Hip Products: Flying Star Toys

Florence Forrest (isn't that a great name!) is the creative force behind Flying Star Toys, based in Brisbane, Australia. These are not your average softies. Each toy is a limited edition work of art, and designed more for display than play.

I particularly adore Florence's collection of coastal birds of Australia, designed in collaboration with Brisbane artist Rachel Arthur. These would make wonderful gifts for any age and would not be out of place in either a grown-up beachside living room, or a child's nursery.

You can find Flying Start Toys online at the Etsy store. Check out new collections at the Flying Start Toys Website and find out more about the development of the toys on Florence's blog. Florence is also a member of the Umbrella Collective (see also paper boat press).

Shop online for kids products from great stores in the Australian Online Kids and Baby Store Directory.
