There have been lots of exciting previews and sneak peeks lately, and today’s post brings another, with a look at an upcoming new limited edition charm for the UK! The charm will be sold in support of the BBC’s Children in Need charity, and features Pandora’s take on the CIN mascot, Pudsey the teddy bear:
For those who aren’t familiar with it, Children in Need is a UK charity run by the BBC (our national television company) in support of disabled children and young people in Britain. It’s a pretty big deal here and they run big televised appeals every November. :) Last year’s appeal raised £32 million!
Its mascot is Pudsey, a teddy bear who wears a bandana over one eye – he’s very recognisable here in the UK!

The charm features Pudsey’s signature bandana, detailed in white enamel and multi-coloured CZ stones. It will reportedly be exclusive to the UK – and I can’t imagine what appeal it would have in other regions, in any case!
From what I’ve heard, this charm should be available from the 5th of October and will be sold until Children In Need airs on the 13th of November. It is priced at £40.

I have a great deal of affection for the Children in Need appeal thanks to childhood memories fundraising for it and I think it’s absolutely wonderful that Pandora have created a charm in support of it. It’s also pretty exciting to have an exclusive charm here in the UK again. ^^
What do you think of this LE charm? Will you be getting it?
