Jenny has made two toddler backpacks for our daughters, one with an owl, another with a duck. I'm a huge fan of both her and the backpacks. Jenny spent a lot of time perfecting each backpack with me, making sure I was getting something I loved. Of course, I can find a cheaper backpack, but I wanted these to be special childhood keepsakes for our girls and frankly I hate the look of most toddler backpacks. Jenny has an eye for simple, adorable, classic design that shows in her work. Both backpacks are incredibly well made. Our 3 year old has used her's for almost two years and it looks brand new. We just gave our 22 month old another. I would highly recommend Josh & Teo to anyone who wants personalized, cheery interactions with a seller and a high quality product.

This is seriously the most useful baby item I own. My 7-month-old loves his Sophie and loves dropping it. This has saved us having to contstantly de-germ it when we're out & about.

Baby Stuff that is Practical and Stylish

Sewing is my passion and after 2 kids and 16 years working in the IT Industry, I quit my job. I decided to focus my time on the three things I love the most: My kids and sewing!

In the daytime, the kids and I go on adventures in the wonderful city of Toronto. At night, I design and sew for my shop Josh & Teo.
I love sewing toy leashes and toddler backpacks.

Who runs the shop? I do it all... fabric sourcing, supplies, postal runs, sewing, designing, bookkeeping, inventory, etc.

What inspires me? My kids are the inspiration for the things that I design. As they grow, my shop grows too. For example, when my son started riding a tricycle, I designed a tricycle bag.

How did you choose your name? I merged the names of my kids to make my shop name. I love my kids!

When do I have the time? I make time for the things that I love to do. I do not like to mop the floor (so hubby does it instead). I also like to blog about the kids and our adventures:

Thanks for stopping by to read my story.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Please contact me immediately if you have any questions regarding your purchase. I stand behind my products and always conduct a quality check prior to mailing. You shouldn't experience any problems with your product. However, if there is a defect in workmanship with the product I will gladly replace it for you. All sales are final.
I accept PayPal. Products will be shipped to the address listed in Paypal after verification of payment through PayPal.
I ship with Canada Post, ground-based mail. All of my packages are mailed from Toronto, Canada. If you require express delivery, please contact me.

Additional policies and FAQs
Toy Leash Details:
Keep Sophie The Giraffe™ and other toys clean with a Toy Leash. Attach one end to a stroller, a highchair, shopping cart, etc... the other side attaches to the toy or snack cup.

I use SnapSource snaps which meet the requirements of the CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Commission Improvement Act). SnapSource snaps are more durable than those found in sewing stores. They are designed with long prongs which provide a better "grip" onto fabric, allowing fasteners to remain securely in place, wash after wash!

As with most other accessories used with young children, do not leave your child unsupervised with this toy leash. Inspect prior to each use. This leash is not a teether toy - please do not allow your child to teethe on the leash. To clean, please spot clean or toss in the washer/dryer.

I will send you the giraffe wrapping instructions as a picture attachment. If you require it again, please convo or email me at joshandteo [!at]

I will specify in the listing if the item in the photo is the actual item for sale.
For all other listings, please allow for slight variances from what is shown in the made to order photos as fabric placement/pattern may vary slightly.

Custom Orders:
I also accept custom orders. Once we have completed discussions and an order has been placed, I reserve the right to refuse additional changes to the design if the product has already been created.


I also provide wholesale upon request.
