Book and Wooden Toy Bundle
These Montessori style, hand carved puppy & bunny toys are based on my illustrations of Bear and Mighty Smols, which draw inspiration from their real life interactions.
The journey from the illustration to finding a woman artist who could create them, led me to a smol wood workshop on the banks of the Ural River. Daria, the lady who runs the workshop started making toys when she became a mother. She wanted to create pieces for her children out of natural materials that are non toxic and child safe and integrates aspects of Waldorf education.
Each piece is handmade in her workshop with loving little details to bring you a “smol delight”.
Hope you love these gems

The Bear Hugs Book
The Bear Hugs Book
Inspired by the true story of love and friendship between Bear the puppy and Hugs the bunny
This heartwarming tale is told through actual photographs of Bear & Hugs and illustrations that were inspired by their interactions.
This book is about kindness & empathy towards others.
The story : Bear is looking for his super power and Hugs bunny helps him discover what it is.
Bear has an innate ability to empathize with another’s situation and treat them with kindness & affection. He is guided by these inherent qualities when he meets animals along his journey and makes them feel cared for, lessens their despair and uplifts them.
His superpower is that he is empathetic, warm and considerate towards others.
In Japanese, there is one word for it “omoiyari”, and that is the philosophy behind everything Bear Hugs
