Handmade Soft Toys - The Timeless Gift for Every Occasion
The Handcrafted Shop has carved out a niche as the one stop shop for buyers and sellers of unique handmade items and gifts. The vibrant marketplace is an online success story, combining contemporary designs and on trend fashions with the traditional art of handcrafting in all its various forms.
With impressive hits across all lines, one category in particular is proving perennially popular, with store holders reporting their handmade soft toys are consistently enquired about and sought after.
Quality and Care
Every soft toy featured in The Handcrafted Shop is hand stitched using the finest materials and textiles. Their durability eclipses the frequently inferior quality of mass produced soft toys, making them a unique and endearing gift that provide years of play and love.
The popularity of soft toys can be traced back through history from the first rag dolls of Roman times and the rise of the teddy bear in the early 1900's, to more contemporary characters such as sock monkeys, snuggle toys and plush animals of every description.
Drawing on contemporary, classic and retro designs, and with hands, faces and outfits crafted from materials and textiles including German mohair, English glass, organza, flannelette, wool, calico, chenille, lace and suede, soft toy types include:
- Dolls: Rag dolls, elf dolls, ballerina dolls and long-limbed boy and girl dolls in bright colours and whimsical designs.
- Plush Animals: Choose your favourite from the natural world - elephants, penguins, monkeys, caterpillars, puppies, mice, rabbits and many more.
- Teddy Bears: In a league of their own, The Handcrafted Shop's artisan teddy bears feature amazing attention to detail and quality finishing.
- Comforters & Baby Toys: Soft and interactive activity cubes in bright colours, snuggle rugs, bean bags and cot toys make ideal presents for christenings, new born or toddler gifts.
