I love these quirky collectible toys by Los Angeles artist Chika. Designed especially for Maher Dry Goods, these are so intricately detailed and done entirely by hand. “Details are appliquÃ©d and embroidered including french knot pupils and eyelashes.” Lovely stuff.
Stella the Squirrel, $90. Bruno the Bulldog, $84. Donatello the Deer, $84.
These remind me of all those vintage Steiff toys that my mom has. They were all sorts of animals, do you know which one I mean?
Thanks so much for the kind post! i love these little wonders as well, and I can’t believe Chika isn’t blind from those teeny tiny stiches!
Be well, Robert
