Tom Fletcher and WHSmith launch exclusive Christmasaurus toy and book

To celebrate Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day, WHSmith has teamed up with leading children’s author Tom Fletcher to launch the first ever Christmasaurus cuddly toy, based on Tom’s bestselling book The Christmasaurus. Together they aim to raise £50,000 to support Save the Children’s vital work.

Tom recently visited our education programmes in Rwanda which use innovative approaches to support children’s literacy development and reading, as well as teaching children about their rights.

Now available nationwide in WHSmith stores and online, this festive friend will be sold for £14.99 with a 20% (£3) donation to Save the Children. And a limited edition of The Christmasaurus book will also be sold exclusively in WHSmith to support Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day, which is being cold for £6.99 with a 50p donation to our vital work.

By purchasing The Christmasaurus toy and book, you’ll help Save the Children build a better future for children in the UK and around the world.
