  • Fireman Sam - Still our Hero Next Door!

    Posted on March 12, 2013 by admin

    With some* of our staff young enough to remember Fireman Sam on their TV's when they were small we're delighted to see that it's still a household favourite all these years later! *Those who aren't in this category shall remain nameless.

    Defying his age, Fireman Sam still races around Ponty Pandy helping out his friends. In an age when there are now hundreds of children's licenses to choose from, this is no mean feat. Sam has seen several newbie licenses come and go during his time we are sure.

    This got us thinking about what the best formula is for a children's licensed TV show. A good moral story line surely appeals to parents wanting to teach their kids valuable early lessons, bright colours and fun 3D animation certainly gets the kids attention! Plus a general all round nice person who kids like and some no doubt want to be when they grow up! Basically Fireman Sam seems to have the perfect formula.

    We are delighted to still stock Fireman Sam toys, party supplies and gift ware after all this time. With no sign of slowing down and retiring, we're sure Sam has a long time ahead of him on our screens.  Visit our Fireman Sam section for the latest toys just in stock. http://www.heroesforkids.co.uk/fireman-sam/toys-gifts-playsets.html

    To get your fill of Sam in between shows, visit his official site:

  • Humf Supports I CAN Children's Charity - Chatterbox Challenge 2013

    Posted on March 5, 2013 by admin

    As the Official Humf Store we are keen to support Humf's favourite charity I CAN. Here's a little more info about it and do follow the link for more information on I CAN and the Chatterbox Challenge.

    1 in 10 children in the UK, 2 or 3 in every classroom, have communication difficulties that require specialist help.

    I CAN is the children’s communication charity, existing to ensure that no child is left out or left behind because of a difficulty communicating.

    As many as 10% of children in the UK – over 1 million – have speech, language and communication needs that require specialist help. I CAN works to ensure that everyone in contact with babies, children and young people (parents, teachers, childminders etc) knows the importance of children's communication, how to support their communication development and how to spot when a child or young person may have a difficulty communicating.

  • Dear Zoo - Toys, Gifts and Books Inspired by the Classic Story

    Posted on March 1, 2013 by admin

    Dear Zoo is a classic book by the great children's author, Rod Campbell, everybody needs a copy of this lovely story. Having recently celebrated it's 30th anniversary and millions of copies sold, Dear Zoo has cemented it's place in history as one of the most loved children's books ever.

    Children love books - and especially this one. Such a simple concept and storyline but it manages to keep children engaged again and again.

    Dear Zoo has just reached it's 30th anniversary which means that so many of the children who enjoyed it the first time around are now reading it to their own children now. No doubt that they are still enjoying it just as much.

    The story book has sold over 5 million copies since it's launch in 1982 and is now available in many more formats than the original lift-the-flap book. There's a noisy book with the animals roaring, hissing and yapping or a touch and feel book with bits to poke and feel which tiny tots love!

    I have tried and tested several of these versions on my nephew, Ben who is only just 1. Obviously he can't read yet (only a matter of time, he's clearly a child genius!) but he loves the colours and shapes, and the textures of the touch and feel book. He adores turning the pages too! I can't wait for him to be a little bigger to really understand the story.

    We are very pleased to be hosting the official Dear Zoo online shop which has a gorgeous range of toys and gifts featuring Rod Campbell's easily recognised artwork from the original book.

  • Wet Weather Fun and Children's Games - Lunch Box Tombola

    Posted on July 22, 2012 by admin

    When its raining outside and kids need to burn off some energy its can be hard to come up with some new games to play, so we have put together a few of our favourite children's games here.

    Its time to play Lunch Box Tombola!

    You will need:
    One empty lunch box
    A4 paper
    Pen or pencil
    2 or more players aged 3+

    If you need a Lunch box or Lunch bag, we have Big and Small ones in store now:

    Take your piece of paper and fold it into half, half again, half again and finally half again. Now you have 16 rectangles. Write a letter into each one and then tear along the lines so you have each letter in a separate piece of paper.

    Now scrunch them up and put all 16 into a empty lunch box.

    Each player takes a turn to choose a piece of paper, they have to think of an animal that starts with the first letter that they have on their piece of paper and then make the noise of the animal.

    The other players have to guess the animal.

    If you need new Lunch boxes or Lunch bags for back to school - we have a great range online.
