Today brings my next AW17 preview, with a sneak peek at the limited edition Pandora Children in Need charm for 2017! If you’re new to this, for the past two years Pandora UK have released an exclusive charm in support of the charity Children in Need. This is run by the BBC (our national television company) in support of disabled children and young people in Britain.
Read on to see how Pandora are supporting the charity this time around! :)
Pandora Children in Need Charm 2017
As in previous years, the charm represents the charity’s teddy bear mascot, Pudsey, who is known for his colourful bandana over one eye. The design is very similar to that of last year’s Pudsey, except this version is standing with one arm raised.
For reference, these were the two previous Pudsey charms:
This will be £40, and I’d expect it to have a release date falling in September or October. I’m told that Pandora is potentially switching charity next year, so this may well be the last Pandora CIN charm we see.
I’m not sure whether I’ll get this charm, as it’s so similar to 2016’s! On the one hand, I think the PandoraxPudsey campaigns are wonderful, and I would like to support CIN; plus, the collector in me would kind of like to have the set. On the other, I’m just not sure I can justify it.
Off topic – I am now back from holiday and will be getting back into the swing of things (and comments!) next week. :)
What do you think of this year’s charm? Will you be getting it?
