If you watch Cbeebies then you will be aware of Timmy, the cute little sheep. Timmy stars in his very own show, Timmy Time. According to an article I read, Timmy Time is an animated pre-school children's comedy series created by Aardman Animations. It started broadcasting in the UK on CBeebies on 6 April 2009. The show is a spin off from the Shaun the Sheep animation which itself is a spin off from the Aardman series Wallace & Gromit, which introduced the character of Shaun. I always thought he was very similar to Shaun so I found it interesting to read this and know that he is in fact a spin off.
Timmy is a cute little character and one of my favourites on the CBeebies network. He doesn't speak and just makes little baa noises like a little sheep. Timmy is about 3 to 4 years old and perfect for little kids to associate with I think as he is not able to talk yet but can still communicate and enjoy himself at school. He is actually aimed at pre-school age children as in the series Timmy and his friends have to learn to share, make friends and accept their mistakes. They are supervised by two teachers, Harriet the Heron and Osbourne the Owl. For those of you who know who Justin Fletcher is (Mr Tumble) he actually voices Timmy as well.
Timmy is my little girls favourite as well and so when I saw this cute little Timmy soft toy sheep on the Tesco direct website I had to get him. I purchased him recently with my vouchers that I doubled in and traded so I actually got him "free" even though he costs £20 regularly.
This Timmy is very cute and cuddly and looks exactly like he does on the television. He has a black face, ears, arms and legs and big wide boggly eyes that he blinks with quite a bit. The rest of his coat is white. Timmy is holding onto a cute little teddy bear and I think this makes him look even cuter than he already is. Timmy even speaks like he does on the television as when you press his hand he makes a baa noise. He is called a night night Timmy as he will close his eyes when he lays down so you can play, "putting Timmy to sleep" and watch him close his eyes. I find this is great for suing with your little one at bedtime too to help them go to sleep. Timmy starts snoring when he is asleep which is funny to listen to.
All in all a cute cuddly toy that your child will love if they are a fan of Timmy Time.
My 16 month old has just discovered the delights of watching TV and her most favourite programme is Timmy Time. Timmy Time is the cutest program on Cbeebies, from Aardman the creators of Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep. Timmy is Shauns little cousin and goes to nursery with all his farmyard friends. As Timmy is the main character most of the merchandise is him alone.
As by now everyone we know has seen my baby carrying round a miniture Timmy for the last two months my mum decided to treat her to an extra big version. She bought it from Argos for £13.99 and recieved a free DVD.
I was surpried that it only cost £13.99. I was expecting it to be around the £25 price tag due to it's size, quality and considering other similar products are around that price.
Timmy arrived on a cardboard stand with thick plastic around it. The plastic was so thick my baby could hardly see what it was so a bit of the magic was lost. But that was quickly put right. We took it out and gave it her. Timmy is 32cm tall and very chubby . My baby is quite small so its nearly the same size as her ,so at fisrt she was a bit wary.10 Minutes later and he hasn't left her sight since. Minature Timmy has been demoted.
Timmy's wool on his body and tail is white and wonderfully soft and fluffy. His arms and legs are made from a black synthetic material which is very good at collecting dust so I imagine we'll have to get the clothes brush out soon.
He has lovely long floppy ears, and his nostrils are indented. My daughter like to stick her fingers in there sometimes.
Timmy himself is very simple and plain looking. To remedy this they have given Timmy his teddy bear. This is a minature brown teddy with black beady eyes and a mouth. On each hand he has a cream patch sewn on in true Aardman detail. Timmy holds his teddy in his arms with two small pieces of velcro. It also comes with a plastic tag so it can't be lost during transport that you're supposed to removed. However we have left it on so the teddy can't go missing as that would be a real shame.
The best part of this Toy is that he makes sounds.To start him up you press the small button inside his left paw.When Timmy is sat up and his eyes are open he makes his signature Baa Baah sounds, as if he is talking to you. When he is lying down to go to sleep his eyes close and he makes snoring noises. If you press his hand when hes sleeping he will start to talk in his sleep . This brought on a few giggles. Timmy's only vice is he has no off button. If he is moving all the time he will natter on and on which can be a bit annoying. The only way that he will be quiet is by leaving him alone for on average 30 seconds.
Timmys tail is so big and fluffy that when he is lying down he lies at a strange angle. His eyes and moving eyelids are heavy so it takes a while to get him balanced enough to sit up. If the eyelids are at a certain angle they can look quite sinister. Timmy has pride of place in my daughters cot but he can be played with at any time of the day not just sleeping times.
Timmy is fuelled by 3x 1,5 Volt batteries that are inserted in his back by opening a velcro seam. Because of his size my daughter enjoys dressing him in tiny socks, and more than likely he will be wearing hat and gloves when winter comes.
I'm sure this will be a firm favourite for a long time to come, even when the batteries have run out. This is a lovely toy suitable for boys or girls of any age, allthough its recommended 2+. High quality and well worth £13.99.
I bought the Timmy Time Night Night Timmy toy for my daughter's first birthday. She loves the programme so I thought she would love the merchandise too - and I was right! I got this a little after christmas, so the price had been slashed from £11.97 to £8.97 in Asda.
Timmy is easy to operate. He holds his little brown teddy bear with both hands, attached with Velcro and there's an easy push button in his left paw. When the button is pressed, Timmy will baa! at you. Lie Timmy down, and he will snore. After a while, he will stop but eventually start up again, making him the less than ideal bedtime toy as this could wake a child.
Timmy's different sounds and noises are controlled by the movement of his eyes. At times, this can be quite annoying as any slight movement will set him off. If he is already baa-ing and his eyes move, this will reactivate him and he will stop mid-baa and start again.
My daughter loves playing with the eyes alone, meaning this toy can get quite annoying and I have not yet found a volume control.
Timmy is quite big and very soft, making him the ideal toy.
To turn Timmy off, you press his paw again. Timmy will make his few last baa's and then turn off, again making him a less than ideal bedtime toy.
Overall, Timmy is an absolute brilliant toy for children though it can get annoying for parents!
