Once upon a time in a kingdom far, far away giant unicorn teddy toys were not just imaginary characters from fairy tales. They were real.

If you want to bring a dusting of imagination, a glimmer of enchantment and just a hint of adventure into your children's world, then these are the playthings to buy.

Unicorn fans have previously been able to purchase unicorn party supplies and even unicorn cereal, but nothing comes close to the allure of a giant unicorn teddy.

What is a unicorn?

Before we start running down the best toys on the market, it's essential to understand where the fascination began and get to the nitty-gritty of what a unicorn really is.

By dictionary definition, a unicorn is a mythical animal. Typically represented as a horse with a single straight horn projecting from its forehead. But to many people around the world, a unicorn means so much more.

For starters, the official national animal in Scotland is a unicorn. The unicorn first appeared on the Scottish royal coat of arms back in the 12th century. But, for children, a unicorn represents many different things.

For us, it's all about having fun.

What's better than a giant unicorn teddy? A giant unicorn teddy with wings.

Review: "This is a lovely soft and cuddly Pegasus which stands just over 3.5ft tall on its plinth. It is quite steady and its wings can be positioned to some degree. It appears exactly as in the pictures. It is obviously a quality toy which makes a good centre-piece, although one needs a sizeable room! A favourite with the children."
