Elf Mates will be launched on 3rd November in Poundland stores for the 2019 season across the UK and will be manufactured and distributed by Hunter Price, the official and exclusive licensee and distributor for Elf Mates in the UK.
The first wave of the Elf Mates range consists of three playable and collectible characters including: Elf Mates Chef, Elf Mates Toy Maker and Elf Mates Cobbler. There will also be a comprehensive line of accessories to enhance the interaction experiences for children and families, including a storybook that tells the special story of Elf Mates.

CCA and B is a family-owned and family-led business and Elf Mates brand values are rooted in these sentiments, encouraging togetherness and fun family-friendly moments. Elf Mates can be identified by their heart charm, and are designed for children to play with all year round.
Christa Pitts, founder and co-CEO at CCA and B, said: “The Elf on the Shelf has been a huge success in the UK & Ireland, becoming a treasured Christmas tradition amongst families. Elf Mates are family friendly, promote kindness and good behaviour and are available at a great price point to the UK marketplace. We’re very excited to bring this high-quality product line to consumers in the UK market with Poundland as our official retail partner for 2019.”
