Big news! Just this week I received the first factory made samples of the Toonsie pouch - this is after many rounds of pictures and revisions back and forth.
I am quite happy with the way it has turned out. There are a couple things that still need adjustment. For example, the zipper pull is way too big. But overall the quality and look/feel is very much in line with what I had hoped for. This new factory I am working with specializes in plush baby toys and has been very pleasant to work with and extremely responsive.
I'm excited to get to the point where I can approve a sample for production. Hopefully very soon!
Including some pictures of the factory samples for you here. One has Jingle Bells recorded to it, the other has the story of Hannukah.
Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season, and New Year!
