Knitted toys sure have come a long way since that acrylic thing your Nanna made you in the seventies!
Let me be upfront – knitted toys are a subject close to my heart as a fanatical knitter, but the sad truth is that on the whole, I hate them. And then there was Blabla – the company that forever changed daggy knitted toys into something so classy that you want one on your own shelf as well as for your children.
There’s everything to love about these toys – they’re soft, huggable, bright, washable and even certified fair trade! Last year we wrote about the Blabla 2010 range and we’re pleased to give you a sneak peek at the new 2011/2012 range from Blabla – Farm Fresh. It’s full of horses, cows and donkeys so the farm can come to you. Blabla have also included pillows resembling clouds, pebbles and grass in the range, letting you bring even more of the outdoors in.
Prices begin at €20 (about $25) and you can pick them up directly from Blabla.
