DC Thomson Consumer Products licensees are showcasing a range of new products for The Beano and its star characters Dennis the Menace and Gnasher this week at Spring Fair in Birmingham, England.

“We have clearly differentiated design themes for our kids' and adult products, and as such we have developed a segmented approach for our The Beano portfolio," says Tim Collins, head of brands, DC Thomson. "Classic artwork is used on high-quality products that cater for the adult gift market, whilst the more lively Dennis the Menace and Gnasher ranges target our younger audience who know and love the prankster duo from the leading CBBC TV series, digital apps and recent publishing titles.”

Among the partners showcasing new The Beano products are:
