Young inventors could see their own creations immortalised in upcoming Little Miss book

Young inventors are being given the chance to make Mr Men and Little Miss history by having their invention featured in an upcoming book title.

Sanrio has launched a competition to celebrate the launch of Little Miss Inventor in which children have the chance to see their invention immortalised in the Mr Men Little Miss series.

The newest addition to the classic series, Little Miss Inventor uses brainpower to think up inventions to help her friends. The competition’s winning entry will be drawn into an upcoming Mr Men Little Miss book.

A shortlist of five inventions will also be displayed at the launch of Little Miss Inventor at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester on March 24th.

The competition is calling on fans aged three to seven to visit and download the drawing sheet and come up with an invention to help Mr Bump avoid accidents.

The competition will run until February 25th in conjunction with Little Inventors, an organisation dedicated to helping bring the ideas of children to life.

Alastair McHarrie, licensing director at Sanrio, said: “We are really excited to bring someone’s invention to life in an upcoming Mr Men Little Miss title. We receive lots of suggestions and tips for new characters and storylines from our fans, and we thought this series is the perfect opportunity to make one a reality.”
