Large Gruffalo £13.20 @ WH Smith
They're hideous with orange eyes, terrible tusks, and turned out knees and poisonous warts. But kids love them. Gruffalo's that is. I think I could recite both the Gruffalo and the Gruffalo's Child from memory. This large 16" soft toy version of the Gruffalo is available at the moment at WH Smith for £13.50.
This is a saving of 60% on the RRP of £32.99, however WH Smith has had it on sale previously for £14.50. This large Gruffalo soft toy doesn't seem to be on sale anywhere else. The next cheapest I could find it was £17.99 at Amazon, so this looks like a fairly solid bargain.
Delivery is free if you can collect at a store, or if you spend over £15 (so you may want to throw in a magazine or something else you would buy anyway to take the total up). The toy sits at 16" high. The manufacturer's recommended age is 3 years and upwards.
Of the eleven customer reviews on Amazon, 9 give it a four or five star rating. One reviewer comments that "this is a perfect size for my kids and looks more like the gruffalo should." One reviewer found the stitching poor on the Gruffalo they bought, and the other reviewer who gave it three stars found that after watching the video her son was too scared of the Gruffalo to play with it!
