Finding the perfect friend for your little one is one of the toughest jobs, but with our Always Love You range, not only do we have cuddly toys of all shapes, sizes and characters, but a collection of co-ordinating gifts for every occasion.>
Friends. We all need them. And when we’re little we need them more than ever. It’s a big, wide world out there and we all need a little company. That’s why we created our Always Love You range of soft toys, playful characters your little one could fall in love with and keep by their side for every adventure.
Another beauty of having a first friend is that they’re there for every important moment. Birthdays, Christenings, first steps – when you look back on childhood photos, you can still see those familiar friendly faces smiling back. So, we thought it would be nice to create a range of gifts that reflect that fledgling first friendship.
Our Always Love You gift range is not only full of cuddly friends, but a collection of toys, gifts, keepsakes, hampers and more – perfect for celebrating every milestone. If you’re a friend, family or grandparents looking for that perfect present, then we have the ideal companions.
All our Always Love You cuddly toys are made with a variety of super soft fabrics, so they’re ideal for cuddles. Look out for the return label too – perfect for making sure your little one’s little friend is never that far away.
Let’s meet the friends…
Is there a more traditional friend than the teddy bear? Our Tally Bear is the Always Love You take on a children’s classic. The adorable design is sure to be popular with little ones, and the two of them with have so much fun together, getting up to mischief.

An elephant never forgets, and with a friend like Ellery, children won’t forget them any time soon either. They’ll want to keep our Ellery elephant with them at all times – and with a range of sizes to choose from, you can stick with the traditional soft toy, go small with the Beanie Toy or Comforter – or if you really want to make an impression, Ellery is our only Always Love You toy that comes in a giant version. They might struggle in fit in the pushchair though…
If you know a child that likes to see a bit of themselves in their friend, then our Bella Doll might be the one for them.
