Snoopy Classic Soft Toys @ Little Acorns Toy Shop

Classic Snoopy Retro Toys

Classic Snoopy Retro Toys

Snoopy is a retro cartoon character who started out in the US and quickly become a hit in the UK and probably anywhere else he was shown. Obviously Snoopy was Charlie Browns pet dog from Peanuts written by Charles Schulz, who in many eyes eventually became the main character.   

Little Acorns has a nice range of Snoopy toys in stock, and there are so many available. But we have stuck with the classic range, as it’s the most popular and will more than likely out live me and you.   

We currently have 3 different toys in stock as shown below, and we will be adding to this range at some stage before the summer 2010.   

Medium Original Snoopy Plush:

The Medium Snoopy stands at 21cm and is our largest snoopy soft toy. He is a very high quality toy, and the exact classic look of Snoopy. He comes with Original Snoopy tags, and is a very nice collectable toy or perfect for any fan or child starting out on Charlie Browns adventures with his beagle Snoopy.   

Snoopy In A Retro Gift Bag:

This is our Snoopy beanie toy, and comes sitting in a cute paper bag, with Classic Snoopy all over the bag. Snoopy again comes with a tag, and is a very high quality gift or keep sake.  

Original Snoopy Key-ring 9cm  

Snoopy & Woodstock Keyrings

Last but not least we have the ever-present Snoopy Key-ring, but this time he has his friend Woodstock, and Snoopy himself comes in 2 forms. The one Snoopy key ring has a lovely red hat, and the other Snoopy is wearing a new red jumper, depends what the weather is like I suppose, as to which one you choose.  

Thanks again for reading through this Snoopy post, and once we receive more Snoopy stock I will update this category straight away.  

Have a nice week

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:

Timmy Time Wooden Learning Frame

Timmy Time Wooden Learning Frame

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:

Timmy Time Dominoes

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

elmer the patchwork elephant

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.

Please link to us if you like our blog.
