Do you ever have battles at bath time? It’s easy to make sure little ones have a splashing good time with our brilliant range of fun bathroom products for children, (or even those that are just young at heart).

The Gruffalo is based on the popular book by Julia Donaldson, the story of a little mouse that invents the scariest monster he can imagine.

“He has terrible tusks, and terrible claws, and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws.
He has knobbly knees, and turned-out toes, and a poisonous wart at the end of his nose.
His eyes are orange, his tongue is black, he has purple prickles all over his back.”

The shocked little mouse then discovers The Gruffalo is very real!

He then cleverly convinces The Gruffalo that he is the scariest creature in the forest, a  classic folk tale that children love.

Now you can re-tell the Story at Bath time and have your little Monsters roaring with laughter as you get them in a lather with Woodland Mist scented knobbly knees bath and shower gel on the Gruffalo Flannel in the bath time gift set.
