The Very Hungry Caterpillar gets cosy in Peter Alexander’s new sleepwear collection

Australia’s leading sleepwear brand Peter Alexander has partnered with Haven Global to launch the retailer’s first collaboration with Eric Carle’s timeless classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. The new deal sees the arrival of a 12-piece capsule collection of men’s, women’s, and children’s sleepwear.

“This collaboration has been a long-time coming,” said Yvonne King, managing director at Haven Global. “We knew Peter would create something really special and memorable with the world’s most famous caterpillar.”

Launched officially on August 7th, Penguin Random House, owners of the World of Eric Carle IP, were thrilled to see Peter Alexander debut his much anticipated first Hungry Caterpillar collection.

“We are delighted to bring these two brands together,” said Jackie DeMaio, licensing director, The Joester Loria Group. “The collaboration of Peter Alexander and Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar brings Eric’s bright artwork and beloved character off the pages onto beautifully designed sleepwear that is sure to delight the whole family.”

The collection is available in-store and online now while stocks last.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar, one of the top selling children’s books of all time, has been translated into 60 languages and has sold over 52 million copies since its publication in 1969.
