Create magic with Fantastic Toys
Christmas can be an expensive time of year for everyone. Seems like a never-ending spree of gift giving; hopefully receiving too. Think budget and be wallet friendly! If you have children or have gifts to give as a godparent, aunt or even as a friend, look no further than Fantastic Toys. Sounds fantastic already doesn’t it?
Remember what it felt to be a kid walking around in a toy store, beaming from head-to-toe and full of squeals of delight? What is great about Fantastic Toys is that age is not relevant; big and small children are included. Inspired by Japanese kawaii crafts, Timothy Haugen, the creative mind, has been drawing cartoons and making crafts of all kinds since he was a child.
Originally a toy maker, Timothy began his career by creating dollhouse miniatures. With all his passion, he digressed into designing soft toys. Recently he started to design printable paper craft, which is the perfect gift for all kids or collectors at a very affordable price. It is a simple process: buy the design you want, receive it as a PDF via email, print at home and follow the instructions.
This charming Mermaid Sandcastle Play Set has every detail possible. It is a seven-page PDF including a sand castle, three mermaids, Sandy, Shelly and Pearl, and their sea friends. All you need to do is have card paper, glue, scissors or scoring tool, ruler and toothpicks – voila! Your castle will appear!
Do you want to do a project with your chid? Try this Gnome Log Race Car Play Set. Gnomes, mushrooms and log car racing – it doesn’t get any better than this. Zoom around in these little paper log cars and see who wins.
Looking for some Christmas delights? There is this Peppermint Gingerbread Cottage Play Set, featuring Noel the elf, and her friends from the North Pole. She treats her reindeer with nibbles of gumdrops, or candy canes secretly stacked away in her pocket. You can collect an entire gingerbread village.
We all love Pinocchio! Timothy has created this marionette that really works. It is constructed like traditional marionettes, except this one is made of paper. You can pretend to make him walk or dance by moving the controller he hangs from.
To design your own quilt or soft toy, you always have the option to purchase fabric, such as this Mushroom Forest Lawn Kawaii Print. The print is available in different materials to suit your requirements; Kona® Cotton, quilt fabric, cotton voile, cotton silk, linen-cotton canvas, organic cotton knit, organic cotton sateen, upholstery twill and silk crepe de chine.
Voted as one of Etsy’s top ten toy sellers, Tim is based in Minneapolis. With a slogan “Print, make and play!” how can you resist these incredibly original designs? Shop away here!
