Jolly Bob and Jolly Lovely - New in Jan 2010  

This is the Reggae enthusiast Jolly Bob and the gentle and light-hearted flower girl Jolly Lovelyy, coming soon in 2010 January :). official announced it will be available on January 2010.

Full Press Information
Altenkunstadt, 8th December 2009. Love, peace and happiness – under this motto new friendships are formed. With Reggae enthusiast Jolly Bob and the gentle and light-hearted flower girl Jolly Lovely, the NICI GmbH is giving fresh impetus to the Jolly Mäh family.

All fans may eagerly await them. As early as the beginning of January 2010, the two charismatic new members of the sheep community with cult status will delight their friends with an extensive product range and will be available in well-assorted gift and toy shops, the internet, department stores as well as the 35 NICI shops.

On the way home from their holiday at the sunny Côte d`Azur, the Jolly Mäh sheep make the acquaintance of Jolly Bob, a cool hitchhiker with funny dreads and a typically Jamaican cap. His tanned cuddly fur leaves no doubt that he is a real Jamaican. He is on his way to Jolly Lovely, the cute flower girl he met at a music festival. Jolly Lovely is truely pretty and wears a bright flower necklace over her cream-coloured fleece.
Both sheep are available in six different sizes – from 15 cm to 120 cm – as dangling plush. As BeanBags with a keyring or very “attached“ as MagNICIs, Jolly Bob and his girlfriend Jolly Lovely will accompany their fans everywhere.

The name is the programme!

Apart from fluffy cushions, the assortment also includes stylish shoulder bags, convenient purses and mobile phone pouches as well as spacious pencil cases, mugs, pens, “My Friends“ books, writing paper and notebooks. The new characterised Jolly Mäh collection offers everything trend-conscious fans may desire.

NICI 20th Anniversary - Turtle - Part I  

I am going to introduce a series of classic NICI collection :), I believe most of the NICI hard-core collectors should know about it.. In the year 2006, NICI is 20 years old :) (since 1986) and now + another 3 years = 23 years :D.

In the year 2006 they launched a series of NICI classic collections, they have 4 in total. Today I am going to show Part I, which is Mr. Turtle. I think this is the first NICI Classic character.. (Anyone can help me verify this?)

The Box / Packaging

The Difference

I notice there are 2 types of design (or I shall say 2 version of turtle)

First, at the bottom of the leg you will found a NICI Logo.. one of it is in plastic material, and another one is sow on it. I am not sure why there are 2 versions of it, I suspect that NICI Logo which sewn on the leg one from first batch, and the plastic material one is from the later batch.

Second, one of the tag with barcode, and another one is without barcode.

The Mini Booklet

For celebrating the 20th Anniversary of NICI, it come with a mini booklet as below.

Turtle: "My birth cert!"

Isn't it nice? :), I not really sure whose signature is that... Is it NICI CEO? or NICI Marketing people? or NICI Character Designer? I wonder~

Close Up

Below is the close up photo to highlight what is the special of the 20th Anniversary.

Golden colour label

Still made in China, haha..

Ribbon that tide on the box :)

You can find it online at Cuddly Kingdom, NICI Classic Collection

I WON!!  

First I won this above! Winning bid at GBP 3.00 (RM16.80).. (Cheap :D)

And next I wont this as well (below). GBP 15.00 (RM 84.00), I think the price are reasonable.. but I am not sure about the condition of the soft toy yet... judging from the picture it looks quite good in condition, I just have to wait until I see the actual one..
:( Bad part.. Total Postal Service cost GBP 12.80 (RM 71.68), so in total I need to pay GBP 30.80 (RM 172.48) for both of them both to migrate from UK to Malaysia...

Well overall I am still happy with my own Xmas present :D....

Oh... Bunny Where Are You?  

two days ago, I received an email from Australia. A NICI fans who need a help on looking for the rabbit below.
