Looking for a great handmade stocking stuffer for kids and adults? 

Children and adults alike are likely to be taken in by Shima Itabashi’s quirky felt creatures, each with individual characters and stories all their own. Each is handcrafted and made from 100 percent wool bought from a local shop in Vancouver.
