Dear Mummy, I have a crazy vivid imagination and a love of animals, a bit like Master Toy Maker Trudi Müller Patriarca. She spent her teenage years in Tarcento, northern Italy, sewing toys for herself and her friends, before Trudi toys was realised. Trudi is an Italian heritage brand and makers of quality plush toys.
From classic teddy bears to a troupe of circus animals and exotic jungle dwellers, Trudi toys took off in the 1960s. Over sixty years later, the Trudi menagerie continues to grow, providing children of all ages with instant friends to treasure for years to come.
I was kindly sent a gorgeous Panda (£19.99) and Unicorn (£19.99) to review! They are both medium sized soft toys, with super soft faux fur and realistic bead eyes. I love the little paws and the attention to detail on the stitching. All Trudi toys come with the hallmark bright red tag with the logo.
The Panda now sits proudly on my bed as my night-time companion and the Unicorn, which is also a hand puppet, is an awesome toy! I love the range of movement the puppet has and it’s perfect for small hands to act out imaginative play (and big folk can join in too as there is plenty of room for an adults hand to act out stories)
I’m sure you’ll agree that these are to be cherished and would make a welcomed addition to any family. I could see these soft toys adorning nurseries and would make lovely Christening keepsakes and baby shower gifts. With their natural, simple colours and sweet expressions they really are timeless.
The Trudi range of toys is massive too, from rocking horses and puppets, to small soft toy key charms, there really is something for everyones budget. My mummy has an eye on some of these soft toys for herself and loves the woodland animals!
These are definitely the soft toys of dreams, beautifully made, super soft and realistic looking and an heirloom to pass down to future generations. They are available from independent stores and from the Trudi UK Amazon store so pop over and have a look at their beautiful range!
