One of the world's most loved monsters since the first book was published in 1999, the Gruffalo's award-winning story continues to entertain children and adults around the world.
When creator Julia Donaldson encountered a Chinese tale about a girl who tricks a hungry tiger into believing she is the queen of the jungle, she found the basis of what would become a modern classic. But the idea didn't fully come to life until Axel Scheffler sketched the monster we all know and love today.
Now you can get all your favourite and your children's favourite characters from the books, The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child, in adorable plush form. Every animal, from Snake to Squirrel, is beautifully hand-crafted in fine plush material; they are perfect for accompanying bedtime reading and for cuddling afterwards. Smaller plushes are available between 5 and 9 inches, but this 16" Gruffalo plush is ideal for a really special gift.
