Plum Pudding ~ Review and Giveaway

Plum Pudding

At Plum Pudding Amanda believes it's okay to play with your food! In fact, it's fantastic fun and who could resist playing with the soft and whimsical needle felted vegetables and culinary delights Amanda creates? Wool felting is an art I have been eager to try for some time. The soft sculptural pieces are far more pleasant to the touch than the cold hard plastic play food you find in the stores and the natural wool fibres are an environmentally safe alternative to plastic play things. There is something about the soft, fuzzy look and feel of wool felting that appeals to ones soul and pulls at ones heartstrings! Plum Pudding offers imaginative playthings for children without the crazy "bells and whistles" of department store toys!

We received a quaint and cozy home for the magical garden friends my little ones invent! My girls are very much into fairies and magic and I find their imaginations precious and endearing. I truly want to cultivate the development of their imaginations with creative toys such as the Gnomes House from Plum Pudding. This precious little piece is needle felted Peace Fleece and corriedale wools. If you are not familiar with Peace Fleece it is a company committed to helping "historic enemies to cooperate and prosper through trade"! I love the idea of buying an environmentally responsible toy which develops young imaginations and inadvertently also helps to promote peace! Amanda of Plum Pudding creates these little treasures unique to each order and can custom make almost any felting creation you wish. If the fairies in your forest prefer a blue mushroom--or maybe pink--Amanda will custom make one to your preferences. In fact you can ask her to custom create almost any felted play piece!

Plum Pudding offers felted play food, balls, and even hair accessories but that's not all! Plum Pudding also carries lavish, colour rich play silks perfect for your child's exciting productions, dance numbers, and whatever else appears on their playbill. Every visitor will want front row tickets to your children's performances or be eager for even a small bit part!

The wool balls are not only great toys but can also be used as drier balls--the white ones are best suited for this purpose.
What other wonderful treasures could Plum Pudding possibly offer? Organic handpainted children's t-shirts of course! And what if I were to tell you one lucky Northern Mama reader will be receiving an adorable organic cotton t-shirt for a little one he/she loves? Yes, it's true!
Win a handpainted size 24 months 100% organic cotton t-shirt from Plum Pudding!
