Something a little different on the blog today as I've noticed many of my fellow bloggers and readers have been having babies lately or have a little one on the way. This post is also perfect for anyone looking for some handmade toy gifts too.
I was recently contacted by a lovely lady named Marta, who has launched her own business making the most adorable soft toys from eco-friendly organic fabrics and fibres. Her company is called MyCuddle and is based in Milan, Italy where she lives but she offers worldwide shipping from her online shop.
Her toys or 'Cuddles' are all handmade by Marta. From the very first sketch of what the 'Cuddle' will look like, to choosing the best organic fabric and right to the finished hand-sewn and embroidered product - she handcrafts everything with the upmost attention to detail.
Marta very kindly let me choose one of her Cuddles to review and after browsing her shop, I fell in love with Antonio*, a super cute grey sleeping rabbit like creature with a blue check scarf. He's very soft to the touch and has a body of grey tweed woollen fabric which is stuffed with organic cotton. Antonio stands at around 18cm tall so he's quite small but perfectly formed to be displayed on a desk or a vanity table etc. The attention to detail is fantastic and you can tell a lot of love has gone into making him.
As well as Antonio, there are plenty of different Cuddle characters to choose from in a range of different sizes. I think these would make lovely gifts for a baby, child or treat for yourself.
More of the Cuddles!
