I don’t know, maybe I am going soft in my old age or maybe I’m feeling nostalgic as I watch my own children grow up way too quickly? Whatever the reason, I’m smitten with the sweet creative world of Popetse Toys.

French designer and toy maker Amandine Metton recently launched her new website and webshops (she’s also on etsy), filling them with gorgeous woodland friends. Her new pocket collection features an assortment of endearing soft sculptures named Apple, Happy Johnny and Sven, all styled very beautifully.

Popetse Toys are unique, 100% handmade and limited-edition. They are crafted with love, always paying great attention to detail and the origins of the materials. The vast majority of Amandine’s fabrics and fillers are organic, or failing that, recycled. All the fabrics used for her little creatures are washed with ecological and hypoallergenic products too.

If you are looking for a special gift for a christening, birthday or simply to show how much you care, Popetse Toys could well be for you. Although they are not suitable for very young children, they certainly have an heirloom quality and would add a unique touch to a nursery, bedroom or play space.

Like I said, I’m in love!
