Gruffalo toys were born when the bestselling children’s book by writer and playwright Julia Donaldson was first published back in 1999. Illustrated by Axel Scheffler, the story tells that of a mouse's walk in the woods and the friends he meets. The book has since sold over 10.5 million copies and The Gruffalo now boasts multiple other merchandise lines which include The Gruffalo soft toys, accessories, plate and cutlery sets as well The Gruffalo puppets and educational games. This delightful range will charm and inspire all members of the family.
The range of Gruffalo toys began life shortly after the original children’s book The Gruffalo was published in 1999. Written by author and playwright Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, this hugely popular kids book tells the story of a mouse walking through the woods and the animals that he encounters on the way. The Gruffalo has sold over 10.5 million copies and also won several awards for its greatness; most notable was the 2009 ‘Best Bedtime Story’ and in 2010 the book came first in a list of favourite children’s books. In 2009 the book was adapted into a short 30 minute film and then into a theatre show which has been taken to Broadway and the West End.
