Etsy Artist of the Week

It's all about fun this week!! This week's artist is ZadyBall. Click on the pic below for the entire line of fun fabric toys!!

A message from the artist:

This fabric reminds me of "Good and Plenty" candy - the yummy candy covered licorice.

A Zadyball™ is designed first of all with babies in mind. They are soft to hold and cuddle, and have lots of strings to grab and rub. Lots of babies have a “lovey” and many times the item they pick has something for them to rub – whether it’s the corner of a blanket or the nose on a teddy bear. The knotted ends of the strings are great to fulfill baby’s need for something to rub!

Why Babies love them:1. Easy to grab and hold on to from a very young age2. Good for teething3. Soft to cuddle4. Knotted ends are very soothing to rub5. Makes a great lovey

Why Toddlers love them: 1. Once a lovey, always a lovey2. Soft to cuddle (everyone loves soft things!)3. Easy to throw and catch, especially when you are just learning how

Why Mommies love them:1. Babies love them and we love our babies!2. Easy to clean, just throw in the wash!3. Safe!4. Soft enough that you don’t have to worry about things breaking or anyone getting hurt when it is thrown around

This looks like a great toy for another reason, too - the pattern has a strong color contrast which is easier for infants to see and supposedly actually helps their vision to develope! This is why I love etsy - quality items made by people who actually care about what they're making!
