Friends in the Leaves

Lion, softie, soft toy, African animal, plush stuffed toy, savannah bedroom

Meet Savannah the Lion. This soft toy would make a wonderful gift for a child or a baby and would also be great as a savannah/ African themed nursery decoration. It will be made to order just for you.

Current turnaroud: 4-5 weeks.

Savannah the Lion is a beautifully soft plushie made of Minky (plush) material. The eyes and nose are made of 100% felt. Its legs are tied into knots, making it perfect for little fingers to explore and play with.

This lion toy is part of a range I designed called 'The Soft Ones'. I have been making toys for a while now, but in the back of my mind there's always been one type of toy I wanted to achieve. A 'doudou'. 'Doudou' is the French word for softie. But to me it means more than that. It evoques softness and cuddles, and squishiness and best friend. It means first toy, adventures outdoor, and snuggles in bed. I trully hope to have achieved this with the Soft Ones.

The Soft Ones are also gender neutral. With all my creations I try to avoid stereotypes as I believe that children should make up their mind independantly. For this reason the Soft Ones' names are unisex (eg Rusty, Cuddles, etc...) so that you or the child can choose.

***Other information:***

This soft toy is CE certified which means that it has passed all the safety tests (flammability, tension, chemicals) required by the EN71 European Standards. As such it is safe from birth and can also be washed. I use the best quality material I can find. In this instance the minky material is by Shannon, a renowned manufacturer of minky and a leader in the market. The 100% wool felt I use is long lasting and won't bobble as easily as acrylic blends.

Savannah the Lion measures about 29 cm high (roughly 11 inches) and will come with a washing bag to help it stay nice and soft if you pop it in the washing machine. If you have time though, handwashing is even better (I tell my daughter that her favourite toy is having a bath whenever it needs washing. One day I even put it in the sink with some of her bath toys!).

Please note: each toy is handmade by myself. As such there might be some slight differences between the toy you receive and the pictures above but rest assured that it will be just as beautiful and made with care.
