Carte Blanche Group created Me to You in 1995. The brand has since grown across the globe, with over 79 million Me to You plush bears sold since 2000.

Stephen Haines, chairman and founder of Carte Blanche, said: "Ever since Me to You launched 18 years ago, the consumer has been at the forefront of everything we do.

"Me to You has evolved over time but at the heart of it all, Tatty Teddy carries a timeless message of love and friendship.

"We're delighted to unveil the latest evolution of our classic bear and I believe he has never been cuter, engendering both heritage and a relevancy to today's consumer."

New products in the A/W Me to You gift collection include a range of winter warmers such as Tatty Teddy fleece blankets, cushions, travel mugs and hot water bottles.

A brand new collection of Me to You 3D greetings cards also picture Tatty Teddy in a range of winter season scenarios.
