Young Gruffalo fans will love this large soft toy. It still has the terrible tusks and terrible claws but they’re a bit softer. And the poisonous wart at the end of his nose is quite harmless. but the tongue's still black and the eyes orange!

Editor's Notes

Fast becoming a children’s classic, the Gruffalo’s grizzly appearance has been an instant hit with little readers. Written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, the book has been translated into numerous languages and won notable literary prizes.

The story follows a mouse as he ventures into the woods and encounters various animals who rather plate him up as a meal than befriend him. In an attempt to escape being eaten, the mouse invents a monster with frightening features that he soon comes face to face with.

Based on a traditional Chinese story, Donaldson saw the potential to adapt the tale and created the Gruffalo as an educational picture book. Highly enjoyable to read out loud, the Gruffalo has become children’s favourite scary, but lovable character.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic for a gruffalo fan The picture on the JL site really doesn't do this toy justice, it is excellent quality and our 2 year old loves it. 05 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute and Cuddly I purchased this for my 1st Grandchild as my son has viewed it many times in store. Books bought to accompy it for Christmas. 16 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Much loved toy I had already purchased the smaller version of the Gruffalo for my three year old grandson's birthday. It was not long out of the wrapping paper before my six year old granddaugter claimed it and whisked it away to her bedroom. It took my daughter two days to retreve it (it was hidden in the lightshade) and has now been returned to it's rightful owner. I purchased the large version as a Christmas gift for my grandaughter and she was absolutely thrilled. It is a constant companion at home and even gets taken on sleep-overs. Obviously a very appealing character and quality soft toy. 15 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase excellent customer service. In spreading out my Christmas shopping over the months before Christmas I required the Gruffalo. Although it was not in stock a member of the Cheadle toy branch helped me use the INSTORE computer for collection the very next day. The product is well made and fully fits the books description. I know it will make someone very happy. 12 November 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent cuddly toy. I got this for my daughters 4th birthday. She loves it, as do her brother and sister. It is of excellent quality and would heartily recommend it for any fan of the Gruffalo. 16 September 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nicely made Great toy - is what it says and was a present that was well received. I had expected it to be a tad larger but overall not disappointed. 16 August 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Poor toy The customer service in the toy department was absolutely excellent. The member of staff could not do enough. She went to find the product that was not on display and she helped me through the online ordering. The Gruffalo has some stitching coming apart already and the 2years old has only had it a week. 26 July 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's a Gruffalo!! I bought this as a gift for my Son's 1st/4th (he's a leap year baby) birthday and he absolutely loves it. He's never been attached to any soft toys but snuggles up to his "BIG GRUFFALO" every night. It's really detailed and is great quality, soft and cuddly. 07 April 2012
