BBC Children in Need Pudsey Bear Character Costume

Pudsey Bear is the official mascot for the BBC Charity Children In Need. He’s often seen at events around the country, helping change the lives of children and young people throughout the UK.

PLEASE NOTE: This specific costume is not for sale or hire. It is subject to copyright and is here for your inspiration only.


First designed in 1985, today’s Pudsey has undergone a slight update from the original, with the introduction of multi-coloured spots on the bandana and the removal of his black buttons, but he’s just as cute and friendly as he has ever been.

Please note, Costumes with Character are the official supplier of Pudsey bear to BBC CIN, producing Pudsey for CIN and their partners.

We are unable to hire out Pudsey, as he is made to order.
