To celebrate Aardman Animations' 40th Anniversary, Shaun the sheep, who first appeared in the animated film 'A Close Shave' alongside inventor Wallace and his trusted canine companion Gromit, has been brought to life in the finest wool plush. He is wearing his famous knitted jumper after his very own 'close shave' with Wallace’s latest invention – the Knit-O-Matic - which sees him come out the other end squeaky clean but a little too closely shaved, hence his name Shaun! 2015 saw the release of The Shaun the Sheep Movie following more of this fearless little sheep's adventures!
Shaun the Sheep is a limited edition of 1,976 pieces and he comes with his numbered certificate in a Steiff gift box with its original protective cardboard outer sleeve.
