and Aardman have been long-term partners.
They led the High Street with their top-selling
of Wallace & Gromit goodies. When Chicken
along, they stocked a shed-load of other folk's licensed
items and they introduced their own small range
exclusive editions as part of their Xmas 2000
Chicken Run figures
Three exclusive resin figures were produced. They
between 6 and 8 inches tall. Sadly, they
in a lot of stores, so you had to make a special
to track 'em down...
Hot Water Bottle Cover
A warm Winter water bottle, or just a pyjama case,
prefer. This one stood around two foot tall...
8 inch tall ceramic egg had jelly beans inside...
Chicken Run Mug
was at least one Boots Exclusive "Chicken Run"
mug design in store from
Portico. It featured Fowler,
Rocky, Mac, Bunty, Ginger and Babs lined up against
barbwire and it wasn't availble anywhere else...
Top of the range were these chicken-shaped kids
slippers, still a desirable item and much sought-after
I receive umpteen requests from folks seeking
these, but I can only say this: All of these Boots
were de-listed back in 2001, which means you'll have
keep your eye on the secondhand markets, eBay and
suchlike, to find any. But I can't say I like the idea
secondhand slippers (Yeek!)...
