Few people can resist the gorgeous, character-filled plush toys from Woo-men. The business, headed by Elaine and Pete Woodbridge, is on the move! Read more about their exciting new developments below:
Our toys have been tested for safety at SABS and found to be compliant with European Norm EN71 and universal standard ISO8124. They are non toxic and suitable for all ages. This is fantastic for export to Europe as we can now use the CE mark. It really sets us apart in the craft sector.
We have been at Design Indaba and SARCDA International shows this year and are off to the Grahamstown Festival in June. We will be part of the Fringe Exhibition with an exhibit entitled Free Range Friends. Woo-men is teaming up with Pete Woodbridge Illustration for this event. There will be toys for sale, as well as prints and canvasses by Pete.
We have also been selected to be part of the FIFA World Cup Craft Village on the Grand Parade and will be selling our sporty Soccer Ted toys there during June and July. We also hope our Woo Mama characters will be popular with all the visitors to South Africa.
One of our most popular characters with locals is Bed Head and we recently made the first large ones. These cuddlesome beauties retail for R375 and R450 directly from us or at Baraka in the Cape Quarter.
We recently made improvements to our Mr. Tiny stress ball character which is now selling well at Heartworks in the Gardens Centre.
We started a blog earlier this year in February and are enjoying using it to bring news and pictures to our readers. www.woomen.wordpress.com
