Recently, I received my first custom order that I really had to sit down and think hard about. Do I attempt to go with a realistic toy or a whimsical style toy? Will I make the thighs too fat and the boobs too small? Do I even make boobs? Will I veer so far off the mark that the toys look NOTHING like the pictures! If you haven’t guessed what these toys are then go look in the mirror and you will know what I’m making. Yup, people, not 1 but 2 people to make. Game on.
So what path did I take? The whimsical one of course. I received a few snaps of a couple of cool cats that were gifting themselves to their granddaughter…. wait hold up.. granddaughter? I had to do a double take, this pair are either vampires or they discovered the Philosopher’s Stone in a dark ally somewhere in London. Either way there is some kind of strange magic involved with this youthful pair.
What was that? Get on with it? Ok, ok keep your nappy on, I’m getting there. Introducing the first people dolls from Awaken the Toys, meet Nanny and Poppy.
Both these spunky monkeys were created for their gorgeous granddaughter Ellinora. Let’s talk about Nanny for a minute, who I believe is the mastermind behind having these toys created. I could be wrong and Poppy was working from the shadows feeding Nanny these ideas so subtly that she believes they’re her ideas…. but I’m usually right. She’s totally the mastermind.
Once upon a time there was a Nanny, she wasn’t your ordinary type of Nanny. She was the kind of Nanny that every kid wants, she knows that hair is suppose to be fun and colourful, that what you wear doesn’t need to be plain and boring, and that every girl needs a pair of kicks that make you feel like you are the hero of your own story. Perhaps she is why Ellinora has dreams of pink-tipped unicorns, rainbow flowers, swords made of candy and kick-butt Wonder Women.
Now everyone knows that a Nanny needs a Poppy, and here is ours. This Poppy is the kind that is always there for Ellinora, ready for a cuddle, a fancy dress showdown or as an extra guest at one of her tea parties. I have a feeling that there is nothing that this Poppy won’t do for his Ellinora, and that makes him a total hero here at Awaken the Toys HQ.
As you all know every Super Hero wears glasses, this is something that Ellinora knows well. When those glasses come off, Poppy is in Super Poppy mode and he will thrill her with his ability to scale large walls and save the day.
Ellinora has two super awesome role models. How will this story end? Who knows, it has only just begun and I am sure Ellinora will have all the adventures with her Nanny and Poppy and her mini-Nanny and mini-Poppy always there cheering her on. This story of two toys came from some Facebook spying, meeting this fabulous duo and my head. I have a feeling I’m not too far off the mark describing these two.
Love is the little things in life, like being the cheerleader for your family, or having a toy created in your likeness for your grandchild so they know that you are always there for them, even when you are far away.
