  • Amanda Schwartz

    Owner, Creator

    Hello! My name is Amanda. I'm an animal loving, art geek who loves to draw, sew and garden. I live with my amazing husband and our 3 cats, who make life pretty interesting. I couldn't imagine a day without those little weirdos!

  • Hajnalka Gyoni

    Owner, Creator

    Hajnalka is the creator of our adorable felt catnip toys! (And my mom!) She loves to craft, sew, go hunting for vintage treasures and spend time with her kitty Dcup.

  • Dcup

    Toy Tester

    Dee is a sweet, shy little lady who loves watch birds out the window, and hang out with her human. She tends to hide when strange people are around, but if your patient and kind, she may pop out for a quick hello!

  • Charlie

    Toy Tester

    Charlie is our wild child! He's all about adventures and getting into mischief. Despite being a trouble maker sometimes, he's also a little love muffin! He loves to snuggle. <3

  • Mika


    Mika is a sock stealing ninja with a whole lot of sass! Despite being aloof, she LOVES to play, and is the most loyal companion anyone could ever ask for.

  • Murdoch

    Toy Tester

    Murdoch is a big, fluffy marshmallow who loves being lazy, crumb hunting and munching down on grass. He's a bit shy, but if you talk to him sweetly and give him butt scratches, he'll be your friend forever!

  • Jonathan Wenek


    Jonathan is my awesome husband. He builds amazing props for our shows and helps us out with all the "behind-the-scenes" stuff. You can usually find him woodworking, biking, playing video games or lost in a good book.
