My girls LOVE cuddly toys (although Big Sis refuses to call them teddies – they’re ‘humans who haven’t growed’).
Sometimes I go to kiss them goodnight and struggle to find them beneath a mountain of googly eyes and fake fur. ‘Are you sure you can actually breathe under there?’ I’ll ask. ‘Of course Mummy,’ a muffled voice will reply from the depths of the teddy mountain.
I pretend to be exasperated by the sheer volume of them all, but in reality, I love it. I know that one day – all too soon for me – they’ll outgrow their stuffed buddies and move on to grown-up things, like makeup and gossiping with their friends, so I want to hold on to these moments for as long as possible.
The other day the girls were thrilled to be sent the range of Tomy Kazoops plush toys. Based on the CBeebies television series, this includes protagonist Monty and his pudgy pet pig, Jimmy Jones. The girls were thrilled to discover that Jimmy Jones actually oinks when you squeeze him – a snorty wheeze that had them both in hysterics (Lil Sis was so enamoured she even took him to school for show and tell, where he was a HUGE hit with all her classmates).
In addition, the range includes all of his imaginary friends – Lily the alien, Otis the warthog and Suzy the dinosaur.
You can buy the range from children’s retailers (demand has been high for Christmas, but you can search Amazon or Ebay). Or… you can cross your fingers and hope you win the entire range, from Mummy’s Little Monkey!
Yep. You read right. I’m giving away every single one of the Tomy Kazoops plush toys that the girls holding – that’s four small characters and one big, squishy Jimmy Jones up for grabs.
