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 Jolly Sue and Dean

Nici Jolly Sue and Dean are the latest additions to the Nici Jolly Mah range.

It is a day like any other when Jolly Dean takes off with his prop plane from the runway to fly his rounds over the sheep pastures. When he begins his second round, a bright light suddenly shines into his cockpit and blocks his view for a moment. A glance towards the pasture presents him with the reason for his momentary blindness: a sheep girl with curly cuddly ears, pink socks, and a shining star on her headband. Jolly Dean is immediately taken in. He has THE idea how to catch her attention: He pulls the joystick back … one sharp curve and two loopings later a cloud heart decorates the sky.

Jolly Dean is a dashing pilot with his plush helmet and goggles and woolly collar to keep him warm, as he dazzles Jolly Sue with his fantastic flying skills. Nici Jolly Sue and Dean are available in 35cm sizes.

Why only this size, you may ask? The 35cm size is the most popular in this range and while we can still source the older Jolly Elsa and Jolly Lucy, at highly discounted prices, we’ve found that only the die hard collector of Nici Jolly Mah is going to pay £10 more for the new sheep (Jolly Elsa and Jolly Lucy are £12.90, where Jolly Sue is £22.90 – with her introductory discount).

There are many accessories in the Nici Jolly Sue and Dean range, like mugs, cushions, pencil cases and bags, as well as the full range of sizes: 15cm, 25cm, 35cm, 50cm, 80cm and 120cm. All can be found from other retailers and Amazon.co.uk (affiliate link):

Nici Wild Friends: Crocodile & Rhino

Twice a year, Nici add new soft toys to their Nici Wild Friends range. Earlier this year, we said ‘hello’ to a Giraffe, Leopard, Lion and Tiger. Now we meet Burt the Rhino and Terence the Crocodile. Burt and Terence are best friends. The two good-natured vagabonds always get into trouble. But they are as thick as thieves and save each other’s neck time and again. Terence is a golden boy, a real rascal in every respect, but with his congeniality and intelligence he manages to twist everyone he meets around his little finger. Burt, who is usually relaxed and indulgent, is nevertheless capable of exploding and then tends to beat his head against a stone wall.

Burt the Rhino is available as a dangling soft toy only, while Terence the Crocodile comes in dangling and lying form:

Burt is made from the same plush as the very popular Chumba Elephant and is available from Delves Wood Bears in sizes: 25cm, 35cm and 50cm (from stock); 80cm and 120cm (special order). Terence is available in dangling sizes: 25cm and 35cm (from stock); 50cm available to pre-order until the end of August; 80cm is again special order. The lying sizes are 20cm, 30cm and 50cm and are all available from stock. All are available with an introductory discount of at least 5% off the SRP.

Other Nici Wild Friends accessories, including cushions, slippers and mugs are available on Amazon.co.uk (affiliate link):

New Nici Dragons for 2013

The new Nici Dragons have arrived from Magmamia. Following on from the success of the three dragon brothers from Dragonia (Dracon, Landogar and Iwan), we can now introduce you to the three new Nici dragons.

Firstly there’s Thorke the Green. He’s, er, well…green, with dark grey horns and wings. While Dracon and Landogar were available two styles, which Nici describes as ‘dangling’ (their classic style) and ‘standing’ (lacking floppy legs to create a more vertical ‘standing’ soft toy), Thorke is available in ‘standing’ and ‘sitting’ postures. What you may find confusing is that Thorke’s ‘sitting’ posture is the same as Dracon and Landogar’s ‘standing’ posture, where he ‘sits’ on his hind legs. In the ‘standing’ version, Thorke ‘stands’ on all fours. Time for some product images for you to see what we mean:

So, these new standing soft toys are (effectively) replacing the dangling styles. Not surprising the old standing (new sitting) styles were more popular.

The next of the new Nici Dragons to introduce you to is Arock the Volcano Dragon. Arock is orange with red horns and wings.

Nici Arock 'Sitting' Dragon

Nici Arock 'Standing' Dragon

Nici Arock ‘Standing’ Dragon

Both Thorke (green dragon) and Arock (orange dragon) are available in the following sitting sizes (heights): 20cm, 30cm and 50cm (in stock); 80cm and 120cm (special order – delivered direct from Great Gizmos – the UK distributor of Nici – via UPS); there also some massive 160cm soft toys (again special order), but these are in very short supply. The standing sizes (lengths) are: 30cm, 45cm and 60cm (in stock).

We may have just saved the best until last! Introducing Twindrak, a blue double headed dragon:

Nici Twindrak Double Headed Dragon

Have you ever seen such a cool dragon as Twindrak? Twindrak is available in 3 (stocked) sizes: 40cm, 50cm and 60cm lengths. There is also a massive 180cm version, of which there are only a few available, but can be specially ordered for you.

All these new Nici Dragons are available with an introductory discount of at least 10% off the SRP. With free UK delivery too, you are sure to be getting a great deal when you buy from Delves Wood Bears.

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 DelvesWoodBears.co.uk, have a look on Amazon.co.uk or other Nici stockists.

Keep warm this winter with a Nici Hot Water Bottle

Nici Hot Water Bottles are a variety of 350ml hot water bottles with cute plush cases, that match a number of their popular soft toys. There’s a panda, koala and gorilla from the Nici Wild Friends range, sheep and a goat from the Nici Jolly Mäh range, hedgehog, squirrel, skunk, fox and raccoon from the Nici Forest Friends range, gorgeous bears and a lovely penguin from the Nici Ice Guys range of soft toys.

They’re available from Delves Wood Bears, Amazon and other Nici retailers.

Compare the Meerkat Soft Toys

In the UK, price comparison website comparethemarket.com has been running a long series of adverts (going back a couple of years) involving Meerkats from Meerkovo. The “Simples” and effective adverts have been very popular, in a very competitive market.

Now they’ve introduced Simples Rewards. Buy car, van, home or pet insurance through comparethemarket.com and you can get one of six meerkat soft toys.

While this might be a nice offer, I personally, prefer the Nici Meerkats, as first written about in February on this blog (http://www.softtoys.co/2011/02/nici-meerkat-and-koala-soft-toys/).
