Plush toys are back in a big way, and if you’re ready to take the step from cute to quirky, here are some fanciful creations to feast on.
We have a bit of a thing for eccentric plush toys here at Babyology (like these quirky dolls and Anna Chambers‘ creations), so we were pretty excited to discover these works of art at the Finders-Keepers markets in Sydney. Tasmanian textile artist Cat-Rabbit is the Geppetto behind these soft toy creations that will surely appeal to adults as much as to children. She has a definite affinity with woodland creatures, with more than a few owls, badgers and even the odd tree sloth along with the other assorted scurrying animals in the ranks of her plush army.
The attention to detail on these tiny little fellows is amazing. With a price tag to match, you probably won’t want to let your toddler take them into the bath, but if you’re looking for something truly unique that will still be treasured once your anklebiter is off to university, you may well find it here.
All original handmade creations, the pieces available for sale are constantly changing, so it’s worth bookmarking her Etsy shop and visiting regularly. Most of the current range of plush toys are about 50 to 60cm in height and range from US$350-US$400.
