The new plush toys will be available to pre-order online from 22 May and in stores from 26 May.

What characters will the new toys be?

A regal Kevin will be available for a limited period to mark Her Majesty’s 70 years of service.

There will also be a Flag Waving Kevin available to purchase as well as Union Jack Kevin - who sports a stylish, patriotic suit.

His street-party ready wife Katie matches Kevin and sports an on-trend Union Jack dress, whilst the classic Queen’s Guard is the crowning jewel.

Kevin will also be joined by a series of royally appointed friends, including The Queen herself.

A plush toy of the Queen is dressed in an iconic regal purple skirt suit and her signature coiffured hair is topped with a jewelled crown.

She is accompanied by Prince Charles who dons his traditional medal adorned scarlet tunic.

Her Majesty’s adored Corgis are also available to buy in a choice of brown or grey and are sure to be a hit with both royal and dog fans alike.

What is Kevin the Carrot?

Kevin the Carrot is a firm favourite of Aldi shoppers and was launched six years ago in the supermarket’s Christmas advert.

Over 1.3 million Kevins sold in a one-week period last Christmas, and some Kevins can fetch up to £1,000 on eBay.

Fans of the nation’s favourite root vegetable will have to act fast if they want to get their hands on the limited-edition toys - once they’re gone, they’re gone.
