All animals deserve love, even if they are plastic.

Gainesville, Florida

Announcement    Taking a short break.
HELLO FROM SUNNY FLORIDA!🌞 Happy to be back after a VERY long break from Etsy. Things have changed a bit in the last 12 years. I still love making jewelry (Recollections Jewelry on Facebook & Pinterest) and treasure hunting, but I’ve become obsessed with giving new life to old toys. Rudy is Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. It all started by chance one Christmas. I am a member of the Gainesville Artisans’ Guild and we sell fun, handmade ornaments every year. I made a few the first year and they were a huge hit. I spend all year crocheting the little sweaters. All embellishments are done in October and November.
All toys are donations, thrift store or flea market finds. They get a bath before being fitted with a custom hand crocheted sweater and accessories. Each one is unique and created to put a smile on your face. Hope you love them as much as I do.
This year is very different, of course. Sadly, there are no shows on the schedule. 💔
NOTE: RUDY’S RESCUE FOR HOMELESS TOYS are NOT designed for YOUNG CHILDREN. Small pieces could fall off creating a CHOKING HAZARD. Toys are designed for DISPLAY ONLY.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 15, 2020
All RUDY’S RESCUE FOR HOMELESS TOYS are made with upcycled animals. They are throughly sanitized for your protection. Many of the accessories are also upcycled. I use vintage accessories whenever possible.

Commissions are accepted as long as I have the requested animal in stock. It may take a while to find the animal of your choice, so production and shipping can be delayed.

Accessories are glued with E6000 or hot glue. Occasionally other glues will need to be used to ensure the item is securely attached. If you have an allergy to a specific glue, please message me.

RUDYSRESCUE toys are NOT designed for young children. Small pieces can fall off and create a CHOKING HAZARD. TOYS ARE FOR DISPLAY ONLY.
