fuzzy felts

I’ve spent my Sunday afternoon swooning over my beloved fuzzy felts.



I don’t think these sorts of toys are ever truly appreciated by children. I know for one that I never took much notice of them when I had them as a child. I don’t have many memories of playing with these, hence why they are still in their original box. I think I’m missing a few pieces, but overall it’s pretty much a joyful set.



It’s the ‘Lets play house’ theme, my boyfriend said how he had once had the hospital set as a child. It’s got me a little intrigued to know what other sets where around at the time.



I love the illustrations on each single piece and love how all the girl characters are wearing such pretty pinafores, even when they're doing chores around the house.



I am slightly having a bit of a toy phase lately. Discovering old treasures and uncovering second hand treats is pretty much where I’m finding inspiration.

  8. No way are those Fuzzy Felts! My favourite toy of the late 1960's/ early 1970's looked nothing like those. I'm amazed by how much they've changed from being an arty kind of plaything to what they are today.
    My favourite was a set called "Fantasia" with a black background and psychadelic shapes. xxx
