Steiff The Big Friendly Giant Teddy Bear EAN 690013
Size: 15 inches
“I is a nice and jumbly giant! I is the only nice and jumbly Giant in Giant Country!
I is THE BIG FRIENDLY GIANT! I is the BFG. What is your name?” The BFG -
or, to give him his full name, The Big Friendly Giant - is one of Roald
Dahl's best-loved characters.
He features in two of Roald's stories: Danny, the Champion of the World and, of course,
BFG. Seven years after his first appearance in print, The Big Friendly
Giant became the star of his own story. Published in 1982, The BFG has
been a firm favourite with children all over the world ever since, with
the BFG and Sophie’s friendship holding a special part in the heart of
The BFG is the smallest of all the Giants in
Giant Country - but he is also the kindest. While the others rush off to
gobble up 'human beans' every night, the BFG survives on a diet of
snozzcumbers (yucky) and frobscottle (yummy, and with interesting side
effects...), and teaches himself to write by reading Nicholas Nickleby
by ‘Dahl's Chickens.’
He speaks, as his friend Sophie
says, "beautifully" - in an idiosyncratic way all of his own that we
call 'gobblefunk.' A new Disney film version of the story directed by
Steven Spielberg and starring Mark Rylance as the BFG, will be released
worldwide Summer 2016.
Inspired by Quentin Blake’s
original illustrations, Steiff bring their scrumdiddlyumptious style to
the beloved Roald Dahl classic The BFG with their heart-warming
interpretation of the larger than life friendly Giant.
