The licensed confectionery specialist has signed up the licence for The Magic Roundabout movie, which is being released by Pathé on
February 11, to adorn a raft of its Easter offerings including some new products.
Characters will appear on Kinnerton’s chocolate Easter eggs (rsp: £1.49) and breakfast sets (£4.99 for a pack containing a cereal bowl, egg cup, mug and two chocolate eggs).
They will also front some new products from Kinnerton, including an egg cup, chocolate egg and cosy set (£1.99); Spring Time Treats (containers of mini chocolate eggs and egg-shaped marshmallow - £1.99); and Easter Clock Lamps, which are packs containing a chocolate egg alongside a keepsake bedside clock with touch lamp.
Another new product includes The Simpsons Torch Light - a drinks can-style torch with chocolate egg (£3.99).
Other licences - notably Barbie, Spider-Man 2, Fimbles and Shrek 2 - will also be out in force at Easter.
But Kinnerton is particularly excited about Postman Pat as a brand new series of 26 programmes is being broadcast on BBC2 and CBeebies in the new year to follow up the 26 episodes that were shown this autumn.
