They have taken the US by storm. Now Floppets are launching here just in time for Christmas.

The little characters and animals (rsp: £1.99), can be attached using Velcro to clothes, bags and shoes. They can also be worn as rings or linked together to create wrist bands and necklaces.

The collectibles will be merchandised in 18-piece retail ready packs and go on sale through Menzies Distribution and Smiths News from 28 November.
