Make your own VIP Pudsey or Blush!

It’s Children In Need this Friday (November 15) and you’ve probably seen the VIP Pudsey bears ten celebrities have designed to be auctioned off for the charity.

Terry Wogan, Coldplay, Gary Barlow, One Direction, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Shirley Bassey, Brian May, Helen Mirren, Sir Paul McCartney and Joanna Lumley all designed their very own VIP Pudsey – Very Important Pudsey – and they are available to buy right now on Ebay.

Dame Shirley Bassey’s bear is currently out in front, with bids sitting at £2145 at time of writing – pulling up the rear is Dame Judi Dench’s bear, at £600. We love Joanna Lumley’s oh-so fashionable Patsy Ab Fab Pudsey, of course!

If you can’t afford to bid, then why not visit the Build-A-Bear workshop in Ocean Terminal and create your very own VIP Pudsey or Blush!
