Elmer is back in stock!

Hello all you Elmer fans. I’m happy to announce that our Elmer The Elephant range has been replenished.

Elmer The Elephant

Elmer The Elephant Soft Toy at Little Acorns Gifts

Elmer had a very busy Christmas with us, and we are so happy to have Elmer back.

The soft toy itself is very high quality and the perfect partner to the fantastic books written by David McKee.

Elmer is the story of an elephant who was different to all the other elephants because he was patchwork and therefore lots of colours. Elmer did not want to be different, he wanted to be elephant colour like all the other elephants.

So one day he hatches a fabulous plan. He rolls around in berry juice and becomes elephant colour and finally one of the crowd. However life as a grey elephant is a little boring for Elmer and he finds out it isn’t that bad being different at all.

The book ends with Elmer giving all the elephants the biggest surprise of all which makes them laugh “as they never had before“. They decide to honor him with a parade each year where they decorate themselves to become colourful like him.

The moral of the story is be happy with who you are.

We will post any news on Elmer in this category, and we really hope you can enjoy an Elmer toy too one day.

Where’s Nev gone?

Yes where has Nev from Bear Behaving Badly on CBBC gone!
Nev Talking Soft Toy

Nev

He’s still on TV, he’s very much wanted by children and adults, and he’s out of stock everywhere.

Basically they stopped making him late last year, which was a bit silly me thinks especially as Christmas was looming, but thats not for me to comment on really, as I don’t know what has happened to be honest.

But we pray that he will be made again, as he is very popular, a good seller, and in honesty it has upset me to read so many emails asking for Nev, as so many children love him and wanted him for Christmas.

So we will keep him on the site until we find out exactly what is going on, and once we do we will let all our customers know via email, and on our brand new Blog.

Hello Little Acorns Visitors!

Welcome to Little Acorns Gifts & Collectables Blog. We hope all our customer will find this Blog useful in relation to our stock. Be it when new stock is arriving, when we will be re-stocked and unfortunately from time to time, when stock doesnt work, and we have to let it go.

I guess with that, the first thing to say is that we will be stocked up again soon after the Christmas period. These things can sometimes take a while whilst you look at new items, new stockists and waiting for stock to come in. But hopefully we will be up to date soon.

This is a family run business, and we have some very big companies out there to compete against, but we will try our best by offering a first class service through very quick communication, when we can next day delivery and cut price stock.

Thanks also to all our customers, and we hope you will tell others what a great company we are! (cough! cough!) 

Thank you for visiting.

Oh! And please link to us if you like our blog.
