Shaun The Sheep Is Top Spot For March!

Little Acorns Top 5 Best Sellers

Little Acorns Top 5 Best Sellers

Hello all,

As I’m writing this I’m looking out and its pouring down with rain, and I have just heard on the news that this summer is going to be the best on record – Funny thing is they said the same last year, and I can remember we had one good week!

Anyway, I thought you might be interested in our “Top Five” for March, and the top five being the top five best sellers for us this month.

1. Shaun The Sheep
2. Elmer The Elephant
3. Wallace & Gromit
4. Mr Maker Making Kits
5. Waybuloo

The number one seller Shaun The Sheep, is no shock to us in honesty, as it fills that position nearly every month. We have a good customer base in the UK, and a very good customer base in Europe & America.

Elmer coming in second is due to our European customers, whilst Wallace & Gromit does well in the UK and America. Mr Maker seems to be a UK market toy for us, I actually don’t remember one Mr Maker toy being sent overseas, but as it’s a CBBC show, that would make sense really.

And last but not least is our brand new Waybuloo toys, as we have sold quite a few of the very nice wooden toys to customers in the UK and America.

I hope you found that a little interesting, as it was a quick blog entry really.

Thanks again for reading, and I hope we can all enjoy a nice summer this year with the children.

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 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.
