Charlie Bucket, a good-hearted boy from a poor family who lives in the shadow of Willy Wonka’s extraordinary chocolate factory. Twice a day, on his way to and from school, little Charlie Bucket has to walk right past the gates of the factory. Every time he goes by he begins to walk very, very slowly, and hold his nose high in the air and take long deep sniffs of the gorgeous chocolatey smell all around him. Oh, how he loves that smell! And oh, how he wishes he could go inside the factory and see what it’s like.
Long isolated from his own family, Wonka launches a worldwide contest to select an heir to his candy empire. Five lucky children, including Charlie, find Golden Tickets hidden inside Wonka chocolate bars and win a guided tour of the legendary chocolate factory that no-one has been inside for 15 years. Dazzled by one amazing sight after another, Charlie is drawn into Wonka’s fantastic world in this astonishing and enduring story. Inspired by Quentin Blake’s original illustrations, Steiff bring their scrumdiddlyumptious style to the beloved Roald Dahl classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with their heart warming interpretation of Charlie Bucket.
