"Suitable for museum or gallery"
It really has never been about trying to find a missing child has it.
It is about Madeleine as a product, a brand, and marketing opportunities.
Even if TM are not doing this themselves, they must have given permission for the reproduction of the image.
I can't see how long these things have been on sale.

They must have been out there for a while, if they where from this year why not use the newest age enhanced picture of how she may look like?

Is this a spoof??

I have looked this up and this is what it comes up with on Amazon.....

Gosh! What would it be like to attend one of these strategy meetings of TM? I envision a conference table, accountants, a large whiteboard or now that we're a little further, probably a promotional video of the designers of these products.
Notes being taken, the SY approved photograph definitely, even if she looks so ordinary instead of the little princess poster. So we have to have the princess poster, don't mention the coloboma although it is in each of the photographs. Apparently SY haven't got as far as 2011 yet when it was scrapped.

Mugs with this image on? Tea towels, lets just float these to see how it goes and then we can go on the the excellent offers from the manufacturers of key rings, baseball caps and oven gloves. Or contact NZ wine companies to add the image to their labels?

Well, the second book bombed, the first probably hasn't made the advance yet, the film never materialised and April Jones is now first in line to get a documentary.

The wrist bands and tee shirts were tacky and imo in very bad taste, but this really scrapes the bottom of the chav barrel.

I doubt dog food manufacturers will be considered.

I have searched everywhere for words in the original link, using google, nothing comes up except this forum. I have searched Amazon, under tote bags, Madeleine McCann products, and even discussions, nothing. So where has this original link come from?

I don't know but it has my name on as does the latest real one. Very clever, I bet the parents are livid they didn't think of it first.

I think it's just the link that's faulty as I went to Amazon and typed Madeleine McCann into the browser and the bag was on the first page of the search. It is someone called Art247 that is selling it along with fridge magnets etc. and the bag was first listed on October 10th

Here is the Amazon page, if this company is using images without paying for copyright, they might be in trouble. Unless the Fund has sold the use of these images and the production thereof to this firm. Which is quite possible imo.

Yes it has, since it was realised that this is a spoof.

We should have known it wasn't the McCanns behind this; the goods aren't tacky enough for them!

The original title of the thread was New Product iirc. I think it's only fair to point out that the title of a thread has been changed. PeterMac gave the link. Is it fair to ask where he found that link?

ETA. Who decided it was a spoof and who changed the thread title?

I don't think it's a spoof. Here is a page of their other products.

If I enter a search on the amazon site "madeleine shopping bag" there are a number of results returned and one of them is that bag in Peter Mac's link.

The Find Madeline site is up and running but when I go into their online store, there are no products available to purchase, just an error message. I am distraught, I wanted a good quality wristband.

Art247.com own website has Madeleine items listed for sale, even a print of the spotty man ! What is going on ?

Thanks Jean and Candyfloss. It must be karma, my computer can't access the shop.

I might get myself a print of the spotty man suspect instead.

This reminds me of the pool photo used in the holiday website not so long ago, which was widely condemned by the press and TM.

Indeed, what is going on?
