Kevin the Carrot has become one of the most beloved Christmas characters to be introduced in recent years, having been the star of the Aldi Christmas advert for the past five years.
Each Christmas, Aldi releases Kevin the Carrot toys, and each year it’s a mad scramble amongst fans to get their hands on one.
Anticipating the huge popularity of Kevin the Carrot toys in 2020, Aldi has employed the use of Queue-It software to help manage the demand. The software is the same used by the organisers of music festival, Glastonbury, to manage ticket sales.
Customers will be restricted to buying a maximum of two of each toy, in order to ensure that everyone gets a chance to get their hands on their desired toy.
The Kevin the Carrot range is classed as an Aldi Specialbuy, meaning when they’re out of stock, they’re gone for good and won’t be restocked.
