Do you think that author Norman Bridwell realized—when Clifford the Big Red Dog was first published in 1963—that in 2009 Clifford would still be an international sensation? It’s not surprising, really; who could resist a giant dog who was once the runt of his litter, but outgrew his family’s house thanks to the love of his special human?
Nowadays Clifford enjoys celebrity through Bridwell’s books as well as the popular PBS cartoon. And now Clifford has joined us here at Ty’s Toy Box, in the Clifford the Big Red Dog Store. Come on it and find all of your favorite Clifford characters and all of the Clifford goodies your kids want.
Also make sure you check out the new Scholastic BE BIG campaign, where kids are encouraged to follow Clifford’s big ideas about making the world a better place to enact changes in their own communities. Not sure how to participate? Don’t worry—the site gives step-by-step suggestions on ways to get involved.
Now where else are you going to find a big red dog who does all of that? Nowhere, that’s where.
Welcome to Ty’s Toy Box, Clifford! We’re awfully glad to have you here!
