TERRI'S TOYS & OTHER SILLY STUFF
Hello and welcome to my fun world of
very silly animal characters.
When I started to design I wanted toys that reminded me of my own childhood so I’ve made lots of popular culture references from the 70s and 80s – especially my favourite tv shows and music. Bring back A-Team and Chips I say!
You may notice also that my toys are not gender specific – you won’t find masses of pink or blue in my work. My toys are for us animal lovers which can be anyone!
I like to use the softest, most tactile fabrics especially for babies. I use bamboo terry-towelling in my face-wipe puppets which is soft on kids’ faces and bamboo is very sustainable (a QI fact it grows about 3 cm per hour) – so it's great for the planet – hooray! I made the face-wipes into puppets too for those tricky kids that hate their face washed (don’t we all). I also use luxurious wool felts that absorb embroidery amazingly and make my hot water bottle covers more cosy to cuddle.
I hope you enjoy my silly world and it appeals to
the animal lover in you. Whether it’s a gift for a child, a new baby, Christmas
or for the big kid in you!
