If your cat dreams of a life by the sea, a skeletal fish (pictured on the left) by Gush 4 Plush (visit the blog) or perhaps a tin of crocheted sardines by Handmade Cottage might feed its seafaring spirit.
For the traditionalist, Spellwell offers a de’cat’pitated mouse, pigeon and fish trio pictured at the top (she also offers a robot head option for vegans. The cat with a more adventurous palate might appreciate a felt Paramecium, a Green Egg or a stick of TNT by Caelista.

What young child wouldn’t be thrill to find this charming toy under the tree on Christmas morning? The “Santa-Bearer-of-Doom-and-Destruction” or as it’s listed in the catalogue: “Father Christmas Robot,” can be ordered from Toy Post.
To be fair, this toy is listed for adult collecters only. It was made using traditional methods for tin plating, and does not meet current child safety regulations, sorry kids.
Toy post is actually a very cool UK based shop that specializes in old-fashioned and traditional toys and games. They have a fabulous selection of wooden and old tin plate and metal toys too. But this guy…he definitely tops the freaky list!
