      Thanks for Reading :)

      Cbeebies has a children's tv program called In The Night Garden and my nephew loves watching it whenever it is on, we even record it so he can watch it later he loves it that much. He loves most of the funny cute characters on the show but Iggle Piggle is one of his favourite characters, so therefore I thought it would love the Iggle Piggle cuddly toy for his 1st birthday. PRICE = = = = I remember purchasing this from Amazon for around £6, which is a bit pricey for a small cuddly toy, however if it brings as much comfort and joy to your little one as it did my nephew then I would say its worth the price tag. Plus I remember seeing my little cousins having a similar Iggle Piggle cuddly toy and saw how much joy it would bring them, so I couldn't really resist buying this for my little In The Night Garden fanatic! DESIGN = = = = = The Iggle piggle cuddly toy is small in size and would estimate it being around 17cm in height. It has a light blue body and red coloured soles. The cuddly toy carries around his signature red blanket in his left hand. Iggle Piggle has red plat like hair at the top of his head, but only a few strands. I would say that the soft toy does really well to match the TV appearance of the Iggle Piggle character and is pretty much identical. The soft toy is made from nice soft cuddly material which is what you would expect from a cuddly toy. EXPERIENCE = = = = = = = My nephew loves his Iggle Piggle, I remember he used to sleep with it when he was younger and carry it around with him, which was very cute to watch! The soft material made it very comforting for him, so when ever he was sleepy or a little up set he used to want Iggle Piggle with him. The size of the cuddly toy is small and therefore ideal for my nephew as he was one year old when I got it him. It would fit securely in his arms whenever he wanted cuddles or comfort, and light weight so he can easily carry it around with him. The small red blanket is attached to the left hand and is stuck on, so you don't need to worry about it falling off or getting lost. I remember I nephew used to use it whenever he had a bit of cold and start rubbing his nose on it, which I know was not ideal! But its nice and soft and easy to wipe clean, so I wasn't at all worried about that. My nephew loved it when he was one years old, however now he is just over 2 and a half and so he is not as attached to it as he was, and instead has moved his interest to a cuddly duck! But it definitely gave him a good year of comfort and enjoyment so it was worth the price. CONCLUSION = = = = = = = Would I recommend this item? Yes I would, although a little pricey for a small cuddly toy it is worth it. Plus its cute to watch the little one have a little Iggle Piggle buddy!

      I bought this Iggle piggle a couple of years ago now, for my now ex boyfriends daughter, she seemed to love in the night garden, and really could not think of what to buy her, so when I saw this 12 inch version of Iggle piggle I decided that I would buy her this. The Iggle Piggle looks just like he does on the in the night garden show, and he comes with his little red blanket that he always takes everywhere with him. The only thing with the red blanket is that its attached with velcro, so it does quite easily come on, although you can sew it on yourself if you prefer. The Iggle piggle is really soft to touch and is rammed full of stuffing, so its easily squeezed also. The girl who I bought it for was only 18 months old, and she adored it. She used to take it everywhere she went with her. The only thing I found that after a few months the Iggle piggle material started to bobble, like your jumpers do when they have been over washed, or over used. The thing is I never actually washed this, so it was quite disappointing. Even with this it was still used a lot, its not a toy that does any thing spectacular it is just like a teddy, but its the fact that its iggle piggle that impresses most toddlers. I would not say its recommended for older children, as it is a toddlers program that the character comes from, but for Sophie who was 18 months old she loved it. I would recommend buying this but beware that the material bobbles and the blanket comes off too easily, but that can be sorted by sewing it on.

      A great character toy that is perfect for little hands.

      I've mentioned on here before that my 2 year old son is currently obsessed with the show In the Night Garden. We have sourced quite a few toys for him as it is very hard to get anything decent that does not cost the earth for any of the characters from the show. Our mini plush Iggle Piggle is 6 years old now as he was originally bought for my daughter. Well after a good wash he has got a second wind and is being played with again. Background Not everyone will be familiar with the show In the Night Garden so a brief synopsis may be needed. In the Night Garden is a BBC children's show that is only shown in the Bedtime Hour (show is currently on at 6:20pm every night). It is aimed at toddlers (1-3 years of age I would say but officially it's till 5 years old). The programme features several characters who live in a magical land between dreams (you can only go there when you are going to sleep). You are taken to the magical land by Iggle Piggle on his boat and then the adventure begins. The main characters are Iggle Piggle, Upsy Daisy, Makka Pakka and The Tombliboos. They don't really speak but have specific repeated noises of sounds (although Upsy Daisy does say a few words). The actual toy - mini plush Iggle Piggle As the title suggests this is the 'mini' version of Iggle Piggle. He is 7 inches tall. Iggle Piggle is well stuffed and actually very squishy! He is very soft and perfect for little hands. In his hands he has his red fleecy blanket. The version that we have has the blanket stitched onto his hand and despite many tried by my children it has not come off! Iggle Piggle is made from a soft, fleecy fabric. His feet are made from a red silky fabric. It does say that the toy is from 18+ months but my son has been playing with him since he was about a year old with no detrimental affects. He is very well made and there are no seams that are overly visible. His eyes are stitched so there is no issue of them popping off. Overall the toy is very well made and I would say of quite a high quality. The best thing about this Iggle Piggle is that despite saying that it should only be wiped clean I have run him through the washing machine on a normal 40 degree wash and he still looks as good as new. I have seen mini Iggle Piggle retail at many prices. However, I paid about £3.99 for ours but that was 6 years ago. The Toy in Play As I have mentioned my son does love In the Night Garden. Despite the fact that this is only a cuddly toy he does find him quite entertaining. He puts Iggle Piggle in his toy buggy and wheels him around, he makes him play with the other characters, he comes to bed with him and because he is quite small he carries him around or puts him into his backpack. Conclusion I would recommend this toy for younger children as it is easy for them to hold him. He is very soft and cuddly. As the blanket is secure I have no worries that it will be lost. The character is a realistic version of the one on the show so is very easily recognisable. Iggle Piggle is a lovely addition to any child's toy collection especially if they also love the show.

      Good quality Iggle Piggle soft plush, lovely for little ones

      This Igglepiggle mini soft toy is based on the main character in the tv programme In the Night Garden which is shown on the CBeebies channel as part of their bedtime hour. It was the first programme that my twins actually started to take an interest in, being aimed at babies and toddlers the night garden is a place a child dreams about as they fall asleep. As my girls really enjoyed this programme I was pleased when one of them was given this Igglepiggle as a first birthday present. About Iggle Piggle This Igglepiggle toy is approximately 15cm making it a nice size for toddlers to hold and carry round, neither of my girls have taken to their larger soft toys much preferring the smaller ones. Made by Hasbro this toy is well made and ours still looks in really good condition despite having been through the washing machine and tumble dryer. The label does advise hand wash only but he has been fine at low temperatures. Igglepiggle always carries a red blanket around and it features in many of the Night Garden stories. This toy Igglepiggle has a velcro square on his hand and on the blanket which means it can get separated allowing you to recreate the story of Igglepiggle losing his blanket. Other characters from the series are available and we have a couple more which increases the amount of fun we can have. When Igglepiggle first appears in the programme he sings his song Yes, my name is Igglepiggle, Igglepiggle-wiggle-niggle-diggle! Yes, my name is Igglepiggle, Igglepiggle-niggle-wiggle-woo! my girls love this soft toy dancing around as I sing the song. Price and availability I'm not sure how much was paid for this toy as it was a gift but it is currently (November 2012) £5 on Amazon. I would be happy to pay that for this soft toy. Would I recommend? Yes, if your baby/toddler likes In the Night Garden then you really can't go wrong in getting them their own Igglepiggle. It hasn't been a firm favourite but it has remained popular for the last year or so and normally comes out when I read them their In the Night Garden books which they love.

      iggle piggle soft toy

      My daughter turned 3 last month and got lots of lovely new toys. She is a fan of In the night garden and watches it on Cbeebies every evening which means it's bedtime. For anyone who hasn't seen In the night garden: ============================== In the night garden is a very odd children's programme aired on the BBC children's channel Cbeebies and BBC 2 in the morning. As an adult I find it very disturbing to watch. Whoever writes the story lines and characters must be high on drugs. Upsy Daisy has a bed which follows her around, Iggle Piggle is a blue "thing" with a blanket and Makka Pakka walks around pushing a scooter and washes the other characters with his sponge and soap.....yes, washes them. Iggle Piggle plush doll: ========================= This soft toy is a replica of the character on the programme. It looks very similar to him(as some doll looks rubbish and nothing like the character) and they have done well to get the resemblance right. I'm not sure where this was from or how much it was purchased for as it was a gift (along with Upsy Daisy and makka pakka). I am not such a fan of these dolls. They are quite creepy to me, but for children, they love them. Hollie started watching In the night garden when she was about 6 months old. She loved the bright colours and the characters wondering around the garden. Her favourite character has to be Iggle Piggle. He's the main character in the programme and at the beginning get's into his sail boat at night, lays down and puts his blanket on himself. He sits down like the others do which is good for when she is watching the programme on the TV and she get line them all up next to her whilst the characters are coming up on the screen. She tends to like to hold each one when she sees them come up on the TV and act out what they are doing which is great to watch and she is learning well too. Iggle Piggle has some sort of balls or beads sewn into his bum (excuse the terrible description there) which helps aid his sitting up. The sewing is much better on this than with Upsy Daisy was and I cannot fault it as a toy. I don't know how much was paid for this, but anywhere up to £8 I would find acceptable given their size and that it is a character toy. I give it 4/5 as there is barely anything to fault except it slightly creeps me out to find in my bed at night when Hollie has left it there. Thanks for reading Helen190390

      Cute but not number one in our household

      This is a review of Iggle Piggle (mini) from the TV show In the Night Garden (ITNG). I vowed never to buy this sort of item when I was pregnant with my daughter but I soon caved in knowing how much she loved the programme. Price I bought the mini Iggle Piggle from Sainsburys for around the £7 mark. In hindsight this was quite a lot of money for the size of toy but it was one of her presents for her first birthday and I liked the look of the toy. Buying At the till, my daughter wouldn't even let go of the toy she was so much in love with it. The checkout assistant skilfully scanned and de tagged the toy for us so it became a slightly early birthday present! Description The toy is made of a soft fleece material and is bright red and blue, an identical version of the one we can see on the telly. Iggle Piggle has a red blanket too which if you are a fan of the show, you will know is actually the sail for his boat too. Shortcomings The one failing of this toy is that the blanket / sail is attached by a tiny square of Velcro so our toy and sail immediately became detached and I could see us losing it so I put a small stitch in to make sure the two stayed together. The toy is also quite small so I am reluctant to take it out and about with us as my daughter is becoming a bit of a 'flinger' unfortunately so I think we'd quickly lose it. Plus points The toy is soft and nice to cuddle, the blanket's a great feature that most young children will love to stroke too. Whilst I had misgivings about taking the toy out and about, the size of it is good for fitting in a bag without taking up too much room so if we were visiting friends I would take this with us. In play Since getting home with the new Iggle Piggle toy my daughter has virtually ignored it! She really isn't that bothered about it despite loving it to death in the supermarket. I keep hoping that she will become more interested in it eventually but to be honest, it hasn't been that great a buy. Final word My daughter loves the stone-like character on ITNG called Macca Pacca so perhaps I should have bought this one instead. I chose Iggle Piggle as he was bright and cheerful and came with the blanket / sail feature. He is nice and soft though and I'd gamble on him being machine washable. These toys come in larger sizes as part of the merchandising range and I think a bigger one would have more appeal with my daughter. It is well made and a nice toy but clearly isn't going to be her number one choice.

        A nice little toy for the avid ITNG fan

        My daughter loves In the Night Garden. For those of you that haven't seen it In the Night Garden is a childrens TV programme which is based in a magical place between being awake and asleep. The programme features several toys one of them being Iggle Piggle. Iggle Piggle is based on a childrens teddy bear. I bought my Iggle Piggle in Tesco for £4.99. I would say he is about 5 inches tall. He is made from a blue fleecy material. His facial details are sewn on. He also has red hair made from felt as well as red feet and finally a red fleecy blanket. The blanket can be detatched as it is held in place by velcro. His body is squishy and soft, he feels like he is filled with the stuffing you get in bigger bears and toys. The toy advises that it is suitable for 36 months on. I can't see why myself as there isn't anything on there that would pose a risk to a younger child and ITNG is aimed at younger children. My daughter loves this little toy, as she is only little it is ideal for her small hands. She likes to stroke his fleecy blanket as it has a really nice texture. Iggle Piggle has been on many adventures with us and like most children my daughter loves to occasionally throw things out of her buggy. The instructions advise you to sponge clean only, however as he was looking a little dirty I put him in the washing machine on a cool wash. He actually came out really well. He looked as good as new, I even put him in the tumble drier again on a cool heat and he turned out fine. I would definately recommend this for younger children as he is the perfect size for little hands. Even though these are a little expensive for what they are if you have a child who is an INTG fan it will get lots of cuddles and love.

          A favourite toy to snuggle up to at bedtime for any young In the Night Garden Fan!

          If you're looking for a toy that's small enough for your 1-2 year old to snuggle up to at bedtime with the safe knowledge that it's not big enough to smother them, this is your toy. This is especially so if they actually KNOW the television programme that it comes from ' In the Night Garden' . Also suitable for any older fan of In the Night Garden. In the night garden is todays childrens favourite television programme for pre-schoolers. My son has recently become a fan. He's 23 months. Back in the day when my teenagers were little, they were fans of Teletubbies, and this programme is fairly similar. It's shown on Cbeebies and features 3 main charectors ' Iggle Piggle' (light blue in colour with red feet, hair and blankie), ' Upsy Daisy' (ragdoll girly features) and Makka Pakka (brown in colour). Browsing Tesco recently on the search for something to entertain my son for 10 mins whilst finishing the shopping, we came across the In the Night Garden charectors. I was looking for something fairly cheap in price, and these were just £5.69. I couldn't resist picking up Iggle Piggle and waving him around infront of my sons face like the mummy fruitloop I am. If your child is a fan, you're bound to get a huge beam of a smile once as they recognise the charector from the TV. I would say that it's the fact that they recognise it from the TV that brings out the smiles. I think if your child isn't aware of the charector, there may not be as huge a smile, but thats not necessarily so. This was a big success as my son actually clung onto it for dear life, instead of lobbing it on the floor, which is what he does on so many occasions when showing him something. A winner from the start! A must have like I say if your child knows the programme. This charector is soft and plush with red felt hair and fabric feet to match. He has a little velcro patch on his left hand which his blankie attaches to. This has stayed on for a fair while but just ercently has since been lost to the toy box. I would definately advise that if your child takes this to bed, please do remove the blankie, because if your child is anything like mine , he's in the habit of trying to stuff things in his mouth. Just something to be aware of. Does your child have a blankie? If so, he will probably recognise that so does Iggle which is lovely to see. My son stands smiling with his blankie and picks up his iggle piggle ready for bed, clinging onto them both as we walk upstairs. The fab thing about this toy is its made for small hands and tucks nicely under little ones arms! It's got no worries of overpowering them once asleep and no risk of them waking up with it covering their faces etc. Iggle is washable too. We've only had to wash him once and he came out in fab condition apart from a tiny bit of fluff around his red blankie. That was easily removed by picking it off though and wasn't at all fiddly. He dried outside quickly in my sons pram, much to the amusement of him. Be aware that when you've bought the first charector, you'll probably be drawn to completing the collection. Upsy Daisy and Makka Pakka are other regular visitors to my sons cot. Cute factor? most definately!

            Good value and quality for money.

            My grandson like lots of other young children love the programme In The Night Garden and he loves to watch it for hours and I bought him a few toys in this range for him to play with when he comes to visit me or stay over but when I gave him this toy he would not put it down and took it home with him lol, and he often does that and the intention of buying him some toys is for them to stay at my home so I can build up a collection for him but he has other ideas lol and I bought them for him so he can take them home too lol and so I had to go back and buy another one lol. This toy is the Iggle Piggle which is one of the characters and it is only small and it is him in a sitting position and he is very soft, he has a kind of soft fleece material and he measures approximately 4 inches and he has a red detachable blanket that is fastened by a Velcro to stay in place, he can easily carry it around with him and he takes it everywhere with him at the moment and he adores it, it is his favourite character. There are no parts that are not safe for a young child with this soft mini toy, it is ideal for placing in a pram or cot and my grandson holds it in his car seat. I bought this toy from Toys R Us and it was reduced at the time and was only around £3 which was a bargain in my opinion and I bought him a few more of the same range on special offer as it made sense to buy them at that price instead of the usual prices but the prices are quite reasonable even at the higher ones for this toy as some other ones can be way higher. I clean this toy with a little soap from a bar of soap on a damp cloth to freshen it up a little as these kind of soft toys do tend to get a little dirty and I did not want to ruin it for him and it cleans quite well doing it that way and it soon dries. I think these are idea gifts and stocking fillers for Christmas time for the little ones and for anyone in the family who you need to buy for and if you have a large family and have lots of gifts to buy, these are ideal in my opinion for a good toy. This is a very good quality toy and an excellent price and my grandson absolutely loves it and the feel of it nice and soft and I recommend it for anyone to buy for a their little ones or as a gift as it is so cute. I highly recommend this toy for keeping the children entertained and I also liked it too and found myself talking to it with my grandson lol. I give it 5 stars. Thank you for reading my review.

              good quality

              I bought this soft toy a couple of weeks ago as I have been watching the programme with my grandaughter, who thinks they are all really cute, personally I think they should speak real words so you can understand what they are on about but hey its a kid thing, so finding the toy on Amazon for £2.99 I thought I'd surprise her when she came to visit. The toy is made of a soft fleece type material and my grandaughter instantly took to it saying it was nice and cuddly. The toy is sitting down and clutching a blanket which is attached by velcro, my grandaughter especially loved this as she used to have a cutchy blanket as she called it, when she was smaller and it took us a while to get it off her. So when she saw Iggle Piggle with one she was delighted. This toy isn't suitable for babies and is recommended for children over 18 mths old. It is a nice coloured toy quite cute and eye catching. My grandaughter takes it to bed with her so its definately had its value for money factor well and truely used. It is quite durable as it has been swung around by its leg, thrown around the room and taken outside to be played with as well as been slept with, been in the paddling pool and been gardening which made it a little dirty. Putting it on a low wash seemed to do the trick of cleaning it as I wrapped it in a towel to put in the washing machine and it survived as it does say on the item not machine washable. Still grandma's know these little tricks. The toy is a great idea for a child but I think the blanket isn't a good assessory, I'm not sure how long the blanket will survive as I'm sure its going to get lost as we had had to search for it a few times already, still its a novelty toy and looks good. If your looking for a gift idea for a child this one is suitable for boys and girls as its colour tones of light blue, red and white are for both. It has no sharp pieces or edges and is well made. its a well known character from the books and television and children love the idea that a character has come to life. I'm happy with my purchase as it only cost a few pounds, so if it gets lost or discarded for a new toy then it hasn't broken the bank.

              Great for kids to play with and hold

              My son loves In the Night Garden TV show and watches it whenever it's on and sits for ages transfixed to the screen. So when he was bought this plush toy of Iggle Piggle at Christmas I thought that he would enjoy it and he does. Iggle Pigle is one of the main characters in the children's TV show. The toy itself is identical to the character you see on the television and is blue and carries a red blanket around with him wherever he goes. The blanket is stiched to his palm so it will not get lost. The nice thing about this toy is that it is very soft and therefore friendly for babies from an early age. I don't think it really matters whether your child likes In the Night Garden or not as this toy is small and cute and I know my son carries it everywhere at the moment which is great. I have seen these for under £3 on Amazon so pretty cheap to be honest with you if you shop around. I think the only problem we could have and other parents could have is that if you son or daughter gets attached to this toy it will be hard to prise it away from them. Howver, at the cost and value for money this is a great little toy and I'm sure if you child loves the TV show then they will love this toy too. It is a great stocking filler at Christmas or birthday present idea.

              Recommended for little Iggle Piggle Fans.

              I bought In The Night Garden's Iggle Piggle for my nephew this last Christmas. He is a very avid Iggle Piggle fan and I knew this would be the just the thing for him - and I was right because he hasn't left it alone since! It cost me £4.75 from Amazon, although I think its come down in price since this. The mini Iggle Piggle is fairly small but it is an ideal size for a small child (My nephew is 2 years old). Iggle Piggle is sitting, and in this sitting position he is about 15 cms tall. He looks very like his TV adaptation and so even avid fans will not notice any significant differences between the two. He is made of very soft material which is very fleecy and nice to snuggle into. There is no rough edges or loose bits to the toy and so he seems perfectly safe to leave with my nephew without any supervision. The only bit which is detachable is the red cloth that Iggle Piggle carries around with him. This is attached to him by velcro - and I have to admit that my nephew lost this within a few weeks of having the toy. Although the instructions say that this is not machine washable, Iggle Piggle has been washed several times in the washing machine (on a low heat) and doesn't look any the worse for wear for it. When a toddler has a much loved toy that is made from material it is important that it can be washed as it tends to get grubby very quickly! I would recommend this toy as a little present to anyone who wants to buy a present for a child who is a fan of In The Night Garden. Its inexpensive and durable and even though it doesn't "do" anything, its been a great comfort to my nephew at times. He has nicknamed it "Iggle Piggle Face" - I don't know where he got the fact bit from!

              Nice and soft and a good size for little hands to grasp

              Yes his name is Iggle Piggle, but apart from being a perfect facsimile in miniature fleece fabric of the kids character (bearing the same name) who features on the CBeebies programme 'In the Night Garden' - I have to say that in all honesty, Mini Plush Iggle Piggle doesn't actually do a heck of a lot. It's quite a nice toy admittedly and the quality is good. Stands (or in this case sits) about five inches high. It's made from pale blue and red soft, synthetic fabric, and comes with a velcro-tabbed red blanket comforter (actually the sail of Iggle Piggle the TV character's boat) as seen on 'In the Night Garden'. The eyes are sewn on rather than being detachable buttons, which makes this a toy suitable for younger children. It's soft and a nice size for little hands to clutch and grab hold of - and all the figures from this range are pliable enough for their arms / heads to be 'waggle-able' - which adds to their kid-appeal. My main issue with this range of toys when it first appeared in the shops was the price: 'In the Night Garden' was when it first came out about three years ago fantastically appealing to children and a great TV success - the toys derived from it were everywhere, including your local branch of Tescos, and each one sold for upwards of £5. Given that there six major characters all available in this range - and it did seem to be tacitly marketed as a 'collect the whole cast of the TV series' - purchasing the whole lot would've set you back at least £30 which I thought was a bit much. Happily (on some levels) my older child lost interest in 'In the Night Gardem' quite quickly - in much less than a year of her first becoming an ITNG-fanatic - which is understandable, as all the episodes are almost exactly the same and don't hold much appeal for a growing child. So it was possible for us to stop 'collecting' these toys about three or four figures in. My seven month old baby has just 'discovered' the show however and is showing a real interest in these toys - we've currently got one of the Tombliboos, and the Iggle Piggle and Upsy Daisy again, all car boot purchases made by my mother for pennies this time round - (which was lucky as I'd already stock-cleared the ones we bought new for my daughter as they were no longer her favourite toys). I see these things sell for £2.40 on Amazon at the moment which is much more like it. They're a good buy at that price.

                I think Iggle Piggle will always be my granddaughter's favourite.

                I must admit, I thought the days of buying In the Night Garden merchandise was over as my three year old granddaughter progressed through Peppa Pig and now enjoyed watching The Adventures of Tigger and Pooh on Playhouse Disney. However, it was her birthday on Tuesday and on the actual day I saw a selection of mini In the Night Garden character toys for a very low £1.99 each so decided to revert her back to babyhood one last time. Iggle Piggle has always been her favourite character and she adores this sweet little toy, I had worried it would be somewhat of an anti-climax considering she owns most of the talking characters but it has become an instant hit with her taking it to bed and carrying the toy to the shops. The toy is roughly six inches high and is in a sitting position, to me this makes far more sense than creating him to stand up as plush toys invariably fall over and at least Iggle Piggle will side independently without having to be propped up against a table leg or wall. He is made of a beautifully soft fleece fabric which looks to be easy to surface clean, in fact within minutes of opening her presents my granddaughter dripped ice cream on Iggle Piggle and it was very straight forward to wipe him clean again. He is not machine washable, although frankly I cannot see why as I have washed many plush toys made from the same fabric and there has never been a problem. The representation of Iggle Piggle compared to how he looks on the television programme is excellent in my opinion. He is the correct shades of blue and his facial expression is instantly recognisable; with sweet lopsided smile and button nose, who can fail to love Iggle Piggle?! On Iggle Piggles back there is a large plastic clip, this is a fantastic addition as it makes it more suitable as a pram toy. A toy this size is always a risk when you take it out, the worry of losing it often outweighing the fun of allowing your little one to bring along their favourite small toy. However, this can be safely clipped to buggy straps or even attached to your changing bag should your child suddenly lose interest in keeping Iggle Piggle safe en route. My only complaint regarding this toy is the fact that, once again, Hasbro have seen fit to attach Iggle Piggles blanket with velcro. It's bizarre, and a design error that has encompassed the entire range of Iggle Piggle toys. This blanket is even smaller than on the standard toys so will inevitably be quickly lost, I recommend a couple of stitches to attach the blanket to Iggle Piggle's hand - which is what I did as soon as I noticed the dreaded velcro attachment. I certainly recommend this mini Iggle Piggle to any small In the Night Garden fans, his small size is more easily taken out and about yet he has all the attraction of the larger plush toys in the range.

                  Hasbro In The Night Garden Mini Plush Iggle Piggle: If you have read my Teenage Pregnancy article, you will have gathered that I have a little nephew. If not, well I have a 10 month old nephew named Reegan who belongs to my twin sister! In The Night Garden is a program on Cbeebies every day and lots of babies, toddlers and small children go absolutely mad for it. Whenever I go into Tesco or another supermarket, I am always obliged to see if they have any new toys from In The Night Garden. My boyfriend's little brother also goes mad for this, but it is my Nephew who has this cuddly toy. So, this is a miniature version of Iggle Piggle. As you can see from the above image, he follows a red and blue theme and the red blanket you can see is actually stitched onto his palm which is useful as it does not get lost. The texture of this is very soft and baby friendly and it suits those who really like the program or those who just love cuddles. I have seen this on Amazon and also in Tesco and baring in mind it is only small, it is on sale for around £5.00. This is all worth it if you have small children as it may give you a little bit of 'me' time to relax! I love the way this is small and cute I think it is brilliant. The only problem is that my nephew will scream if he does not have this near him, so he has become a little bit attached to it now, at least I know there are places that do still sell them! Great product- this is recommended! Holly x
