A shortlist of five inventions will also be displayed at the launch of Little Miss Inventor at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester on 24 March 2018.

Once they have drawn and labelled their invention it just needs to be scanned or photographed and uploaded to the Little Inventors site.

Alastair McHarrie, Licensing Director at Sanrio said ‘We’re really excited to bring someone’s invention to life in an upcoming Mr. Men Little Miss Title. We receive lots of suggestions and tips for new characters and storylines from our fans, and we thought this series is the perfect opportunity to make one reality.’

The competition is run in partnership with Little Inventors, an organisation dedicated to helping bring the ideas of children to life. Little Inventors challenges children aged 4 to 12 to think up and draw their invention ideas and then asks local makers, designers and artists to turn the most engaging ideas into real prototypes for exhibition across the world.
