Jellycat has become a household name in the last few years, providing children and adults alike with a fun, characterful range of soft toys to love and play with. If you're looking for the ideal gift for a new baby, whether that's to celebrate their birth, a Christening or naming party, or their first birthday, then a Jellycat friend is the perfect idea; they're perfect for baby shower gifts, presents from grandparents, or simply to decorate baby's nursery.

From soft toy characters to blankies with bunnies attached, there's a Jellycat character to please everyone. For cheerful decor you could choose the Amuseables Sun, or how about the cutest Bartholomew Bear swinging from a shooting star; for sports fans there's a cuddly football; or for dino enthusiasts you can fall in love with Fossilly the Stegosaurus. The bunnies and teddies have been favourites for 25 years, while each year there are new fabulous characters to enjoy - from Capybaras to Cheese, from Elephants to Asparagus, and from Dragons to Porridge.

What's so unique about Jellycat toys, you might ask? To the uninitiated, they're just plush toys. But oh, they're so much more. Jellycat toys are not just plush - they're luxurious, with a softness like no other toys on the high street. They're cute, playful, loveable, and suitable for everyone. Older children will love playing with their beloved Jellycat dinosaurs and bunnies, so they're perfect for birthdays for bigger kids too.

You might find yourselves ordering a moon or sunshine for yourself, while you're browsing for baby gifts - be warned, Jellycat toys are irresistible...

There's a Jellycat for everyone, and every occasion - with soft blankets, bag charms, musical toys, sports characters, and lots of fruit and veg too.
