Aldi has bought back its much-loved Kevin the Carrot toy to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with limited edition versions of the cuddly vegetable.
There is a patriotic version of Kevin, as well as one waving the flag and one sporting the Union Jack.
The supermarket is also launching a whole host of celebratory friends, including the Queen herself, Prince Charles and her adored corgis.
The new plush toys are now available to buy in store and online. Individual toys, such as the Queen and Prince Charles, have sold out, but there are bundles still available.
What characters are the new toys?
A regal Kevin will be available for a limited period to mark Her Majesty’s 70 years of service.
There is a Flag Waving Kevin available to purchase as well as Union Jack Kevin - who sports a stylish, patriotic suit.
His street-party ready wife Katie matches Kevin and sports an on-trend Union Jack dress, whilst the classic Queen’s Guard is the crowning jewel.
Kevin is also joined by a series of royally appointed friends, including The Queen herself.
A plush toy of the Queen is dressed in an iconic regal purple skirt suit and her signature coiffured hair is topped with a jewelled crown.
She is accompanied by Prince Charles who dons his traditional medal adorned scarlet tunic.
Her Majesty’s adored Corgis are also rendered in a choice of brown or grey.
Currently the individual toys have sold out but there is promise of restocks.
