6 of the best llama toys

We select the best llama-themed toys, kits and collectibles for babies and children, from birth to 9 years

Jellycat Lovely Llama

Llamas are having a bit of a moment – and toy aisles everywhere are bursting with entertaining variations on a shaggy, long-coated theme. From soft, huggable llamas to cheeky llama collectibles to sew-your-own craft-kit llamas, this South American camelid has never been so popular – or so much fun to play with.


Here’s our pick of the best llama toys for all ages:

Jellycat Lovely Llama

1. Jellycat Lovely Llama, £35

Age: 12 months+

What it is: At 35cm tall, this good-sized, huggable llama has long, silky, super-soft fur, foldy ears and squidgy hooves. Hand-wash only.

Why we like it: Would you look at his adorable, multi-pastel coat! We also like how his hooves are weighted, so he can stand on sit on his little frizzy bottom.

Available at: Jellycat, Selfridges and Fleurtations

Llamas in pjs

2. Llamas in Pyjamas Mini Game, £5

Age: 3 to 6

What it is: A mini sized (15cm x 2cm x 14 cm) matching game for 2 to 4 players, who race to match cards illustrated with llamas to their (very individual) pyjamas.

Why we like it: Like most Orchard Toys games, it's a joy to play, and the pieces are sturdy enough to withstand a heavy schedule repeat plays. This one's a really good size to pop in your bag if you're travelling away from home.

Available at: Orchard Games, Amazon and Boots

Skip Hop Zoo Little Kids Backpack

3. Skip Hop Zoo Little Kids Backpack Luna Llama, £16.29

Age: 3+

What it is: A colourful child-sized (30cm x 12cm x 27cm) backpack with an insulated (and wipe-clean) interior, front zip pocket and a mesh side bottle holder.

Why we like it: It's a sturdy little backpack with plenty of space inside (though note that it's not quite tall enough for an A4-sized exercise book). But it's the cute, fluffy hair on top that makes it properly special.

Available at: John Lewis, JoJo Maman Bebe and Kidly

lamaze llama leandro toy

4. Lamaze Leandro The Llama Soft Toy, £14.99

Age: From birth

What it is: A 25cm x 20cm x 7.5cm soft llama with a dapper bow tie, a chime in its body, hooves that clack together and a squeaker in his neck. Comes with a clip for attaching to a pushchair or car seat.

Why we like it: Leandro has so many colourful textures – smooth, furry, knitted, satiny – for little fingers to explore, and we think his facial expression is super-friendly.

Available at: John Lewis and Amazon

make your own llama kit

5. The Make Arcade Sew Your Own Felt Llama Craft Kit, £6.50

Age: 7+

What it is: A DIY felt craft kit in a jar that contains pretty much all you need (felt, key chain/badge pin, needle, thread, stuffing and instructions) to make a 8cm x 5cm felt llama. The only thing not included is a pair of scissors and possibly a few pins.

Why we like it: This is a lovely little llama project for an older primary-school-age child (with a little adult supervision). And the instructions are particularly good – with photographs at each stage.

Available at: John Lewis and Not On The High Street

jakks pacific who's your llama collectibles

6. Jakks Pacific Who's Your Llama Collectibles, £7.99 each

Age: 4+

What it is: A collection of 12 little llamas (6cm x 16cm x 14 cm), each with its own distinct look and style, suitably llama-isa name (Drama Llama, Bahama Llama), moving eyes and either a winking, spitting. grinning or tongue-poking-out feature. They come in a blind bag, so you won't know who you've got till you open it.

Why we like it: We love the names and the silly outfits – and the tongue-poking-out feature is awesome. A fun, good-quality collectible.
