Only Franklin Teddy's in the shops?

Sun Sep 19, 2010 10:48 pm

I have always wondered why this is...

My girlfriend loves all of the Halloween characters at Alton Towers, but Patch in particular.
Unfortunately they only ever seem to have the Franklin teddys in any of the shops though.

Have they ever had any of the other characters available? If not, any ideas why they chose to solely produced Franklin and none of the others?

The rest of the teddys should be in the shop during Scarefest. (:

Really? are you sure?
We've been to every Scarefest since they returned in 2007 and they have only ever had the Franklin characters in stock.

Just a quick question, how much are the teddy's?

Trying to figure out how much money I'm going to need to take without making myself broke :P

They are currently £12 on the Alton Towers online store:
https://secure.altontowersresort.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay?categoryId=41103&catalogId=15551&storeId=10651&langId=-1

Not too sure how much they are on the Park itself, but I imagine the Franklin Teddy's aren't this expensive.

They need to add alot more merchandise on there and maybe an online discount or two. I know if they had some decent stuff on there I would deffo buy some stuff. Maybe even a buy now collect on park service. So you could buy a product and collect it on park such as photos or even a gift card that you can spend on park so no need to take money with you.

They are £12 at the Park too. My daughter got herself a Blivvy Bear and a Th13teen Bear in the Summer.
