The Numberjacks are on their way - in plush little cuddlies! I know I'm a grown man, and I should act like one, but I love these guys almost as much as the grandson does! He's a huge fan of the Numberjacks TV show and already owns several of the DVDs and books. He didn't know they made these cuddly numbers until he received them as a present, and as soon as he saw them his little face just lit up.
I'm not certain but I suspect they may be recently discontinued stock, as I can only find them on places like ebay and the Amazon marketplace. Often they are being sold new in boxes or new with tags, so they can't be that old. Also, the Numberjacks TV show is still going strong on CBeebies, so it's not like these guys are out of date.
What makes these so appealing is that they are so soft and well made. They all have little neat button noses, and well crafted bright eyes. They are all lovely and plush, which makes them surprisingly cuddly considering they're such strange shapes to have a cuddle with. They all look exactly like they do on the television show, which makes them easy for younger fans to recognise, and adds to the appeal for slightly older fans. The show is aimed at 4-6yr olds, but there are some toddlers who love watching this show just for the bright colours and energy.
The grandson loves bouncing these guys around and recreating the Numberjacks TV show with them. He also arranges them on the floor in little sums which I find very sweet! If only they did a plus and an equals sign?! A lovely little cuddly toy for any Numberjacks fan. These are well made, brightly coloured and easy for gripping and carrying around too. Definitely recommended - if you can find them.
