Today the Felt.Buzz Spotlight falls on Coldham Cuddlies.
Coldham Cuddlies is run by Isobel Morrell, who has been making these toys and mascots since the 1950’s. She has had an Etsy shop since 2010. What is fantastic is she uses patterns she has been collecting for 60 years so her toys have a real vintage feel. The toys are made using unusual faux fur and colourful plush fabrics. They are all stuffed with polyester fibre, meeting all international standards – and are made in a totally smoke-free environment. They are long-lasting, cuddly, safe for everyone from birth to the Third Age.
Isobel has a good internet presence, she uses facebook, twitter and has a blog as well as her Etsy shop. She certainly uses these mediums really well, and it is worth befriending and following her – she retweets and is fun to interact with.
So if you are looking for a safe vintage toy go and check out Coldham Cuddlies.
