so cute, but why so pricey?

so few of them are good for vegans. If I were one of those types who use this site, I would say "I am weeping at your failure and your heartlessness and support for animal cruelty"

but I won't, because I am me. and I make fun of people who would say "boycott etsy because people sell fur,feather and wool products on that site!"

They may be cute but why bother to BUY a handmade toy when you can buy the materials and make it yourself? If you're not confident about the results then buy a kit with all the necessary parts included which you can then put together yourself.
Not only will you feel proud, but the child will have a toy that's not just cloth and stuffing but also has your time and love added to it. Even if it's for a baby or toddler too young to make the connection, the parents will appreciate the extra effort you made.

I do a fair amount of soaking and hand-washing of items that I want to treat with care.
