Happy New Year!We’re delighted to announce that Gund have introduced a jumbo (29″/73.5cm) version of our top selling Philbin Chocolate. His sitting height is 20″/51cm, because of the way he flops. Massively adorable!
Gund Philbin Chocolate Jumbo
Gund Philbin Chocolate (Jumbo) has an SRP, but we’ve got an introductory discount of 10% – so for a short while, at least, you can get him for £85.50.
We’ve also just taken delivery of our first Valentine’s day product. Meet this lovely dog:
Kisses (Large), is made from beautifully soft light brown plush, with velvety soft brown paw pads and a red velvet heart hanging from his mouth. A great way to send hugs and kisses to the one you love this Valentine’s day. Even better for just £1.50 we can wrap him in one of lovely gift bags.
Gund Kisses (Large)
Gund are releasing more new Valentine’s gifts later this month, so if you see one you fancy elsewhere that we do not have, please let us know and we’ll see if we can get it for you.
There are many more new teddies and soft toys coming soon, so expect to see lots of exciting new products on the website over the coming months.
This week, we received the new Nici Classic Bear and German Shepherd. The Nici teddy is a beautiful light brown cuddly bear. He’s got lovely soft brown fur, with a cream tummy and paws. With such a gorgeous smile, you just want to hug him. He’s available in four sizes – 25cm, 35cm, 50cm and 80cm.
The German Shepherd has beautifully soft dark brown plush on his back, head, ears and muzzle with light brown plush on his arms, legs, tummy, face and ears. He has a velvety soft black collar, black nose and panting pink tongue. Available in 25cm and 35 cm sizes.
In 2011 Gund introduced a new teddy bear called Fuzzy. He was available in two colours – a lovely chocolate, and a nice toffee colour (officially titled beige!?!) They have long floppy arms and legs, a thick wooly plush and a cute offset smile.
In 2012 they have added 6 new Fuzzy soft toys: a bunny, cat, dog, frog, monkey and pig.
While they don’t have the cute smile, there are also three new Sesame Street soft toys, called Take Alongs. There’s an Elmo, Cookie Monster and Big Bird. They have the same kind of plush fur, and long floppy arms and legs. The mouths are flat, black felt-like with big grins.
May be I’ve just got a weird sense of humour? I couldn’t help but laugh the other day at the cinema. The trailer for Chronicle started. It’s a movie about three high school students that make an incredible discovery, leading to their developing uncanny powers beyond their understanding. As they learn to control their abilities and use them to their advantage, their lives start to spin out of control, and their darker sides begin to take over. Between 41-46 seconds into the trailer, they use their powers to levitate a teddy bear and scare a young girl. Chuckle.
During the busy run up to Christmas, I had little time to introduce the latest Gund teddy bear. With just a month left until the Spring Fair at NEC Birmingham, where Gund will introduce their 2012 teddies and soft toys, it would be easy to miss this gorgeous new bear. Meet Rafferty…
Gund Rafferty Teddy Bear
He’s a seriously cute grey bear. He’s made from lovely soft plush, with a light grey face, muzzle and rear paw pads. He’s 35.5cm from head to toe with a sitting height of 30cm. Got to love his expression!
This Sunday (July 17th) sees the start of the 2011 Harrogate Home & Gift Fair. I hope to be able to bring you a whole load of photos of new teddy bears and soft toys, which will hopefully begin to make up from the lack of posts in recent weeks (teach me to decorate all of my house).
