Beano steps up boardgames, gifts and toys ranges in its 80th year

The iconic British comic brand the Beano is celebrating its 80th anniversary with the launch of a new Christmas gift, games and toys range.

The new collection spans personalised 2019 Beano Annuals all the way to Beano inspired board games, toys and stocking fillers.

Beano Cluedo, in which players must investigate and unravel the mystery to find out who pranked teacher, currently sits alongside Beano Monopoly where players fight for their right to party and own the hallways of Bash Street School.

The gaming range is completed by Beano Guess Who starring all the favourite Beano characters.

Meanwhile, there’s a collection of more nostalgia-driven gifts that includes a Beano golf set as well as a ‘practical joke’ line that features a spud gun and a Dennis whoopee cushion.
