takokids' Shop Announcement

Featured in the June/July 2011 issue of Time Out New York Kids, I warmly welcome you to Tako Kids! All hand crocheted + designed by me, my plush finger puppets are quirky + unique with octopus arms! Everything is original - I don't use any patterns except the ones I make up myself. Many of my creatures are handmade with upcycled, recycled & vegan materials. All of my toys are made by me with great care in my "studio" (aka 1/5 of our living room) in Jackson Heights, Queens, N.Y.C.

TAKO KIDS makes imaginative, radically simple toys for children. I strive to make toys that are race and gender-neutral, promote tolerance, and eschew the beauty ideal of Barbie and G.I. Joe. Plus, aren't they just so cute?!

Why TAKO? Tako is Japanese for octopus. I specialize in making one-of-a-kind octopus plush finger puppets, as well as other cute puppets that are ready to make a home on your fingers!

You'd like a custom finger puppet? Send me a convo and let's figure out the details:

I ship daily via USPS Priority Mail® Small Flat Rate Box (1-5 business days) + Priority Mail® International Small Flat Rate Box (6-10 business days).
