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:
Since Peppa and her family first appeared in cartoon form over decade ago she has gone from strength to strength. Some brand new Peppa Pig Toys just in at Comaco are these great Lego style construction block sets from Big.
We currently have 3 to choose from, but there are more available in the range. The mega size big box sets are the Peppa Pig Hospital Set…
…and the Peppa Pig Fun Park:
Both these these sets contain over 100 pieces and include 4 Peppa character figures. The boxes are a whopping 58 x 47 x 12 cm.
If you fancy something a little smaller then there is the Peppa Pig Train Stop Set:
This one is a more modest 15 pieces and includes a Peppa Pig figure. The box size is 18 x 12 x 9 cm approx.
We have just received a selection of Thomas the Tank Engine Toys we would like to share with you.
Thomas first appeared in print 70 years ago and the popularity of this little engine and his friends seems to show no sign of waning. Many parents who are now buying the toys and books for their own children will have strong memory’s of Ringo Starr’s distinctive narration in the original TV series.
We have three train sets available. The Fisher-Price Flip and Switch Thomas/ Percy cunningly transforms from one engine to the other – two toys in one!
Meanwhile, also from Fisher-Price we have Thomas’ Double Delivery. Two in one is the theme again, but this time this train set has two different destinations and two areas for cargo play. Children can help Thomas on his journey and raise and lower the crossing gate as they send him on his journey.
Finally there is a 50 piece Mega Bloks construction set: Thomas and Friends Sodor Wash Down. This time Percy is the hero and washing the engine is the name of the game. This smart play set comes in its own tough zip up carry case. Whoo Whoo!

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!
