Every cdbdi toy is lovingly designed and handmade by Vicky at home in London.

I started making toys because i couldn't find any British-made, non mass-produced dragons for our boys. The inspiration for the shrews came from my favourite book as a child, Shrewbettina's Birthday which had beautiful illustrations and no words! The dachshunds were inspired by a much-loved one at home called Noodle. Rabbits and duck-billed platypus are all part of an ever growing collection.

I softly felt the wool which comes from Yorkshire to create a cuddly, quality finish that is built to last and be handed down to the next generation.

Every toy can be personalised with a hand-embroidered name for your big or small loved-one for £5 more.

This makes a truly unique christening, birthday, Christmas, Easter or anniversary present.

For another £5 your toy can come with a personalised scroll from the buyer.
