Sega launches Only Fools and Horses plush and its lovely jubbly

Sega Amusements International has detailed the release of its Only Fools and Horses plush, the result of a close collaboration with BBC Studios.

Iconic characters from the show including Del Boy, Rodney, Uncle Albert and the trusty Trotters van are now each available in plush form.

Adding to the big reveal, Only Fools and Horses superfan Ricky Hatton MBE has become one of the first to own the complete collection, a line up that now adds to his booming collection of memorabilia of the show.

Hatton famously drives his own version of the Trotters van to his local gym.

“We have worked closely with the BBC Studios to produce the iconic show characters in cuddly plush form for the very first time and feel privileged to have been given the opportunity,” said Trevor Clarke, head of the SAI merchandise department.

“The plush has been an instant success with our customers and we have had some fantastic feedback, this cherished property is really working well for our customers.”

Julie Kekwick, senior licensing manager at BBC Studios, added: “We are thrilled the plush range is proving to be so popular with fans and feel the range is a fantastic addition to our licensing portfolio for Only Fools and Horses.”
