Pudsey is the official mascot of BBC Children in Need. Pudsey Bear appeared in 1985, and instantly transformed the Children in Need brand. He was created by BBC designer Joanna Ball, and took his name from her home town in Yorkshire.
Also question is, what is Pudsey Bear's girlfriend called?
Blush Bear is being presented as a friend for the fund-raising drive's long-standing brand character Pudsey Bear. The charity said Blush was designed to increase its appeal and attract corporate partners.
Subsequently, question is, where can I get a Pudsey Bear?
You can purchase a Pudsey Bear soft toy, which can be found on the official website's store. The doll is available in numerous varieties; the medium 2019 Pudsey Bear is priced at £5.00, along with the Adopt a Pudsey edition for £10.00.

Why does Pudsey Bear wear an eyepatch?
Why he wears the eye-patch/bandage/bandana has never been fully explained, but we can assume it is to make Pudsey seem 'in need' himself, and relateable for the children the charity is working for. In 2009, Children In Need added a new bear to their collection as Blush joined the fundraising outfit.
