We're gonna be famous Ma!

Hey Mildura folk! Have you seen our ad on Win TV?

For the people who haven't seen, this is for you!

It is best to pause at the start to let it buffer, or...watch it twice to see it at it's best!

We encourage you to join in with the hand clapping!

Herbert & Friends

We would love to introduce you to our new friends who arrived yesterday after a long journey from Sydney! They are settling in nicely and investigating the shop.

Robin and Sophie the owls enjoying a cuppa ($77 each)

 Ronaldo and Ruben the foxes guarding our pot plant ($88 each)

Norris & Olivia the yeti's working out ($88 each)

Penelope the turtle looking for the perfect spot to hang out ($77)

She's not sure if this is it....

Rinn the Racoon has already left to live with a lovely lady, he sure was a charmer!

We are so pleased to have this bunch with us in the shop. Their maker Torunn from Herbert & Friends does a fantastic job in making these softies, she has paid so much attention to detail and has given us some info on each one so you know their story. We love them all. xx

Check out this video of the making of a synthesiser by Torunn, she is one very talented lady.
