We’re running a #SummerOlleeDay competition for children to design a new friend for Ollee. 

We’re looking for a new character to share Ollee’s world. Your child can win the chance to see their design turned into a real-life Ollee design by our Ollee creators – and get a framed print of this new character design to keep!
