Terrific travel companions to keep kids entertained this summer

August 14, 2019

Philbin Bear from Gund

In just a few more sleeps, many schools, pre-schools and nurseries up and down the country will close their doors and shut up shop ready for the summer holidays.

Many parents and carers can’t wait to spend some precious time with their little ones, but as the days roll in to the weeks of the summer holidays, mums and dads can start to run out of steam when it comes to thinking up creative ideas to help keep their kids entertained when they aren’t in school. We know, as many of our team are parents themselves, trust us when we say we’ve been there…

So whether you’re planning on some pyjama days at home snuggled up in front of the family’s favourite film, travelling to far flung exotic places to relax on a beach, taking a city break to explore new cultures, or looking forward to some days out at home, we have the perfect play pals to keep your little ones company during these summer holidays and beyond!

Guaranteed to give hugs which last a lifetime, these cuddle companions are lightweight, can be easily packed in a bag, and even better still, they don’t require a passport or a seat booking on a flight to get out and about with your family!

How about this adorable Gund Hamlet Soft Pig Toy? He’d be a great play date if you’re heading to the farm these holidays! Or what about our Muttsy Dog if you’re taking a walk in the park? Bring this super soft plush with you and see if you can spot how many dogs you can see enjoying a stroll while you’re out and about too!


Planning on a picnic? Well if you go down to the woods today, you’re in for a big surprise! As the song goes, why not create your very own teddy bear’s picnic and pack our Philbin Bear with you? He comes in a gorgeous chocolate brown shade and a lighter medium brown too, so the choice is really yours!


Heading to the zoo this summer holiday? Then your little one is in for some roar-some good fun with our small but mighty Gund Cozys Lion. Take him with you as you explore the African savanna on a special safari – all in their imagination, of course. After all, toys are a great way to help with creative and make-believe play. A trip to the zoo could be just the trick to set off a little spark in their minds that will bring hours of endless play with our Cozys Lion when back at home.


And last but by no means least, help your little ones to enjoy a blast from the past when they bring along this trio of pre-historic pals on a trip to the museum. Our Gund Dino Chatter Assortment Cuddly Soft Squeeze Toy features three different types of dinosaurs, so why not use them as a fun but educational prompt to see which dinosaurs your little one can spot as they explore the museum? After all, school may be out for summer but that doesn’t mean they have to stop learning!


If that hasn’t helped to give you some great inspiration of how you can pack these perfect travel companions with you for hours of endless fun these summer holidays, then perhaps this will help… all of these items are currently on sale on the GUND UK website. Hurry now and place your order today – available only while stocks last!
