About Us

Classic Characters is a family business born out of a passion for storytelling in comic caption form. From Peanuts to Paddinton, Miffy to Moomins, Asterix to Tintin, we love the defined colours and drawing style that gives classic comic artwork its unique personality.

Our own story spans two generations and covers more than 30 years’ experience across retail, gift shops, online stores, shows and conventions. With this firm foundation in place, we decided it was high time for us to develop and share our enthusiasm for Classic Characters.

Our range now also extends to a variety of other homeware gifts that appeal to our aesthetic.

We are committed to delivering a friendly service that reflects our personal passion for the products we sell. We hope you enjoy browsing through our collection of iconic models, toys, stationery, books, homeware gifts and t-shirts.
