Don’t take our word for it though, read about it in her own words below each section.

Charly (3y9m) says: “These are my cutest f(w)iends ever named Mia and Finn! Even tiny baby Sienna next door is so excited to see them. Mia is very cheeky and Finn is a smartypants like me. I like to play wi(f) them all the day. I (f)ink these are my best on the Prima Toys Chistmas list.”
Prima Toys is thrilled to be bringing one of history’s all-time greatest toys, Stretch Armstrong, to the toy shelf. You can stretch, pull and even tie this unique toy in knots!
