Join us on Nessie's Enchanted Journey: The Giant Jellycat Loch Ness Monster Visits Our Shop in Portobello - Come and see her while you can!

We're bursting with excitement to unveil a magical surprise at our little shop on Portobello High Street (the Scottish Portobello not the London one!) - none other than Nessie herself has graced us with her presence! Yes, you read that right – a colossal Jellycat Loch Ness Monster has made its way to our cosy corner of Scotland, and we are so excited to welcome her to our window!

If you're not familiar with Nessie, let us tell you a bit about her...Nestled within the mysterious depths of Loch Ness, Scotland's largest and deepest freshwater lake, Nessie has captivated the hearts and imaginations of locals and visitors alike for centuries. With her long, sinuous neck and elusive nature, she embodies the allure of the unknown, leaving many to ponder her existence and unravel the mysteries surrounding her.

Imagine our delight when we stumbled upon the extraordinary creation by Jellycat – a larger-than-life plush rendition of our beloved Nessie! Standing tall and majestic, our giant Jellycat Nessie is mysterious, cuddly and huge! Whether you're a child or a child at heart, she is ready to photobomb your pics if you're walking past our shop! She's on loan from our friends at Jellycat (well, that's what they tell us but we know she's come down from Inverness) and gracing our window display for a limited amount of time! Come and have a nosey before she disappears back into the mysterious depths of Loch Ness again!!

Did you know that the earliest recorded sighting of Nessie dates back to the 6th century, when Irish monk Saint Columba encountered a mysterious creature in the waters of the River Ness? Or that there have been over 1,000 reported sightings of Nessie over the years, each adding a new layer of intrigue to her mystique? Strangely there have been no sightings of Nessie in Loch Ness for the past week or so, I wonder why that would be???

We love a Jellycat here at Cove – the creative geniuses behind our beloved Nessie (well, that's what they tell us anyway...). Founded on the principles of whimsy and imagination, Jellycat has become synonymous with quality craftsmanship and unparalleled charm. With their extensive range of plush toys, including cuddly animals, quirky creatures, and lovable monsters, Jellycat has captured the hearts of children and adults worldwide. Each Jellycat creation is meticulously designed to evoke joy and wonder, making them cherished companions for life's greatest adventures. We always have a super collection of Jellycat's in the shop, lots of collectors pass by to pick up their latest fave but often our most loyal customers are the smallest people of Portobello with big grins on their faces as Mummy or Daddy hand over a bit of pocket money for their favourite new teddy! It always brings a smile to our faces!

As a small independent shop in the busy high street of Portobello we'd love to welcome you to our shop to visit Nessie (she's not for sale, just for photo ops, but she has some smaller Nessie babies that can be taken home!)! We'd love to see you in the shop, so come and have a nosey at Nessie before she heads back to Loch Ness, snap a photo and share your Nessie stories with us!
