Children, said: “Everything we do is powered by children and what better way to demonstrate the power of children’s imaginations than to celebrate the original creative prankster – Dennis. We are immensely proud of our partnership with Beano and hope that everyone enjoys these limited-edition products which will raise money to help children get the food, education, and medicine they need to see the wonder in the world again.” Beano was first published in July 1938 and is still created every week in its original Dundee headquarters and printed in the UK. Beano recently reported an ABC of 58,053 and is in its fifth consecutive year of circulation growth. The brand reaches over five million fans a month on its digital network, centred around multi-award winning Beano.com.
