What could be more wonderful than real, made with love, and therefore a little living toys?
From what man did not make them - wooden and stone figurines of ancient times, ugly rag dolls stuffed with straw, our great-great-great-grandmothers, exquisite and very expensive collectible toys for adult children … And now the variety is completely amazing, it seems that there is absolutely everything is absolutely of any color and size, and it is not so easy to find anything worthwhile in this motley chaos.
And Nicole Gastonguay's toys catch the soul, even with all the other diversity.
Why not get yourself a toy cake? Or maybe a cutlet that sadly looks at you from a plate? Or a jar of big-eyed sardines? How about an animated milk carton, a teacup, a tube of glue? In extreme cases - adorable bugs, crabs, monkeys and other representatives of the fauna.
Nicole lives and works in New York. To pay the real bills and feed a real, non-toy dog, she works as a graphic designer for a large publishing house.
Many admirers write letters to her on the official website asking to share the patterns of knitting toys. And she has no schemes. She does things the way she does. In addition, when she repeats the same character several times without schemes, it turns out a little different each time, and she likes it. As well as the happy owners of new charismatic friends.
Say what you like, but it is incredibly difficult to resist these knitted creatures with button-like eyes and thread smiles, who will smile even wider and begin to fondle your hand affectionately. You and I are lucky that New York is not close. And how all New Yorkers do without them is an amazing mystery, yes.
