Hand Knitted Animals in Shakespearean Outfits 2


These collectable items are as much for adults as for children. We’ve made soft toys of two of Shakespeare’s best-loved characters. There’s a rabbit version of Malvolio from Twelfth Night, lovelorn and cross-gartered, and Bottom the Donkey from A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Both toys have been hand knitted in organic cotton. The toys are CE certified for age three years plus. In this listing, we are selling them individually. The rabbit is about 36cm or 14 inches tall, the donkey is 32cm or twelve and a half inches tall.

All of our soft toys are hand made by a knitting community we set up in Southwest China more than fifteen years ago. The wonderful knitters there are highly-skilled artisans, producing these toys with great care and love.

The yarn is pure organic cotton. The stuffing is Oeko-Tex certified polyester. In most circumstances, we ship them in a simple, brown paper bag inside a card envelope.
