Four cute creatures with a clever little back story make for great childhood friends. If there’s a child in need of a cuddly companion, look no further – especially as they’re now available in Australia and New Zealand!
Based on four characters: Loris, Sloth, Rab and Korat from the planet Craft, this range of Japanese-designed children’s gear has piqued huge international interest. Craftholic was created by Japanese artist Ikuko Yamamoto, and apparently when it was launched in Japan in 2011 it gained a huge following.
The back story goes that Craftholic’s four characters – the monkey, bear, rabbit and cat – can transform into different sizes, colours and shapes. That includes soft toys, body pillows, hoodies, slippers and bags.
The new local site has a big selection of the four soft toy characters, the large versions (which are very large at 40cm x 111cm) are $59.95, the medium $39.95 and the small $29.95.
