Products including the the Balloon spot book bag and the balloon spot skirt, both of which featured a blue and white spotty pattern with Winnie-the-Pooh holding a balloon interspersed between them, sold out within hours of the first day.

Sue Chidler, marketing director at Cath Kidston said: “We have had an incredible reaction to the Winnie-the-Pooh launch.

“We saw customers previewing the Winnie-the-Pooh range from 3pm and when we opened up access to the pre-sale, numbers soared immediately.”
