“ Brand: Carte Blanche / Type: Figurine „
Now you may think, hold on a minute I have read this already and you may well have but thanks goes out to TheChocolateLady who has had the correct category opened for me so here goes again....
I am sure you are probably all aware of Me to You bear with the little blue nose well these are some friends of his (or hers). I received My Blue Nose Friend figurine - Breeze for my birthday after expressing how cute I thought the figurines were in my local Smart Ideas store. They are made by Carte Blanche the same as Me to You bears.
My figurine came in a blue box with little tiny stars on and a sticker to tell me it is 'Breeze' in the box and also a limited edition number of 2059 I was very excited to receive this gift so opened it up to examine in side. Inside I found polystyrene with breeze tucked safely inside. Alongside Breeze I also found a little wardrobe shaped leaflet with the other collectables from the range on and a little plastic card which has a picture of Breeze on the front with a shiny blue nose and the caption 'The shy and affectionate butterfly... who will always make your heart flutter' on. On the back of the card it says 'Breeze is a friend of....' and then there is a space for your name. I thought this was quite a nice touch and have stood my card up behind my figurine.
So who is Breeze?
Breeze is a white teddy bear who has a baby blue nose, baby blue antenna like a butterfly, baby blue and pink butterfly wings which are glittery. He also has the same patches as Me to You bears have one on his (or her lol) bum belly and head and pink feet which are velvety to touch. He also has four arms the top arms are touching his feet and his bottom arms are wrapped around his belly like his is giving himself a hug.
Underneath it tells me that my Breeze is a Worldwide Limited Edition and is 2059 of 2500 he is Hand made and Hand Painted and is number Number 27 I have had a look on the My Blue nose friends site http://carteblanchegreetings.com/mybluenosefriends /wardrobe/friend/essence and found out that there are 55 friends but that is a mixture of cuddly toys and figurines.
My figurine is made from resin and is fairly heavy. His antenna seem quite stirdy but I wouldn't fancy there chances of staying on if I dropped him on the floor so keep away from children if you don't want parts falling off.
I like my little Breeze and have now asked for other friends from the series so I can collect them all.
I am after Echo the Bat for Halloween and Jingle the Reindeer for Christmas. My boyfriend informs he paid £30 for mine from Smart Ideas but looking them up you can get them for £15 online so I shall be directing him to the cheaper website for next gift, next time I can have 2 for the price of 1 lol.
5 stars well made figurines with there own little personality.
