The RSPCA has launched some colourful stationery with the Buttercup Farm Friends characters just in time for the kids heading back to school.
The stationery features Rufus and Ruby the loveable dog and cat who are both RSPCA rescue animals who were rehomed to Buttercup Farm.
The fictional farm is also home to eight farm animals who have their own stories, endearing personalities and quirky phrases.
The new back to school sets arrive just in time for the RSPCA online shop re-launch.
Ellen Camillin, licensing manager at the RSPCA, said: “For the first time you can now see the lovely Buttercup Farm illustrations on stationery. We’re really hoping kids will love the colourful characters – and it’s the perfect time to set them up for a new school year.
“This coincides with the re-launch of the RSPCA online shop which includes a range of unique gifts and plenty of products for your pet.
“The stationery is ideal for young animal lovers and every purchase helps the RSPCA continue to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals in desperate need of care.”
The oldest and biggest animal welfare charity relies on donations to continue its vital work. The new online shop is full of unique merchandise from homewares to gifts to pet accessories and every purchase supports animals in need.
The RSPCA has teamed up with Scruffy Duck to create an eraser set, pencil case, pencils with a rubber topper, colouring pencils, a poster art tube with crayons and memo pads – so they will never forget to do their homework again!
They are designed by illustrator Sebastien Braun who was born in France and spent countless hours drawing during his early childhood. He studied art at university and spent a few years teaching art before becoming a freelance illustrator and lending his hand to children’s books.
As well as back to school stationery the Buttercup Farm gang will also feature on children’s clothing, wellies, games, gifts and plush characters.
