Fada Moranga loves Fantastic Toys!

Timothy Haugen, the author

"I love designing and making toys! It allows me to combine all my favorite artistic activities such as sculpting, drawing and sewing.

My career as a toy maker began over 5 years ago making miniature dolls and puppets. Soon after that I discovered the world of plush and quickly became enamored with the awesome cuteness.

My toys seem to bring out the antsy pants feeling of being a kid in a toy store. Whether it may be just a smile or squeals of delight, they make people happy. Inspired by Japanese crafts my kawaii (japanese for super cute) softies are my spin of the indie plush craze.

Each collectible toy is handmade from my original patterns. My soft toys may start as a sketch or just an idea. The process of making a pattern can be at times difficult and may take several attempts to achieve the desired look of a character. Felt is the material I mainly work with. I enjoy felt because its easy to work with and has a long history in the toy industry.

I have imagined a world of sweet forest dwellers that include forest folk, fawns and critters with a playful and whimsical spirit.

Whenever possible I use eco friendly materials to construct my plush. Because some toys have small parts they are best suited for display. They are not recommended for small children. I hope you enjoy my toys as much as I like making them."
