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 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.

Timmy Time Toys at Little Acorns Gifts & Collectables

Good morning, this blog entry is to introduce our current Timmy Time toys range, and to let you know that we will be adding large and small Timmy Time soft toys to the range shortly.

Timmy Time is an off-shot of Shaun The Sheep and is shown on children’s TV channel CBeebies. The Timmy Time theme is being able to share, to play with and make new friends and to be honest and kind. The show does work and has a huge fan base, and this tells in the popularity of the toys themselves.

Our Timmy Time category has 2 very high quality learning items at the moment, these are Timmy Time Wooden Learning Frame as below:

Children are able to learn new words and letters as they play, and the frame is so well made it would easily last the test of time with their younger brothers and sisters growing up too.

The other Timmy Time toy we have is Timmy Time Dominoes:

Children can take turns playing dominoes, and the first one to place their Timmy Time dominoes down is the winner!

A great traditional game with a modern character twist, but the idea is the same, of playing together, taking turns and having a good time doing it.

New Wallace & Gromit Toys

Good morning everyone, todays post is about our new Wallace & Gromit toys.

I will be honest and say that these soft toys are so well made, and they are so nice to look at too, they have plenty of personality and they are perfect for Wallace & Gromit fans.

I will first show you the Beanie toys, they are usually the most popular item and the Wallace & Gromit Beanies are no exception. The beanies are Gromit & Fluffles and brand new out this year.

To compliment the beanies, we have plush Gromit & Fluffles in a box, and these are so lovely they would look perfect even as toy furniture in a bedroom or tv room.

Well thats about it I suppose, I would get into who Wallace & Gromit are, but they have been around a long time now, and I’m sure the majority of us know about them so the pics above will be better than words me thinks.

Have a good day, lots of love Amanda

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.
