The Gruffalo

The story about Gruffalo and the little cunning mouse has been a hit with children and parents all around the world since it was first published in 1999. “The Gruffalo” and subsequent story “The Gruffalo’s Child” were both written by Julia Donaldson and beautifully illustrated by Axel Scheffler. The books have sold over 13 million copies, have been translated into over 40 languages and have won several prizes for children’s literature.

In order to celebrate the 15th birthday of the Gruffalo in 2014, Bajo obtained the licensing rights to exclusively design and produce hand-crafted Gruffalo toys and figurines. All figurines are made from wood and are the perfect size for children’s hands. Allow your children to enter the world of the Gruffalo and his forest friends by playing with these beautifully made wooden toys. Encourage them to practise their language skills by retelling the stories or by creating their own ones during fun small world or bookish play sessions.

And if you ever wondered how the Gruffalo ended up in Australia:

Simon took a stroll through the deep dark wood,
He met the Gruffalo and the Gruffalo looked good.
The Gruffalo growled at him but Simon said:
“Why don’t you come with me to our Ark instead?”

The Gruffalo hesitated and looked confused, 
This guy didn’t look scary but was quite amused.
“Who is this man and where is he from,
Would it be safe for me to go along?”

“Australia, mate, is the place to be. 
You won’t regret it if you agree.
You’ll be played with often, not just in theory,
Because there are many Aussie kids who love you dearly.”

The Gruffalo and his his forest friends mouse, owl, snake and fox happily accepted Simon’s invitation and are now available at Oskar’s Wooden Ark in Australia.
