a crafty magical menagerie

My mum came to stay in the weekend and brought with her a lovely pressie for Amelie that I just had to share- this amazing box of cardboard animals that you punch out and put together (by Japanese designer/illustrator Junzo Terada).


Each animal comes with its own envelope (with the instructions) so you have somewhere to put the pieces if you want to take them apart again. Aren't the colours and patterns just gorgeous?!  Mum bought them from a book shop in Napier but you can find them here and here.
And here's another crafty animal- a ribbon taggie hedgehog toy from Cherish Child in Mt Maunganui- isn't it cute!

What lovely presents! I have had those animals on my wish list for a while, may have to move them to the top of the list :)

Brilliant. I had a nice weekend seeing my Mummy too, but she bought some way out there gifts for my children, not blog worthy at all. Love Posie

They are gorgeous - they wouldn't last long in our house though! Love the hedgehog - very sweet!

I love it! And you mean I can get it in NZ?? How neat is that for a change. I'll have to have a look out for it. What shop did she find it in? Have a great day!!
