Toys under the tree

I wanted to make toys that I felt were timeless and would be nostalgic for viewers of all ages.

The circus train has a masonite base, with painted wooden dowels for the bars, that is covered in hand dyed wool felt with embroidered details. All of the animals are needle felted and then stitched in place.



The wagon filled with building blocks was made with felt covered foam blocks and a felt covered coroplast base for the wagon. Each of the blocks is removable so they can be stacked and rearranged.


The toy oven door opens and inside is a tray of chocolate chip cookies.


The knobs on the Etch A Sketch turn.

I have to say that these are amazing. I wish that i was talented enough to do that! Sadly my talents only allow me to make halloween costumes (and really easy clothes)
