Despite our world facing unprecedented challenges, optimism and a positive attitude matter more than ever. Scientific evidence suggests that being happy may have significant benefits for your health. Being happy may also help combat stress, boost your immune system, protect your heart and reduce pain. What's more, it may even increase your life expectancy.


C'mon get happy

Chase your cares away

(as sung by Judy Garland)

For many of us, Men and Little Miss were part of our childhood 

You might have had a few well-read paperbacks or have been lucky enough to have the complete box set on your shelf. 

It all started in 1971 with Mr Tickle, and now he has many friends who make up the Mr Men and Little Miss series. These books feature some of the most internationally recognised and loved characters.

Our friend and partner, The Royal Mint, is marking this occasion with a series of coins to toast the darling Mr Men and Little Miss characters.

Say hello to The 50th Anniversary of Mr Men: The 2021 Collection. Celebrate fifty years of fun with some of your favourite childhood characters.
