Your little ones will love to cuddle with our Sally the Leicester Longwool Lamb plush toy. This stuffed animal baby is inspired by the Leicester Longwool sheep bred at Colonial Williamsburg today. Excellent partners for budding historians, veterinarians and animal-lovers of all vintages and an especially perfect gift for kids visiting Colonial Williamsburg in spring to see the baby lambs.
- Sally the Leicester Longwool Lamb plush toy
- Inspired by Rare Breeds of Colonial Williamsburg
Colonial Williamsburg's Rare Breeds program was begun in 1986 to preserve genetic diversity in livestock. Some of the selected breeds represent animals that could have been present in Williamsburg during the 18th century according to historical research. The program complements Colonial Williamsburg's living history interpretation by portraying another aspect of daily life in colonial Virginia. Rare is defined as having fewer than 1,000 animals registered annually in North America. The breeds in the foundation's program - the Leicester Longwool sheep, American Cream Draft horses and America Milking Red Devons have fewer than 200 animals registered annually in North America.

Everyone should have one
Our family has 4 of these lambs purchased over the last 12 years and none of them look like the other. However, the one we got just a few weeks ago was not sewn so well. One of the ears is attached in a lopsided manner and the overall body doesn't have as pleasing a look. (Hard to explain this without a photo.) I still would encourage others to get a Sally, but the factory needs to do a better job.
I have called my granddaughter “Lambie “since she was born. When I inadvertently called her baby brother “Lambie” she said, “Hey, that’s my name!” I had to get her this for her birthday. Also, it is the softest I have ever felt,
Still our go-to gift for nre baby.
We've been giving Sally (in our house she's called "Lamby") to newbotn babies ever since our oldest grandson was born more than 20 years ago. She's always appreciated and loved. There's no better not-too-large stuffed animal for a baby or child. This one is so she'll be on hand for when a baby will be botn in mid-October. Only thing tht's disappointing is that the one delivered today came in a plastic UPS bag. he used to be delivered in a nice box.
Cute and Cuddly
This lamb is adorable and so very soft. My granddaughter loves it and so do I.
