*** a note on shiipping to Australia*****
I'm really sorry that the cost to Australia is so high. In the past we would ship by surface, but the trip would sometimes take 70 days. We've switched to air, and the cost is very high. If you're in Australia and you'd prefer surface shipping to save on the cost, please just send me a message and I can let you know the cost for surface post and then put a personal listing up for you.

About

From Scratch

This is really how Fidoodle began. Recently I paged through an old sketch book (pre-fidoodle) and found illustrated people and sketches of small puppets and objects and puzzles that begin the story of Fidoodle.
I'm a designer with a background in fine art and education and a mother of two young daughters. Creative production which started with book binding, traditional woodcut and puppet building has meandered into puzzles and transformational dolls. And so slowly Fidoodle is growing up.
The goods that you see here are built in Canada from natural and recyclable materials like hardwood, cardboard, paper and cotton. Fidoodle's modern designs are constructed to ignite play and story-telling and the continuation of creation. Small details like a nervous boy sporting an inflatable duck in the summer wooden block set give tiny hints of the story that might lay under the image.
These objects are intended for everyone to play with. Blocks can become a tiny installation on a mantle that changes when anyone encounters it. They help all of us tell stories and often the littlest among us have such good stories because they get to practice.
Now we can all practice.
