Fiskars' micro tip scissors are easy on the hands due to the spring action locking system and you can easily manouvre them and cut into small curves and shapes.

A new Toybox Teddies & Friends Kit


Available online soon!

Antique-style clowns were the inspiration for Eunice's latest creation – Beartolini – a one-of-kind hand-dyed Steiff-Schulte viscose ted with rayon ribbon wrist ruffles, rosette pom poms on his feet and a looped ribbon collar to add a little flair. Although he looks pretty innocent and laid-back, don't be deceived - he's the one who opens the toybox at night and gets up to circus antics, entertaining and enthralling all the other Toybox Teddies & Friends! His unique hand-dyed viscose "coat" and trim were designed to impart a certain olde-worlde look to him. He has glass eyes with ultrasuede eye-backing detail, is 5-way jointed and has a handful of plastic pellets to add weight to his tummy and feet. His mock suede pointed and brimmed hat with pom poms adds to his appeal.

We personally think his departure from clowning around in the Big Tent circus world is a great boost for the Toybox Friends – now they can look forward to non-stop entertainment at night when the lights go out!
