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.

Shirley, Timmy & Shaun The Sheep Soft Toys

Hello world, 

As promised in my first Shaun The Sheep post, I would let you all know once the stock had arrived, and it has arrived and the truth is I am having to order more beanies as they went so quickly. So if you want to buy one from us and its isn’t there, we will have some more in by the end of next week. 

The first Shaun The Sheep toy in our store was ‘Shivering Shaun The Sheep’: 

Shivering Shaun The Sheep

Shivering Shaun The Sheep

Shivering Shaun the Sheep is so cute and is a perfect cuddle companion. Pull Shivering Shaun’s tail to make him shiver, but with the winter we just had, I’m sure he would have shivered anyway! 

He’s made from a soft woolly material, and a simple wash will keep him clean, especially with all that farmyard muck around. 

Our next Shaun toys are the very, very popular beanie toys. These are always the first to run out and this year we have a new character beanie in Whistling Shirley beanie toy

Shirley is the biggest sheep in the gang, and she does have a rather nasty wind problem, but her size allows Shaun to be more creative with his antics. 

Our other beanie, is Whistling Shaun, again same as Shirley, you squeeze their bellies, and they whistle the Shaun The Sheep theme tune, sang and written by Vick Reeves.

Shaun is made from a durable woolly material that is extremely soft to touch, and is the perfect pocket-money toy. 

Another toy that made it through from 2009 is the Stick on Shaun The Sheep, and these are great fun for young ones to play with in the car. It’s funny as I see them as I make my way in and home everyday, and sometimes wonder if it was bought from us, I doubt it mind as they are in most big toy stores, but its a nice thought.

Stick on Shaun The Sheep has suction pads on his paws so he can be stuck to any window, mirror or any other suitable surface. 

He does have stick on company in Stick on Little Lamb on Board, Timmy is the baby in the gang, but he’s so cute and again one of these stuck on the car window, is great fun for babies and young kids, or even young at heart adults like myself.

Stick on Timmy is currently out of stock, but we hopefully will be having more in soon. 

There is more Shaun The Sheep toys coming in the summer and once they are available, I will post them on here. 

Thanks again for reading our blog, have a nice day.

Shaun The Sheep Series 2 Toys

Hi all Shaun The Sheep fans, and there are in honesty loads of you out there, including me!

Brand New Shaun The Sheep Stock

Brand New Shaun The Sheep Stock

Shaun in 2009 was our most popular range, the Cry Baby Timmy’s where very popular, and we couldnt stock the beanie toys quick enough. Another very popular toy was the farmyard friends set, which was unfortunately stopped a while back, but good news as the new Series 2 range looks fantastic, and is about to go live on our shop.

There are new characters which I will post about soon in the Shaun The Sheep Toys category, and new toys arriving to us this week, and we can also look forward to adding to the new range in the summer.

To those who arent familiar with Shaun The Sheep, it is a stop-motion animated children’s television series produced by Aardman Animations. Shaun first appeared in Wallace & Gromit’s ‘Close Shave’ animated film. Shaun then had is own show on children’s TV in the UK, and so all the other characters began to appear.

Visit our Shaun The Sheep range to see what all the fuss is about.
