Mosa, how can she be so cute, and so difficult.
This small toy mushroom doll is handmade from organic eco freindly felt. Shroompers all have their roots in real mushrooms! We designed Mosa after a baby Amanita muscaria but her character haiku is based on our child. Mosa is hand made, hand cut and hand sewn entirely by me. Her outside is 100% natural wool felt. It's held together with cotton thread and Non-toxic fabric glue. She is stuffed with pure wool and has a Canadian penny in her base.
She is just under 3 inches tall.
The style and technique of the Shroomper dolls comes from the traditional Waldorf nature dolls. The design and characterization is original though. What we like is the philosophy of creative and imaginative play involving natural materials. So we have borrowed from the Steiner philosophy that believes simple toys made from natural materials are important for the wholesome development of young children. So Shroomper dolls are intentionally made simple with neutral expressions in order to encourage children to strengthen their own imagination and creativity.
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.
