Fans of the Aldi Christmas advert won’t want to miss this.
Kevin the Carrot toys are set to go on sale in Aldi stores this week and you’ll have to act fast if you want to get your hands on one, as they’re expected to sell out pretty quickly.
Last year the plush toys flew off the shelves, with many then cropping up on online market sites such as eBay listed for as much as £1,000.
To prevent people from doing the same thing this year, the supermarket will only allow each customer to buy a maximum of two items of each product.
Customers will be able to buy cuddly toy versions of Kevin the Carrot and Katie as well as other family members, Chardonnay, Jasper and baby carrot.
Made from Velboa faux fur fabric the carrot toys, all dressed in festive jumpers, will be available in store and online from Thursday, Novemeber 22.
The toys will be priced at £3.99 each.
And for the first time the store will also be offering a giant Kevin the Carrot, which measures 100cm x 40cm x 30cm for £19.99.
The smaller Kevin toy will be sized at 25cm x 7cm x 9cm, while Katie the Carrot is a little smaller at 22.5cm x 7cm x 9cm.
If your little one isn’t a fan of Kevin and co, they can always grab themselves a Pascal the Parsnip, which is also a part of the range.
Aldi’s Christmas advert for 2018 saw Kevin the Carrot battling it out against the Wicked Parsnip to reunite with his family.
The ad, narrated by Jim Broadbent, shows Kevin’s children trapped in a cage as part of a Christmas dinner which was cooked by the Parsnip.
Having none of this, Kevin uses a champagne cork to dispose of Pascal and saves his wife and children.
However at the end, viewers quickly discover the entire thing is nothing more than a creative bedtime story Kevin is sharing with his little ones.
Aldi will subsequently be sharing a series of adverts over the festive period, where Kevin will recite well known fairy tales.
These will include ‘Kevin the Carrot and Pea-nocchio’, ‘Katie the Carrot and the Fairy Cake Mother’ and ‘Kevin the Carrot and RhubarbStiltskin’.
