Meet Musca
Musca looks different but is just like you and me.

This mushroom soft sculpture is based on the Amanita Muscaria, the classic toadstool. All the Shroompers are designed and hand sewn by me and my husband (He actually designs, draws and internets). We take our time designing each one starting from sketching, making prototypes and figuring out all the patterns as a team of two. We take inspiration from traditional Waldorf dolls but the design and characterization is original. We are borrowing from the Steiner philosophy which believes that simple toys made from natural materials are important for the wholesome development of young children. We also support the philosophy of creative and imaginative play involving natural materials. We designed the Shroomper dolls and toys to be part of a world that is intentionally made simple with neutral expressions in order to encourage children to strengthen their own imagination and creativity.

How big is Musca? He is just under 3 inches tall.

I use only 100% natural wool felt (Not a synthetic blend), cotton thread and 100% wool stuffing. Some features are attached with Non-toxic fabric glue. There is also reclaimed cardboard and a Canadian penny in each base. Wool felt is hypoallergenic and resistant to bacteria. Wool is also a eco-friendly and sustainable naturally renewable fibre.

Shroompers are for children over three or the child in you.

*** Cleaning your felt Shroompers ***
1. Use low stick scotch tape. Just gently press and pull to lift away dust and lint. Usually this is all you need to do to freshen up your little felt friends.

2. If there are still small stains then use a tooth brush to gently brush away any dirt from the surface. Then moisten the toothbrush with water and a mild soap and gently rub away the stain. (if this doesn't remove it don’t keep scrubbing, you might damage the felt).

3. Blot with a soft dry cloth or towel and leave to air dry. do not apply heat.

That's all you need to know about washing our felt dolls
