Silly Sounds Bodies Make are Funny
Introduce customers to Ben KaChoo, Harry Hiccers and Norman PhartEphant and watch their eyes light up! Your shoppers undoubtedly know how much the kids in their lives love humor that deals with bodily functions, and these stuffed animals are full of funny, all-too-human noises. When the tails of these apologetic critters are gently squeezed, the animals sneeze , hiccup, pass gas, and burp, followed by apologies like “Excuse me,” “Sorry,” and “Oops!” — much too cute to be rude.
Each of the Zoo Tales books is flex-bound with thirty-two fully-illustrated pages as well as a full page of stickers to keep kids entertained for hours. The story related by Harry Hiccers, A New Zoo, introduces a young koala and his family and riffs on the humor of hiccups, brought about when Harry has moved and is therefore experimenting with food beyond his usual diet of eucalyptus. When Harry’s hiccups let loose, one of his responses is “Whoopsie Daisy!’ The book goes on to explore the start of friendships, making it an excellent choice for a youngster coping with the first day of school or moving to a new town.
All the books in the Fierce Fun series are written by Angela Larson, author of many parenting magazine articles and founder of the company, who has teamed up with talented illustrators. Customers can also sign kids up for the special Kids’ Club where they can download new titles and have a blast with coloring pages, mazes, connect-the-dots and more.
Fierce Fun Toys donates a portion of proceeds to charities that help kids all over the world, including Half the Sky, which supports orphans in China, and The Smile Train, that provides medical care for kids with cleft lip and/or palette in many parts of the world.
Kids soon learn that sometimes a small embarrassment takes place, but there are ways to handle it and these creature-and-story combos are a humorous way to make that point.
