Pudsey Bear made his television debut in 1985
He was designed by Joanna Ball, a BBC graphics designer, who named him after the West Yorkshire town where she was born. He proved very popular and returned as BBC Children in Need's official logo the following year with his design amended to that of a yellow bear with a red spotted bandage.
In the two decades which have followed, Pudsey has received letters, drawings and e-mails from youngsters all over the UK and been photographed with more celebrities than he can remember.
Apart from a party hat worn in 2004 to celebrate the telethon's silver jubilee, Pudsey has remained very much the same. But a 2007 revamp gave Pudsey a fresh new look and brighter colours in time for the 28th annual BBC Children in Need Appeal.
The Appeal todaySo far you have helped to raise over £650 million and you never cease to amaze us with your fabulous fundraising events and generous donations. However, there are still so many children that need your help.
This year's Appeal is on Friday 15 November and promises to be bigger and better than ever before. So make sure you get involved and help us to make a difference to children who need our help the most, especially in such tough economic times.
Items used for my Pudsey nail art as follows
- Sinful Colors in Snow me white.
- Disney nail art pens in yellow-blue-pink-green-black.
- Crystal Nails 2 in 1 base and top coat.
- Rhinestones various colours.
- Movable beady eye
I used a white polish as a base then using a dotting tool I did some dots using the different colour nail art polish/pens.
I then painted a bear shape with the yellow on the thumb then out-lined with the black did the same on the middle finger and glued the beady eye.
I used the Rhinestones on the ring finger and then applied a top coat.
