Another of our favorite finds from Toy Fair was The Piutre Company, these handmade magnificient stuffed animals speak for themselves, but the enthusiasm of the companies fans are contagious. We spoke first with two friends of the company who had attended Toy Fair just to show their support! This company has been family owned for almost four decades. It was sold to a larger company in the 1990's, but the family bought it back when they felt their product was diminishing. All their designs are made in Italy and they can even make them to order if you prefer, want the polar bear looking in another direction, or the dog lying down in a different way- they can make those alterations for you. It was really exciting in an ocean of large companies making disposable creations in factories unseen, to meet companies striving to continue to preserve the art in toy making.
