Aldi sells Cuthbert The Caterpillar toy despite M&S lawsuit


Aldi has launched a toy version of its Cuthbert The Caterpillar cake, following his appearance in the supermarket’s latest Christmas advert.

The German discounter’s plush toy range, which includes Kevin The Carrot and Marcus Radishford, has proved popular with customers in recent years.

Plush toys from the beloved Kevin the Carrot range appeared on Ebay or many times their retail price following their launch two years ago.

The Cuthbert the Caterpillar plush toy range is available for purchase in-stores only for £3.99 from November 25.

Aldi found itself embroiled in a lawsuit from Marks and Spencer earlier this year after a claim that its Cuthbert cake was similar to M&S’s famous Colin the Caterpillar cake.

M&S started legal action against Aldi in April to protect its Colin the Caterpillar cake with the claim that the Cuthbert the Caterpillar product infringes its trademark.

M&S lodged an intellectual property claim with the High Court and said it wants Aldi to remove the product from sale and agree not to sell anything similar in the future.

Despite this, Aldi’s social media team sent out tweets poking fun at M&S for the lawsuit.
