I'd title this post "Softie P**n", but it would only attract an unwelcome following. There really is no better way to describe the toys at New York's Takashimaya department store. I snapped photos until they politely asked me to stop. Here is a favorite - two wool felt monkeys nesting in a puddle of hand embroidered linens.
In the interests of protecting the ideas of handmade toy makers everywhere, I will not post the rest of the photos on the blog. If we are friends on Facebook, there is an album there you can look at. If we're not friends on Facebook, perhaps we should be?
