to Draw the Mr Men characters-
Adam Hargreaves, son of the creator of the Mr. Men, shows you how to
draw the characters to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the
In 1971, six-year-old Adam Hargreaves asked his father
“What does a tickle look like?” Roger Hargreaves responded with a round,
orange figure with long, bendy arms, and so Mr Tickle, the first of the
Mr. Men characters, was created. By the end of the year Mr. Bump, Mr.
Nosey, Mr. Sneeze, Mr. Greedy and Mr. Happy had been added to the
collection of books that would take the world by storm.
In 1981, the Little Miss books were added to the Mr. Men
series, and when Roger Hargreaves passed away in 1988, Adam took over
the reins of the cult series. The latest book, Little Miss Princess,
was released this year in time for the Royal Wedding. Today there are a
total of 47 Mr Men and 34 Little Miss books with each book based on a
new character, whose personality is reflected in their name.
To mark the 40th anniversary of the Mr. Men
books, which are still as popular today as ever, a new My Mr. Tickle
Colouring Book has been released. On the 5th September a Mr
Tickle gift set will also be released, which includes two Mr. Tickle
books, the original and glitter versions, and a soft Mr Tickle toy.
Also available is a How To Draw the Mr Men book and you
can even have your own personalised Mr Men storybook made, featuring
your name and character! In this video, Roger’s son Adam Hargreaves
teaches fans of the books how to draw some of the most loved characters.
