Two More Toy Story 3 Characters
Mr Pricklepants and Dolly arrive

We’re nearing the end of the weekly looks at new characters from Toy Story 3, but there’s still time for a few more. This week, there is one new character in Dolly and one you might have seen before, but now comes with his full description: Mr Pricklepants!

Ladies first, shall we? “Dolly is a soft and sweet dress-up rag doll, and is the perfect gift for any young child! Her floppy body and sunny smile will make her an irresistible new member of your family.

“Dolly has purple hair, googly eyes and gently blushing cheeks. She comes with a pretty blue dress, but templates are included to create and sew your own outfits! Machine washable on gentle cycle.”

And now the world’s mostly cuddly hedgehog (admittedly not a load of competition there), Mr Pricklepants, voiced by British thespian legend Timothy Dalton.

“Frolic your afternoons away on woodland adventures with Mr. Pricklepants! This charming lederhosen-wearing hedgehog is from the Waldfreunde collection of premium imported plush toys. He may look prickly, but the plump and fuzzy Mr. Pricklepants is made strictly for cuddling! Hand wash and air dry. Restore fluffiness with fingers. Made in Germany.”

And if you've missed the debut of the other new Toy Story 3 characters in the past few weeks, catch up here...

Toy Story 3 hits our screens in July. It's too long to wait, we tell you. Too long!

Is it just me or does Mr. Pricklepants have something of an 80s rocker about him? I think it's his perm. More
