Clangers is a British stop-motion animated children’s television series of short stories about a family of murine creatures who live on, and inside, a small moon-like planet. They speak only in whistles, and eat green soup supplied by the Soup Dragon and blue string pudding.The Clangers first aired way back in the 1970s and a new series, narrated by Monty Python, began on C Beebies this year.
With the launch of most new kids programmes comes a selection of toys and accessories to purchase, and The Clangers is no exception. This is a small “squeak and whistle clanger” plush toy.
I’m not entirely sure what animal the Clangers are meant to be but looking at Izebellas new toy it sort of resembles an aardvark and a pink one too with a blue waistcoat . There is the pink waistcoat version too.
The first thing Izebella noticed about her new toy is that it had fingers and most of her soft toys do not.
And if she presses the Clangers tummy it makes several amusing whistle sounds. This can be a little annoying at night time and perhaps especially so for big sister Jordanna who shares a room with her.
It’s quite a cute little thing and when Izebella manages to spot the Clangers on television, she will once again beable to say “I got that”
The Clanger toys come from Character online. The small squeeze and whistle clanger which Izebella has costs approx £9.99.
Another great thing about Clangers this Christmas is that, from 6th December until Christmas Eve, Toys ‘R’ Us will have them all at 30 % off. “
