• The original Snoopy lamp

    Totally obsessed with this amazing LED Snoopy lamp. Depicting our fave Peanuts character, it stands at about 30cm tall and has four different light levels that can be adjusted with a dimmer.

You can buy Forky toys, but that seemed counterintuitive considering his providence – I’ve made Forkies with the children in the craft room at our last two school… READ MORE
