Hi my name is Vanessa.

I think every child (and adult) should have a toy as unique and one of a kind as they are! One of my favorite childhood toys was a raggedy ann that my mom made for me. She was different and special, and I felt special to have her.

I really love fiber. I love sweaters. I love stuffed creatures. Hofmonsters combines these loves into a soft cuddly one of a kind MONSTER!

****I am more than happy to do custom work!****
Please contact me if you have a special monster or animal you would like made.
**** I can arrange for your sweaters to be incorporated in the creation! ****

All materials used are of the highest quality. All sweaters are NATURAL FIBER. All sweaters are RECYCLED. All buttons are either VINTAGE or ANTIQUE. Any fur used is vintage, Hofmonsters does NOT endorse the killing of animals. Stuffing is either ECO FIBER FILL (corn based) or CLEAN WOOL.
All monsters are meticulously, lovingly hand-stitched together.

Hofmonsters makes great efforts to be environmentally conscious.
All of my packaging is either re-usable or recyclable, I use PCW (post consumer waste) recycled paper and re-use shipping containers whenever possible. I am always looking for ways to minimize Hofmonster's carbon footprint!
