The brand Jellycat started in the UK in 1999 when the designer launched a small and unique collection of baby and childrens toys to the world. Made with luxuriously soft materials and a utilizing a variety of textures and design styles, Jellycat announced itself to the world.
As with many brands a funny story or idea often acts as the starting point when finding the name of a company. Jellycat is no different ! The name was inspired by a young child who loved jellies and cats ! Creating an image of the two together, the childs playfulness inadvertently found the name of the brand that today has developed into a well known and respected toy company sold around the world and loved by babies and children !
What makes Jellycat so special is that they continually look to challenge their designs and ideas creating delightfully soft and cuddly toys of all sizes, shapes and themes. The designer creates toys for all ages from birth upwards and uses an array of different materials, textures and fabrication techniques to propose something for all tastes.
How do you choose a soft toy gift idea for babies or children ? Often we choose items where the style and form pleases us as adults but we should also be aware of the way a toy can stimulate a childrens senses ! The colours of a toy, the feel of the fabric and the size are all important factors. Is it easy to hold for little hands, is it light to carry around all day long ?
Fortunately Jellycat designs toys to suit all tastes. Maybe you are looking for original birth gift toys with poetic patterns and soft colours or you are seeking larger toys for bigger children, you will find something for all ages at French Blossom. One thing does remain constant in all the Jellycat toys and that is the amazingly soft feel of each piece ! It is difficult from an image alone to describe how soft these toys are but we have never felt softer or smoother !
All the toys from the designer go through stringent and rigorous safety tests and conform to the European Safety Standard (EN71 parts 1,2 & 3). Safety is paramount when it comes to toys !
At French Blossom you can discover a range of baby toys, soother blankets, rattles and even musical toys. Rabbits and little sweet mice always seem to be a strong theme for the babies toys while many of the larger toys include cats, lions and most recently we added the wonderful Peanut the Penguin soft toy.
The comfort blankets or soother toys come in a variety of colours and themes. There is a soft cream rabbit smoother, a grey mouse, a cheeky monkey but our personal favourite has to be 'Shiver the Penguin' soother. Vintage in colour and style, the little striped penguin with his bright orange beak holds his favourite cream plush blanket between his wings. This soft toy baby smoother is certain to become a best friend for little ones !
Blossom bunny has to be one of the sweetest and softest toy rabbits you will ever find ! Cream in colour her little ears and feet have a delicate flower pattern print. She has black eyes and a soft pink nose. Blossom bunny loves going on picnics and playing in the fields with her friends.
