Handmade in Dallas, Texas, the felt food items from Bees Felt Market by Heidi Marie are created with only the best intentions in mind. The felt used to create the ''play'' food is made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles (thus preventing hundreds of plastic bottles from filling landfills) whereas any items requiring stuffing are filled with 100% polyester fiberfill. Cut and assembled by hand, they are then sewn together both by machine and hand; ensuring for d along life of durability in children’s hands.
Varying from berries, tacos and short ribs to a bag of potato chips, each item and detail is one of a kind. True works of art are created in each combination where children’s favourites such as spaghetti and meatballs are given a twist as now large brown meatballs can adorn ravioli, tortellini, fettuccini or farfalle. You take your pick!
In the mood for something sweet? Bees Felt Market features a large array of felt food doughnuts: twists, jelly doughnuts, cake doughnuts, long johns and pon de rings - all without the sugary, syrupy mess!
After playtime is over, Bees Felt Market has a felt shopping bag where all the food items can be stored away, keeping play areas clutter free. Featuring the well known recycle symbol, Bees Felt Market once again goes to show how ethically minded these felt pieces are too.
Bright, soft, child friendly and ultimately educational, we’re happy to see such a simple idea create such a big success; we at Yatzer will definitely be playing with our food!
