Since the announcement of Aldi’s new range of Kevin the Carrot and Friends toys customers have been waiting to see what characters have made the list.
The plush toys will be available in stores and online from November 25 for just £3.99.
The toys in the range are stars of Aldi’s Christmas ad for this year. The advert is a take on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
It sees Kevin and friends whisking shoppers back to the 1800s, following the story of Christmas hating Ebanana Scrooge, who is reminded of the joys of Christmas by good guy, Kevin.

Kevin’s fans can recreate their own Christmas Carol with the latest plush toys, including Kevin, Katie and their Carrot Kids, dressed to the nines in Dickensian gear.
The range also sees the release of brand-new characters, such as Marcus Radishford, Ebanana Scrooge, The Spirit of Christmas, Banana Snowman, Peas & Goodwill and the return of Tiny Tom.
What’s more, a donation of £15,000 will be made to Aldi’s charity partner, Teenage Cancer Trust, from the sales of selected Kevin the Carrot products.
And Aldi is pledging to donate £10,000 from Marcus Radishford toy sales alone to Magic Breakfast – a charity dedicated to providing children with school breakfasts.
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi UK, said: “As well as committing to donate 1.8 million meals to families that need support over the festive period, we are also delighted to work with Marcus Rashford and Magic Breakfast to provide breakfasts to disadvantaged school children.
“Marcus Rashford has done some incredible work to make sure that school children don’t go hungry, and we hope that this £10,000 donation to Magic Breakfast will help to ensure children don’t sit in their morning lessons too hungry to learn.”
