Stripy Horse Soft Toy – Perfect Book Companion!

Stripy Horse Soft Toy

Stripy Horse Soft Toy

Stripy Horse Soft Toy is a very famous character from books written by Jim Helmore and illustrated by Karen Wall. 

He is a firm favourite with school children, as we have sold a lot of these toys directly to teachers and have also sent bulk orders to schools around the UK.

The feedback we have had has been great, and it mostly involves the Stripy Horse toy helping the children build up the character when reading the brilliant books.

He once again is a very high quality toy, and also very popular, as shown by us currently being out of stock of them but we are due a few boxes soon, and once we have we will let you all know straight away. We are also looking into making the book available from our store soon, and this will be a fantastic opportunity for moms to buy the book and the toy together for bed time reading with their young children.

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

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

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.

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.
