Restock Dates

You guys have been snapping up our animal costumes quicker than we expected lately, and so you might have noticed that quite a few of our products are out of stock. We're having a bunch shipped in by plane to make up for it and we thought we should let you know when it is all expected.

Of course, you are quite welcome to give us a ring or send us an email with any specific questions you might have, but hopefully this note will help too.

Delivery due on 23rd October

In good time for Halloween orders, we'll have the Monster, Bear (that's the fleecier of our 2 bears), Hamster, Giraffe and Panda. You can also expect some great new products next week including 2 new cats, a reindeer, a new alien and 3 new hoodies. Don't know about you but we're really excited about the alien.

Delivery due on 25th October

Also next week and in time for Halloween, but most likely a couple of days later, we'll be replenishing the kigurumis shown in our lightweight animal suits category. These ones come in different sizes, so some of them are already in stock in some sizes but out of stock in others. We'll be replenishing all sizes for most of them, and the list includes the Turtle, Bear, Dinosaur, Bee, Eagle, Dragon, Mouse (both pink and blue), Lobster, Shark, Skunk and Cheetah. There will also be some exciting newbies on this shipment too: a polar bear, bluebird, wild boar, mole and donkey. All the new ones are amazing and we can't wait to show you.

Delivery due on 15th November

In mid-November we'll be getting a huge delivery of the kigurumis shown in our fleece animal suits category. This shipment will include the characters Tigger and Eeyore, and animals the Dinosaur, Panda, White Tiger, Tabby Cat, Black Cat, Monkey, Cow, Giraffe, Seal, Frog and Kangaroo (which is currently in stock but expected to sell out soon). We'll also be getting some brand new character kigurumis including Disney's Stitch and Cheer Bear (from the Care Bears).

Delivery due on 25th November

Lastly, towards the end of November we'll be replenishing the Pink Unicorn, Black Dragon, Parrot and Crocodile (which is currently in stock but expected to sell out soon). That'll be it until Christmas but we're really looking forward to 2013 already!

Lots of your photos

You've been sending us your animal costume photos for our competition. So many in fact that they've been coming in quicker than we can upload them to our blog. So here's a big glut of lots and lots of your photos.

Please keep sending them in! We've given away 2 prizes already - the fox and the dinosaur kigurumis - and we'll be giving away another at the end of October. Also it's fun.
1. All sorts of fancy dress hi-jinks on a car, which appears to be buckling, featuring our Zebra Kigurumi. Thanks to Alex for sending it in.

2. This is Eoin, rocking out in the Dinosaur Kigurumi, in some kind of farmyard car park. Thanks to Amie for sending it in.

3. A person in our Giraffe Kigurumi in a box, in a photograph, in your mind... or something. Thanks to Elinor for this one.

4. We've only gone and forgotten who sent us this one. But we like it and we're pretty sure it had something to do with football. So thanks, you.

5. This is a nice smiley huggy one which we like because it makes us feel nice when we look at it. Well done Kelly for being so nice, and thanks for sending it in.

'Big Face' Animal T-Shirts


For a long time we have been looking for a range of awesome animal T-shirts that were good enough to be featured in our shop. Whilst we saw one or two that we liked, it's fair to say that nothing out there was cutting the mustard. Until now.

We are really really pleased to announce our new range of animal T-Shirts, and boy-o-boy was it worth the wait. We are starting with a range of 13 different designs, each featuring 'big face' artwork in which the animal's face takes up most of the chest area, blending away nicely at the sides.

We're really happy about them, we're already wearing them ourselves and we know you guys are going to love 'em.

The above photo shows the Eagle, Lion and Guinea Pig 'big face' animal T-shirts, but for the full range including a Rottweiler,  Panther, Pug, Hippo and White Tiger, check out our Animal T-Shirts page.

New Frog Prince Kigurumi


Here's a first look at our brand new kigurumi animal costume - the Frog Prince. It features a crown, some absolutely humongous googley eyes attached to the hood and a large pair of webbed hands at the ends of the sleeves. We think it's pretty special.
