Not that we don’t love Thorke and Arock, but isn’t Twindrak the coolest dragon you’ve ever seen?

Nearly all the standard sizes are in stock, those that aren’t can be pre-ordered until August 29th (delivery would be around 3rd September). The new 80cm and 120cm giant soft toys can also be pre-ordered until August 29th, after which they will be special order, with delivery direct from Nici’s UK distributor, via UPS.

We’d love to know what you think of these new Nici soft toys. Let us know in the comments below.

Nici Donkey

The Nici Donkey soft toy and accessories were added to their collection in June 2013 and forms it’s own range (rather than an addition to the Wild Friends or Forest Friends ranges, for example). The dangling plush soft toy is stocked by Delves Wood Bears in 25cm, 35cm and 50cm sizes, with the 80cm size available by special order (subject to availability).

Nici Donkey

The Nici Donkey is made from super soft grey and white plush with a black mane and tail end.

The range also includes a 15cm dangling donkey, 20cm and 30cm lying donkeys. Much like many of the Nici ranges you can also buy a whole host of accessories, such as wallet, pencil case, mug, magnici and keyring. There are also two shapes of cushions.

If you don’t see the donkey that you want at, have a look on or other Nici stockists.

Welcome to our new Blog

Welcome to our new blog!

After years of hosting our blog on Posterous we have a new blog. We used Posterous, as it could autopost to Facebook, Twitter and other blogs. This let us write once, and it automatically linked out to social sites. Since that service, has been terminated, we’ve been in a bit of limbo. What should we do, but no more. We’ve now got our own new blog right here at, which sits nicely next to our online shop at

So, over the next weeks and months, you’ll find details of new products, stories, offers and newsletters all in one place. To whet your appetite, expect to see some information about new Gund teddy bears and Nici soft toys, as we’ve just received the new Nici Donkey (plus more exciting new lines have been ordered) and soon it’s the Home & Gift Fair at Harrogate, where we’ll see new soft toys too.

While we wanted to get the blog up and running (so our newsletter can be viewed online), the theme is obviously lacking. So, please bear with us, while we get the theme sorted. But at the end of the day it’s the content on these pages that’s important right?

To welcome you to our blog, we’re offering a 10% discount on our website. Simply enter coupon BLOG10 during checkout (don’t forget to click the ‘Update’ button). The coupon is valid once per customer and excludes ‘Sale’ products.

[Update 2nd July 14:06] We’ve just added some of our old back posts.

New Nici Wild Friends roar into Delves Wood Bears

Warning: Illegal string offset 'link' in /home/delveswo/public_html/blog/wp-content/plugins/gallery-linknone/gallery-nolink.php on line 23

If you’re not familiar with Nici soft toys, they’re made from high quality plush and offer a great variety of sizes to suit everyone’s needs. Delves Wood Bears stocks the 25cm, 35cm and 50cm sizes in all four animals. They’re also available in the larger sizes of 80cm and 120cm. Currently we only have 80cm Lion in stock. We could well add these at a later date, but in the meantime, we are able to order in any of the other size/animal combinations – just send us an email or give us a call.

Other characteristics of Nici soft toys are their dangling legs and belly buttons (even on animals that don’t have them – but that just makes them cute).

A new feature of the 35cm versions (of Leopard, Lion and Tiger) is that they roar! (What sound does a Giraffe make?) If you press their tummies, you’ll hear them roar…grrrr! Listen here: [youtube]

Offer of the Week

This week’s great offer of the week, is also from Nici. You can save 10% on this 30cm brown standing horse, this week – just £12.51.

Air Puppy

We’ve just received our first Wild Beach mouse from Air Puppy. Meet Squizzel Mouse! Squizzel is the smallest of the three Wild Beach mice. Quirky, quizzical and slightly eccentric, the mice of Wild Beach ooze Celtic charm with their check tweed lined ears, tummy patches and soles of the feet. A longer-haired fabric called alepine is used for the body. The snout and tummy are made of soft boa. With his inquisitive eyes and extra long whiskers, Squizzel Mouse is sure to raise a smile.

Next week, we’ll have details of new Gund Teddy Bears and some very cool new Gund Dragons. Until then…
