Quirky new friends to cuddle from Esthex toys and dolls

A teddy bear (albeit cute) has become a bit of a predictable gift for newborns and small children, so why not stick with the soft toy theme but reach for something a little quirkier to stand out in a soft toy gang?

I personally love the modern, offbeat style of Netherlands brand Esthex – their no-fuss styling makes for a simple toy that is perfect for little hands to hold and play with, not to mention gorgeous to look at.

Esthex have several characters currently available – Lola The Bunny is a favourite of mine (and I find it impossible to choose between the pink or the denim). Boys will love superhero Tough Boy Storm who’s ready for action at a moment’s notice and who wouldn’t adore best friends Naomi and Sofie? The delightful, tweed trouser-wearing Mr Morris Fox has a hidden talent all of his own – he plays a sweet lullaby via a string cord in his back!

All these Esthex dolls are around forty centimetres long and completely machine washable, which is fantastic because I get the feeling little ones will be dragging these friends along with them wherever they go!

Esthex dolls are priced from $49.95 and available from Rudy And The Dodo.
