Knitted Toys!

A friend recently sent me a link to Ebay where she'd found a set of knitted toys based on my characters from Who Flung Dung? up for auction. I was really flattered someone took the time to create these, so I placed a bid. I was outbid at the last minute unfortunately, but I contacted the seller, and she very kindly made me a fresh new set. In record time too, a mere two days or so! All the way from the UK my package arrived Tuesday, much to my delight. So now, here they are, the cast of Who Flung Dung, in wool!

Elephant & Rhinoceros
Vulture, as a finger puppet (my favourite!)
Gnu (my second favourite)
Crucial details...

Furley & Charlie, rear view
She even included a little knitted poo for Furley's head, a wonderful touch!

Unfortunately, the little knitted Charlie has already begun wreaking havoc with my other toys! Curse you Charlie!!!!

Thanks again Linny, I'll treasure these! :-)

  1. These mini soft toys are fantastic! I love the detail in each one. I think my favourite is Gnu :-) I'm not sure if the dinosaur is part of their team? He's a little scary! Carmel
