This is something of a departure for us. We have never particularly gone in for plush toys before, apart from a few Ty Beanies way back. However as a former primary teacher, the use of puppets was one of my stock in trades. I always found them a great way to get younger children engaged, whatever the topic.
And so it was when of our reps offered us this range of luxury plush hand puppets we decided to take to take the plunge. The clincher was quality; they really are lovely to the touch. Also the 20 different models available offer a wealth of choice, and the potential to make up the dramatis personae of any drama you might wish to present with them.
The puppets are produced by Trudi of Italy, already a well known name in the world of plush toys. If these puppets do as well as we hope, then you might well see more of Trudi’s range stocked by Comaco in the near future! Continue reading

There’s obviously no need to tell you about the huge hype which surrounded the release of Star Wars The Force Awakens in late 2015. As far I could tell 40 somethings, whose childhoods were indelibly coloured by the original three films seemed to be at least as enthusiastic as anyone from the younger generations.
Needless to say a whole slew of toys and other tie in products have been released. The more cynical amongst us might even wonder if potential merchandising sales were not a major factor behind the new films being produced at all. Having said that The Force Awakens had good reviews and certainly met with broad approval from my family (despite some rather obvious retreading of A New Hope).
Leaving aside the film review, we got some Hasbro Star Wars toys in last November, and our range has been supplemented in trickles ever since. Basically we now have 12″ figures, 12″ figure and vehicle sets, 3.75″ figures and light sabres. Judging by sales, Kylo Ren seems to be the character everyone wants – small Kylo Ren figures and Kylo Ren light sabres all sold out within days of getting them in.
12″ Figures and vehicle sets:

Comaco Toys have stocked Papo Dinosaur Figures for a couple of years, but now we are very pleased to add German designer Schleich’s equally detailed models to our range. We have 6 prehistoric creatures to begin with, all hand painted and beautifully realised. At the larger end there is of course our old favourite Tyrannosaurus Rex, plus the even mightier Giganotosaurus. A couple other fearsome two legged predators come in at a slightly smaller scale – Carnotaurus with his Satanic horns – and another famous name, Allosaurus. All of these feature opening jaws. We also have winged dinosaurs represented by Anhanguera. This Terrapod has a particularly vicious looking set of teeth, again with an opening jaw. Last but not least there is a very well armoured herbivore – Kentrosaurus. I think most meat eaters would think twice before trying to tackle those spikes. Schleich has many more models available and we are sure we will add to the range soon. Check out all the Schleich Dinos we have to offer currently, and don’t forget also our wide range of Papo Dinosaurs.
We also have other great Schleich figures now in, including Super Heroes, Peanuts, Knights and Sea Life. See also more Schleich dinos here!

The last time I posted about Christmas it was late September and the festive season still seemed a good way off. But how time flies! Two months have whizzed past and we’re now firmly in midst of xmas shopping madness.
Somehow my thoughts of putting up a post in early November seem to have gone out of the window, but I still thought it was worth putting together a few biggish present gift ideas for the big day.
All of the products below, plus many more besides can be found in our new Christmas Toys category on the website. However, be warned things are moving very fast stock-wise. What we have now may well be all gone by next week!
Remember FREE standard UK Shipping with worldwide and expedited options available. Happy shopping!

I wrote a post over 6 months ago about the new Papo Dinosaur figures we had at Comaco. This has been a double success; not only have the figures proved to be a great hit, but also that post has been our most popular so far.
Recently we received stock of brand new Papo product – Dinosaur Mini Figures. These are six superbly detailed figures, each about 7 cm long, in a tub.
Check out the individual dinos above; click on the pictures to view them full size. This product makes a welcome addition to the popular Papo tubs of Mini Knights, Mini Pirates, Mini Fantasy Figures and Mini Horses we already stock.
Another new Papo product for 2014 is the Dilophosaurus. This mid sized predator is approx 15 cm long and sports a colourful head crest.
In addition to all these we still have a sizeable range of older dino figures. Not least our favourite Spinosaurus; a giant predator bigger than T-Rex that hunted like a crocodile. Check them all out here.
