Review and Giveaway: Super Sweep Plush Toy

Super Sweep

If there’s ever a couple of characters from a well-known children’s television programme that evokes memories from my childhood, it’s Sooty and Sweep from The Sooty Show. I remember well the adventures of Sooty, Sweep and Soo and not forgetting Matthew too.

We were recently sent the lovable Super Sweep, from Golden Bear Toys to introduce to Olly and he’s been an instant hit.

Super Sweep

Super Sweep is made from a really soft fabric so he’s adorable to cuddle and share a film with. Our favourite part of Super Sweep is his cape, it’s a brilliant little costume and he really does look the part. The superhero costume makes Sweep look invincible and when you squeeze his paw, he says one of his most famous phrases. I say phrases, they’re most definitely squeaks which I for one cannot fathom but Olly seems to like him and it makes him smile.

Super Sweep

Olly has never seen the television programme that Sweep comes from but that hasn’t stopped him using his imagination and using Super Sweep as the hero in many of his little stories and imaginative play.

This Super Sweep plush would be a brilliant addition to any Sooty and Sweep fan’s collection, perfect for Christmas would keep the Sooty and Sweep magic alive for many years.

Super Sweep is approximately 25cm tall and is suitable for children aged 3 plus.


Super Sweep is currently priced at £19.99 and is available from Golden Bear Toys online.

    I always loved La La from the Teletubbies – I don’t know why but I just did! I remember I had a badge with La La on and got so upset when it went through the washing machine and still wore it even though it was so faded!
