time at Boots in the mid-to-late nineties
meant new Wallace & Gromit Xmas exclusives to brighten
up your pressie list. Sadly, like all of the items featured
this round-up, they are no longer in production. That
means you'll have to get your coat on and start hunting
around Car Boot sales and secondhand markets to plug
the gaps in your collection...
This was fab! - Shaun was presented to
us in the form
of a 250mm high plastic topper for
your Xmas fur tree.
The cutest fairy you've ever seen was boxed
in a clear
plastic drum, with a lid that - once
opened - was a devil
to put back in place!...
Wallace & Gromit Tree Decorations
Once you had the fairy, you just
had to get the tree
ornaments too. Gromit was perched
on pressie shaped
mysteriously like a bone, whilst Shaun
munching a giant cracker...
Wallace & Gromit Crackers
These beautifully presented
crackers were too good to
pull. Each contained a novelty
gift, motto, hat and sticker.
The 8 gifts included:
Wooden Gromit YoYo W&G
Wooden Gromit key chain
mini Rubiks Cube
Wooden Wallace key chain W&G
mini playing cards
Gromit mini address book W&G
mini pencil set
The gifts were top-class items,
good enough to have
been sold separately. Indeed, you'll
still find these
appearing individually on eBay
and its like - now you
know where they originally came from!
