Cuddly Characters

Woolbuddy stuffed animals—and stuffed animal kits—are adorable, quirky characters that will melt your heart. Founder Jackie Huang designed the first one when his first child was born. Wanting to create a gift that reflected his imaginative work as a 3D animator, Jackie experimented with some leftover felt. From there, he kept on creating different personality-packed creatures out of 100% wool. Want your Woolbuddy fully finished? No problem. Or, if you want to create your own, there’s a DIY kit with felting needles, instructions, and all the felt you need. It makes a fun bonding project with a child, grandchild, niece, nephew . . . but make sure you’re in charge because the needles are sharp. A little loop on top is perfect for hanging your Woolbuddy up in a nursery or playroom, or even on the tree. Whether cheerfully displayed or sitting on your lap, these cuddly buddies bring smiles wherever they go.

    @priya The recommended age is 8 and older. Supervision is advised, as the needles are sharp!

    @Andy Once you learn how to needle felt it is very easy to make any animal. you can use our moose kit because the color is the same as the squirrel.

    These items are adorable! But one question, since they are made of wool, and a lot of little critters such as moths and other tiny bugs like wool, how can we keep them looking as nice as the day we buy them? I'm afraid to buy anything wool these days, including clothing because sooner or later, bugs will come and eat little holes in them.

    Hi Karen, that's a great question. Luckily, because they are so adorable, you will likely be keeping them out for all to see. This is a great defense against moths and other bugs as they tend to steer clear of the light and head toward clothes or items that are packed away.

    Of course, simply keeping your Woolbuddy clean with a brush can do the trick as well.
