Numtum Toy kindness…
Since posting about the one-off Numtum toys we made to celebrate finishing the series production, we've been inundated with emails asking how to buy them!
We're thrilled to see Numtums is going down so well, but want to re-iterate that the BBC are solely responsible for making and marketing Numtum toys, so it's very much up to them. At Beakus we designed the Numtums, and created the animation, but the concept came from the BBC, hence it's up to them when, and if, any Numtum toys will be made. Sorry!! But, to speed things up, read on…..
Dear BBC – as a subtle nudge for you to start making Numtum toys, here is a selection of requests we've received from desperate parents over the past two months..!
- Does the mother-in-law have a pattern? I would love to get my mum to make one. Maybe she could adapt it to make Super Numtum!
- Hi there, can I buy one of your stuffed numtums?!
- Can you please advise when the numtum toys will be available to purchase. My 22 month old son loves numtums and won't watch anything else. Its his birthday soon and I would love to be able to buy him one.
- My wife and I just saw a note on your website about the lovely Numtum stuffed toys and wanted to ask how (or more importantly, if) we could get one made for our Numtum-mad little boy, Dexter? He's a massive fan of the show and gets incredibly excited when it's on – especially when Super Numtum makes an appearance. And it's Super Numtum that we would love to get for him, if at all possible. I can only imagine you're inundated with requests and poor Lorraine is being worked to death – but if I didn't ask I'd never forgive myself. Please let me know what we can do, if anything, to help bribe you all.
- How much would it be to buy a numtum number two?
- Could you please advise me if and where i can buy Numtum toys, my 18 month old son loves the numtum programme.
- These are fab my daughter loves numtums. Will these be available to buy?
- We love numtums and want toys..
- I'd be interested in buying some numtum toys if possibile as my two year old son is mad about the numtums :)
- My children and I are huge fans of the Numtums. Congratulations on creating such a fantastic show. I think that the Numtum toy that Lorraine made are wonderful, and I was wondering if there were any plans for more Numtum toys in the pipeline? Would it be possible to commission Lorraine to make two more, and how much would that cost?
- Hello. Please tell me if you're going to sell Numtums toys… My daughter is absolutely nuts for them! If you are planning to put them into production, please put something online.. I personally know at least 10 kids who'd go mad for a whole set!
- Hello, I am wondering if I can purchase a Numtums felt soft toy from your fantastic childrens programme. I am hoping you can give me more information as to were I can find one!
- I saw in your blog that you're starting to produce Numtums soft toys – do you know where and when they'll be available as my daughter Grace is obsessed with them (and it's her birthday next Friday 27th – she'd love me if I could get her one!)
- hi my son is 3 and loves numbers an so loves the numtums, he is fixed on the games on cbeebies website and the program i have entered in to google for toys an book as little figures would make great a great counting aid, but all ive found are your fantastic stuffed toys and wondered if i could buy oneor maybe two or even more so he has 1 to10 his fave numtum is 10 so thats what we'd start with

- my daughter s 4th birthday is on the 16th and she absolutely fell in love with the numtum characters! any chance of purchasing one of the soft toys?
- I read an article saying you had a go at making the Numtums toys. Just wondered…. can I buy any anywhere?
- My little boy of 7 adores them and his younger brother is learning all the numbers at the age of 3. Please help.
- My two year old daughter has been addicted since the first airing and can now recognise all her numbers and count to ten. Even when Numtums isn't on the tv, she is asking to watch it on the BBC I player.
- Are the any plans for any merchandise, as she would love a number 5 teddy? Thank you so much again, keep up the good work!!!
- My daughter and I love the show, the animation, the music the content is just fantastic. We would really love to get some numtum toys. Where could we purchase them from and how much are they?
- My daughter has just turned two and is beginning to learn her numbers (she can count to thirteen as that is the number of stairs we have!). She loves cbeebies and we have been watching Numtums – will you be making more of the delightful felt dolls for retail in the future? Also, can I suggest a set of little plastic figures with the numbers so small kids can use them to count as I think they would sell really well.
- Are there any sets of ten soft by tum toys? I would love to get some for my 2 year old daughter …..
- Will there be toys available to buy, and if so when? They would make my daughter very happy indeed!
- How much do your Numtum dolls cost?
