“ Brand: Clinton Cards „
I have seen Boofles around in Clinton cards before, at about £4.99, and was actually purchased one by my boyfriends mother, which was already a lovely gesture in itself. Although the one have does have a keyring attached to the top, I do not use it on my keys, as I fear I will ruin him, so he currently sits at the side of my bed, with my flowers. I have never seen something like Boofle, and think it is an adorable little dog! I love the old fashioned look to the little dog, and the fact he looks like he has been knitted. The dog came with a piece of brown card to it, with a lovely sweet message inside, about the dog being knitted from grandads old cords. The boofle dog is refered to a 'snuggly pup'. So cute! I have also seen bigger versions of Boofle which I am delighted about. Just like 'Me to you' bears, the Boofle range has something for everyong (Best friends, boyfriends/girlfriends, mothers day etc), which I think is fantastic. It is something I have never heard much of before, but I would definitely purchase one as a gift for someone. A lovely concept.
I first saw boofle when I was shopping in Clintons, Ive never been that into Me to You bears, and only have 1 or 2, so when I saw boofle I thought it was so cute!
They do a range of products in the boofle section and this review is on the best friend boofle.
The size of this boofle is roughly 14X10X11, which would be classed as a 'small boofle'.
It is made from polyester fibres, pepplets used as stuffing material. The boofle is soft to cuddle, and in the bottom part of it, you can feel small bean type materials (what you would find in a bean bag) which allows for it to sit up.
Also in the boofle's ears are plastic coated wire stiffeners, which allows you to reshape the two thin long ears into different shapes, only slightly reshape them however.
The outside of the boofle is made from wool and has a little button on the belly.
This boofle comes with a cardboard tag (which most boofles come with). With the headline being 'Hello my name is Boofle.. can I come home with you?xxx'. Inside this tag is the story of the boofle. As at the time of writing the review this is the only boofle product on dooyoo so I will write out the boofle story for you...
'Grandads wooly cardy had seen better days. It was still soft and cosy, but a little bit frayed. There were holes in the elbows, and just one button remained, but, from this, Nanny was sure something else could be made.......So she started to sew on that cold winters night and Boofle was born, much to the childrens delight. Boofle was all that a snugglesome pup should be. Loveable and cuddly and a best friend to you and me. xxx'
Aww I think this is such a cute story, I hope it's true!
This boofle has a woolen tag which says 'Bestest Friend in the whole wide world! xxx' The writing is in white and it has a small button in the top right corner.
The price of this boofle and most other small sized boofles are roughly £8.99. You can buy them from Clintons, they have started doing a boofle section with lots of other products too, and there is also some on the website: www.clintoncards.co.uk
I think this is a very cute cuddly bear and is an alternative and cheaper teddy that the me to you range. One of the bigger boofles are around £20. It has a lovely background story which I think just adds to it. It does have a small button the bear so this would need to be considered if buying for very young children, but the quality is excellent and I cant see it falling off.
A great find.
