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.

Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl

Roald Dahl is one of the best memories I have of school, and to this day somebody has only got to mention Roald Dahl and I try and name every book he has written for children. I remember reading Danny the Champion of the World, The Twits, Matilda, George’s Marvellous Medicine, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, Charlie & The Great Glass Elevator and the list goes on. Oh and Fantastic Mr Fox!

Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl

The Enormous Crocodile was one of the younger books we listened too, and again the story is fantastic and the drawings by Quentin Blake are what makes the books so special to anybody who has been brought up on them.

We have 2 lovely versions of the Enormous Crocodile and they are both very high quality, and perfect to read the story with, and in honesty once you have a Roald Dahl toy character, you will instantly remember him when you read any Roald Dahl book.

Small Enormous Crocodile

The Large Enormous Crocodile is 50cm and has a mouth that opens up, for when he is eating the small children obviously. Then the small version is 31cm and is easier to hold for small hands.

We are now hoping that more and more Roald Dahl characters become available, as its such a nice toy for anyone who read his books when they where young, or just starting out reading them now.

Have a nice day

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Toys – New Stock!

Good morning all, I want to introduce a range of toys called The Very Hungry Caterpillar that we have.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Soft Toy

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Soft Toy

The Very Hungry Caterpillar started life in 1969 as a character in books written by Eric Carle. The book has won so many awards its too much to list here. But basically the book has sold more that 30 million copies worldwide, which is about as many toys as we sold last year (cough! cough!).

In our store, we sell a good range of the hungry caterpillar, including a beanie toy, and large plush toy, and a brand new idea in a colour your own very hungry caterpillar toy.

We will at some stage offer the book with the soft toy, but if your a fan of The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, then you will love the quality of these toys, and we can deliver these toys anywhere in the world.

Thanks again

The Snowman – He’s not just for Christmas!

The Snowman Soft Toy is very much wanted at Xmas, then he’s redundant for the rest of the year. Or so we thought!

The Snowman Large & Beanie Soft Toy

The Snowman Soft Toy - He's not just for Christmas!

At Little Acorns Gifts & Collectables head quarters we recieved quite a few emails a long time before Chritsmas and in January, asking if we could get hold of him, or when he is back in stock.

Snowman Bean Toy

The Snowman soft toy itself is such good quality, and he so soft to touch that you cant help not putting him down, so good news we now have the Large Snowman and the Beanie Snowman in stock all year round.

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.

Please link to us if you like our blog.
