Etsy's BigStuffed shop specializes in artisanal toys like this range of stuffed animals that are inspired by gorgeous sea creatures. From sperm whales and sardines to stingrays of different shapes and sizes, these ocean-themed toys are perfect for young children and babies who will learn about underwater life when playing with them.
Because of their soft, fabric construction, the toys are safe for kids of all ages and will appeal to fans of contemporary design. While these particular stuffed animals are designed for children, they will also impress collectors and can even double as adorable cushions when displayed on one's sofa.
Following in the footsteps of fashion labels, toy manufacturers are creating kid-focused products that will also appeal to adults. Whether borrowing from mature products or highlighting artistic design details, today's toys aim to merge aesthetics with educational qualities.
