recycle packaging Easy to display / Receive a little extra / Good to not waste The packaging is printed on recycled cardboard. To not waste it by throwing it away, each packed item has a small surprise on the backside! For example, the dummyholders come with Mouse Phil featured on the backside. You can cut him out, get his ears in the right position and then give him a tail!

A charming world of tiny, cuddly friends, loved by kids and grown ups When Dutch designer Esther Schuivens was reunited with her long-lost friend Sofie, in 2003, Sofie was just a drawing, well hidden away on a piece of paper in Esther’s parents’ attic. Esther was touched by Sofies’s humor and simplicity and used the charming drawing, which she had made when she was just 4 years old, as the model for her very first Esthex doll.

Esther Schuivens was born in Sittard, in the south of Holland, and studied art textiles at the Academy of Visual Arts in Maastricht. After graduating in 2000 as a textile artist, she began showing her work in art exhibitions throughout Europe. The popularity of her creations inspired Esther to start her company, Esthex, in 2003, to create touchable art for young people.

This was just the beginning for a growing family of dolls, stuffed animals, and other delightful toys. Many members of the Esthex family followed in the years to come, each with its own personality: Phil the mouse, who shakes his rattle; Simon the snale, who shares tunes from his musicbox; Hendrik and Henny owl, who dangle and bounce from fingertips; and Anna Ballerina, who dances for her friends in the morning. Sofie, the first born, always wears a hat and striped leggings, a feature that is characteristic of many creatures in the collection.

Her family of dolls, backpacks, mobiles, rattles, and other fabric creations now delight children around the world.

Every Esthex product is made of soft and cuddly fabric, and many dolls and animals have long, thin legs that invite childreneven the littlest baby hands- to hold and play and grasp.Together, all can travel in a cool backpack to take to school or daycare.

Today Esther lives in Belgium, with her husband and their three daughters, in a restored old house, where her doll collection rules the playroom and sheep can be seen grazing in the backyard. Esther’s menagerie of cuddly friends are made in Thailand by sewing machine or by hand and are sold worldwide. The Thai workplace is ICTI -certified, a proud recipient of the toy industry’s ethical-manufacturing certificate that ensures safe and humane workplace environments for toy-factory workers worldwide.
