Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a list of Frequently Asked Questions, with new questions added periodically. If your question isn't listed here then please feel free to contact me, I'm always happy to help!

  • Are your toys CE tested? Absolutely! Each plush comes with a Purple Saurus label sewn in which has the CE and logo clearly displayed. I have all my CE documentation safely tucked away in its own file. 

  • Are your toys baby safe? ​Toys which have entirely embroidered or appliqued facial features, and no polypellets to weigh them down (e.g my Tortoise, Narwhal or Lamb plushies) are entirely baby safe, as they have no small parts :) Other toys, such as my Fat Bat plush, are not baby safe due to the polypellets and plastic safety eyes and/or noses. Although these small parts are entirely secured and strong, the toy safety directive requires me to label them as not suitable for children under 3 years as a precautionary measure. I can however make most products with felt eyes. Just ask!

  • Are your toys pet friendly? No. I can't guarantee them, and I'm sure you'll appreciate that a lot of love and time goes into them, so I'd rather not sell them as pet toys!

  • Do you take commissions? I certainly do! Get in touch and I will see if I can fulfill your request :)

  • Where do you get your patterns? I source my patterns from a variety of talented pattern makers. You can find links to some of their websites here!

  • Do you ship internationally? Yes I do! I don't do it by default, but just ask before ordering and I can give you a quote :)

  • How Do You Work Out Your Prices? I factor in the cost of patterns, thread, packaging, business stationery (e.g business cards), shop fees and all sorts of other things, as well as stuffing and fabric costs. I also have to factor in the time it takes me to make a toy, which includes cutting the fabric before I begin sewing, and adding any features by hand at the end! As an example, it takes me on average about five hours to make a Fox, from cutting out fabric to finishing the mouth. I keep my prices as low as possible, so please don't turn your nose up and tut when you read a price tag, or remark within earshot that my toys are expensive or overpriced, as it's very hurtful. I make them all individually by hand with care, and a lot of love goes into each one.
