Launched just over a month ago, the characters were given the number four spot, ahead of new Moshi Monster additions.
The feature, which appeared in John Lewis’s Autumn consumer magazine, said: “With their light grey fur, white snouts and cute blue noses, Tatty Teddy bears are adorable – and very collectable. Young fans can now recreate their world with several pocket-sized animals to amass, and a delightful Heart House they can all live in.”
Lucy Wynn Jones, Worlds Apart’s head of licensing, said: “We are thrilled that John Lewis has given our range this very early recognition. Initial feedback from retailers is extremely positive. It appears this range is really starting to capture little girls’ imaginations and with new developments in the pipeline, we are confident it will become a perennial favourite over time.”
