Loving the work of Brighton-based The Big Forest. Their signature creation is the artist bear, a handmade felt animal that comes beautifully packaged in its own box. They aren’t certified as toys as they have small parts, but how fabulous would this lion look perched on a shelf in a jungle-themed nursery? And at Â£35, he’d make a great heirloom gift.
Alternatively, for Â£19 you can take home three mini animals – I’m finding it hard to resist the charms of Bob Badger, Percy Polar Bear and Reg Raccoon.
