Me to You releases Christmas animation

Published on: 30th November 2016

The animation encourages people to send Christmas cards to their loved ones.

metoyou480Created as part of Tatty Teddy’s 21st anniversary celebrations, the animation shows the importance of remembering those we love at Christmas through the simple act of sending a Christmas card.

Starting where the original Me to You story left off, the animation is based around the little girl who found Tatty Teddy and her excitement around the build up to Christmas. The little girl eagerly writes all her Christmas cards and awaits a card in return, trying to hide her disappointment when none arrive while her bear watches on.

Jason Pepperall, Me to You marketing manager, commented: “We had an opportunity to build upon our original story of Tatty Teddy this Christmas that not only focused on our key brand values of love and sentiment, but also reminds us to think of those special to us at Christmas time.”

The animation’s artwork was created by Me to You artist Steve Mort-Hill, the voice over was recorded by fellow artist Michael Cooper and it was animated by Southampton based content marketing agency, Headstream. It will be distributed on the brand’s Facebook and Instagram pages and supported with 12 days’ worth of Tatty Teddy giveaways featuring a different Me to You product each day.
