Happy Chairtastic Beano Birthday!
Posted on July 23 2018
Yes it's true the Beano is 80 years old! It is Britain's longest running children's comic and first arrived on our shelves back in July 1938. The Beano has been enjoyed by generations of kids but it has also grown to hold a very special place in the hearts of millions of adults too. While they may not read it under the covers with a torch anymore people still love everything about this iconic publication and many revel in sharing the joy of their own children picking it up over and over again.
The adulation across many different industries and demographics is certainly testament to the Beano's status in the UK. Stella McCartney has created a collection based around the famous characters to show her appreciation for the Beano. The famous McManus galley in Dundee has even been renamed, temporarily, to the McMenace galley as part of the celebrations while hosting a special exhibition and we wanted to share our love for the Beano too.
We have been big fans of the Beano for more years than we may wish to admit and have created a very special Beano chair to show just how much we love it. This fun and wonderfully irreverent decoupage chair is proving very popular and features all your favourite characters including Dennis the Menace, Billy Whizz, Minnie the Minx, Roger the Dodger, Little Plum and of course Gnasher plus many more.
It makes for a fabulous office chair or even as a standalone feature piece in any room. But it's not just for grown ups, this chair would certainly be welcomed into any young readers bedroom ready to be the envy of their friends. Our Cheeky Beano Chair is also the perfect gift for any occasion - perhaps an anniversary or a special birthday or just as a treat for yourself. But whatever the occasion it is a totally unique present to be treasured forever.
