The Educators Kit is comprised of all of the components currently available which will enrich the children’s experience with Gibson in the classroom and when they take him home for sleepovers.

 The components are:
    • Gibson, a plush gorilla (320mm tall)
    Gibson is a lovable plush toy which has been hand-made out of the best quality materials and has certificates of compliance for child safety. Each Gibson is unique! He is machine washable (medium heat, hand wash cycle) and can be gentle tumble dried in a bag (to protect his eyes!). Made in China for Gibson Gorilla Kit Company.
    • Gibson’s treehouse box – for storage and where he lives in the classroom
    This sturdy beautifully decorated laminated box is both the storage container for his belongings and his ‘tree house’ for his home in the classroom. It is wipe-cleanable. The box will withstand some hard wearing but should be used as a place for Gibson on a shelf rather than as a toy and plaything – this will ensure a longer life! Made in Australia for Gibson Gorilla Kit Company.
    • Gibson’s glossy Appointment Calendar backing board

    Gibson’s Appointment Calendar is an essential part of the Gibson Gorilla Kit when he is going to be having sleepovers! The reusable glossy Calendar backing board is very strong and beautifully designed to delight children with jungle characters and trees. It can stand next to Gibson's house or hang on the wall nearby. Each year there will be a Calendar insert available on this website for the following year. The insert feeds through a slot in the backing board – then each month’s page can be passed through but is always available as a record of who has taken Gibson home through the year. (This is essential for fairness of sharing Gibson for sleepovers!)

     

    • Gibson's yearly insert Calendar (a downloadable file).

    This insert calendar is a downloadable file which will be emailed to you on payment - for your convenience you can  print out the whole calendar or only the months left in the calendar year*.

    • Gibson’s song -”Who’s taking Gibson home?” (now a downloadable file)
     “WHO’S TAKING GIBSON HOME?”

Made in Australia for Gibson Gorilla Kit Company.
