Animals, DOLLS, and OTHER Fun Things

All the animals featured here are lovingly hand knit using high quality wool, wool blends and cotton yarns. They have hand embroidered faces and are stuffed with polyfiberfil. Some of the animals have safety eyes or tiny buttons, and because of their handmade nature, are not suitable for young children. All of the animals are one of a kind and each develops its personality as I knit it.

Did you know that these animals are not just for kids?! Not only do they encourage a child’s imagination, but they bring cheer or comfort to a teen (who can hold them in bed or carry them around in a backpack), and cheer up an adult, sitting on a book shelf or placed somewhere special around the house. They are perfect little gifts for someone of any age.

If you see an animal you like, please email me with the animal’s name, your name and address and I’ll email you an invoice. Shipping costs vary, but average around $5.

Bunnies, Elephants, Foxes, Badgers, Deer, Bears, Lions: The regular sized animals are approximately 9″ tall from feet to the top of the ears (small rabbits are 7″ tall) and can stand with support, unless it’s noted that they prefer sitting. These animals are based on patterns by Little Cotton Rabbits.

  4. WE are so excited!
    Calvin and Evan are coming into the family to be held and loved!!
    These animals have such gentle characteristics that are easy to fall in love with. ( We already have 2!)
    Their little hanging legs and the back of the heads are meant to be cradled.
    Thank you for your care and kindness in creating these gentle creatures. We love to love and share them.
    They make us smile and happy.
