Announcement    Hello :)
Thank you for visiting. Jo’s Handmade Friends are actually for everyone, not just for kids. They are an ideal gift for anyone, family or friends and for any occasion where someone needs a smile. Most kids like teddy bears, dolls and other cuddly, plush toys but adults shouldn’t have to do without some love. Why should we? They help us express our feelings, take us back to the safety and warmth of childhood; that magic place of unworried memories where everything is easy and carefree. When I walk down the street and see a lovely special plush toy in a shop, I grab it and give it a squeeze. I have my own little collection of treasured teddies. Think about how you feel when someone gives you a plush toy – you get a warm feeling inside and a smile on your face…they never disappoint. Getting a present like that means you are loved. The act of passing a toy from one persons arms to the next is a joy and a responsibility, you love it the same way that they do. I believe this kind of gift is deeply meaningful. My products bring happiness and joy. My favorite part about what I do is doing something that gives me a lot of happiness, a feeling of personal achievement and doing something that brings happiness to others at the same time.

    Absolutely love this rabbit. It was despatched straight away and even the packaging was lovely! Perfect for my little girl, also a great idea for a newborn gift no one else will have thought of, and with lots of options easy to pick for a girl or boy. Thanks to Joanna for this lovely item.

"Jo's handmade friends" little helpers who makes everyone happy :)

The story of "Jo's handmade friends".

At first Jo's handmade friends were created to raise money to help support children with heart disease, organ transplantation, cancer and other serious illnesses. Sewing and making handmade items has always been my personal 'secret' hobby but there never seemed to be enough time to make all my dreams come true. Eventually as a part of my commitment to helping these kids I decided to start making my friends. They are carefully hand made with great love and passion. Each one is unique and original, designed by myself for you. Making them gives me a lot of pleasure and happiness.

They are ideal gifts for friends and family, "little helpers" who make everyone happy.
