“ Brand: The Best Years „
Curly Pig is a well known and well loved character in the Farmyard Tales books published by Usborne and written by Heather Amery. So to find a little Usborne Curly Pig soft toy made my little boy and myself) very pleased.
In the books Curly Pig gets up to all sorts of mischief, from getting stuck and eating too much to getting lost and being naughty. The books that he is a character in come in a variety of formats and so are suitable for a wide age range. Now we have teh soft toy pig, my son can act out those stories and make them come to life!
The soft toy is about 15 cm in length and 12cm high. He has alittle curly tail as is described in the books and is made from a soft pink fabric. If it gets a little mucky, as toys inevitably do when little ones are playing with them, it is suggested that it should only be cleaned on the surface with warm water and soap (so a spin in the washing machine is an adventure Curly won't be going on)! It should then be air dried and brushed to 'restore the appearance of pluch fabric.'
The softtoy appears to be well made and ours has stood teh test of time and man handling of a 21 month old. My son recognises this pig as teh one from his Farmyard Tales stories and so likes to find the pig when he has one of these stories read to him.
There are other animals from teh Farmyward Tales series available to purchase, including Woolly the Sheep, cluck hen, rusty dog, whiskers cat and yellow duck. I have found them for sale on the Amazon website for £4.99 plus postage.
