Featured Characters


At Conkeedar Trading, we have a love of all things cartoon, videogame and most importantly character based; good characters with memorable features, good depth and likeability are what make the movie industry, television industry and videogame industry exist - without them, they would not be a shadow of what they are.

This section is dedicated to some of our favourite characters whose merchandise we stock here at Characterheroes.

 

Disney Characters


Disney is a huge global "multinational mass media corporation" which began its journey in the "silent era" of the 1920's with silent animated cartoons. The real success began to kick in with Mickey Mouse and his silly symphonies between 1928 and 1934. Since then the company has gone from strength to strength and has incorporated literally hundreds of unique and entertaining characters in many many different forms.

Examples of popular characters from Disney would include the obvious and obligatory Mickey and Minnie Mouse, as well as Daisy and Donald Duck, to the Little Mermaid, Aladdin, all of the Disney Princesses - more recent examples of Disneys work would include Wreck It Ralph, Monsters Inc, Monsters University etc.

Hello Kitty


Hello Kitty was created by Yuki Shimizu who works for a Japanese company by the name of Sanrio. Hello Kitty is of course a cat - specifically a Japanese bobtail cat wearing her signature red bow. Unlike many of the characters in this section the first appearance of Hello Kitty was actually on a purse as opposed to in a game, book, cartoon etc - this first purse featuring Hello Kitty goes back to 1974, a couple of years later Hello Kitty was localized and ported over to the USA.

There has in more recent years been several Hello Kitty TV series for young children, and an abundance of merchandise featuring the worlds favourite Japanese Bobtail Cat has taken the world by storm. It is said that the marketing and merchandising of the Hello Kitty character and series is worth around 5 billion USD in a year. The actual character of Hello Kitty is known in the programs as Kitty White or Kitty Chan, and the official profiles say she was born in London, England.

Our Hello Kitty merchandise is predominantly aimed at a female audience and some examples of the items we feature are; Hello Kitty Girls T-Shirts, Hello Kitty Plush toys, Backpacks, Messenger bags, baseball caps, books, figurines and party supplies.

Looney Tunes


How much more classic and retro do you get than Warner Bros. Looney Tunes? This was produced ORIGINALLY as a series of short films between 1930 and the late 1960s. Popular characters you might remember from this series include;
Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Sylvester the Cat, Tweety, Taz the Tazmanian Devil, Marvin the Martian, Wile E Coyote and Pepé Le Pew the stinky love skunk!

The Looney Tunes series is a worldwide franchise now and there have been points in time where it outshone all of its competitors, even Disney. Bugs Bunny to this day is revered by most as an icon in cartoon characters - he has also been in more films than any other cartoon character at the time I write this (Theres a fascinating fact for you!)

The legend that is Bugs Bunny.

We have recently introduced a range of Looney Tunes merchandise for baby boys and girls, older boys and girls, and even some stuff for adults.

Moshi Monsters


Moshi Monsters began as a website for children where a child could choose between six popular Moshi's to be their own and to name and nurture. The six starter Moshi's were Diavlo, Luvli, Katsuma, Poppet, Zommer and Furi. After its popularity was realised the merchandise was never going to be far away, a flood of figurines, trading cards, magazines, toys, soft toys and even a very popular Nintendo DS game soon followed.

Moshi Monsters original characters

The company responsible for Moshi Monsters was called Mind Candy. There has been comparisons between Moshi Monsters and Pokemon ("Pocket Monsters") though I am not personally sure I see the link other than the word Monsters...

We offer a wide range of colourful designs of Moshi Monsters T-Shirts for Boys and Girls as well as backpacks (school bags), swimwear, activity books and scooters.
 

Mr Men & Little Miss


We all remember these classics from when we grew up right? that's because they've been around over 40 years at the time of writing this - the first six Mr. Men books were actually released on August 10th, 1971. The Mr. Men and Little Miss series became popular because people could relate to them and most importantly because they were cute and funny.

These little books sold over 3 million copies. After the initial popularity of the books, the BBC then immortalized the Mr Men franchise even further by running a TV show in the 70's. Since then they are still going strong there is now all sorts of media, clothing, dvds, cards, gift bags, themed medical goods and loads more available globally featuring these little guys.

We offer a wide range of T-Shirts featuring Mr Men and Little Miss Characters for adults and children (genuine, licensed, official UK merchandise) and also a range of boxer shorts for boys and men. An example of some of the items we offer are below:-

 

Super Mario Bros


The most iconic videogame character of all time? Yes. Did you know in a survey done in the mid 90's that Super Mario was more recognisable to children in North America than Mickey Mouse? That's quite a feat for a portly Italian plumber from Brooklyn. And to this day nothing seems to have changed, there is no sign in a decrease in the popularity of the Super Mario Bros series. Over the years there has been a huge amount of different Mario merchandise, particularly in the "MARIO MANIA" period of the early 90's where pretty much any company you could imagine was riding on the waves of Mario's popularity from McDonalds, to Taco Bell, to Milk adverts for schools!

We offer a huge selection of colourful Mario T-Shirts for boys and girls in both long and short sleeved designs, we also have hoodies, baseball caps, collectible figures, keychains, retro DVD's of the Super Mario Bros. Super Show and an unrivalled selection of Super Mario plush toys

Sonic the Hedgehog


Sonic the Hedgehog was Sega's answer to Nintendo's Mario and was also intended to replace Alex Kidd as the sega mascot. The first sonic games came out in the early 90's in north america. Where Mario would have been known for his jumping, Sonic was known for his speed. His main rival is and pretty much always has been Doctor Ivo Robotnik who in most modern games is known as Doctor Eggman - a mad scientist. Sonics best friend is called Tails; a two tailed Fox who has been his sidekick for over 20 years.

Although Sega lost out to Nintendo in the battle of the consoles all those years ago, Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series of games have been pledged (along with other Sega productions) exclusivity to Nintendo consoles for the next couple of years. We stock a wide variety of Sonic the Hedgehog T-Shirts for Boys and Girls, as well as long sleeved jumpers, board shorts, Sonic the Hedgehog figure sets, baseball caps, pyjamas and even boxer shorts!
