Its been too long since the super popular original Withit Characters developed in 1996 have been seen in stores, but Woolworths in South Africa will be launching a ladies nightwear pyjama set this year. The deal which is a Direct to Retail program managed by CLM Ltd in Cape Town has been running for over year with Joey and Joy being the main brand carried by the retailer. Chocolate Moose, a long time favourite, first appeared in W H Smiths on stationery but went on to appear on nightwear in Dunnes and BHS back in 2006/7. Just proves you can’t bit the temptation of chocolate!!
