I’m really excited to share my friends’ new crafty endeavours, Love & Dumplings. Started by four friends, Bonnie, Margaret, Tak and In Heun, Love & Dumplings is a little company that creates handmade plush toys. Love & Dumplings is built upon the idea that Love is best when shared and therefore, their handmade plush toys are sold in sets of two or up.
Love & Dumplings toys are quite quirky and they’re one of a kind. The idea is that when you buy a set, you keep a toy for yourself and then you give the remaining toys to the person (or people) you Love! Here’s how it works :
- Every time you look at your toy, you’re reminded that there is someone out there who you Love.
- Every time the person you gave a toy to looks at their toy, they are reminded that someone out there Loves them.
Also, built into every toy is a very noticeable stitch. This stitch symbolizes our take on a legend about Love. Legend has it that everyone who you meet and Love in this life is in your life for a reason. Like threads entwined, there is a beginning and an end. You are at the beginning of your thread and, at the end, is the person you Love.
The original legend says there is only one person at the end of your thread. Love & Dumplings believes that every person is a tapestry of these threads because Love has many different forms and is universal. Love is something everyone can experience and their toys are its ambassadors.
Love & Dumplings also believes in giving back. So for every toy purchased, a portion of each sale will be donated to a charitable organization that Love & Dumpling holds near and dear to their hearts. How sweet is this little company?
I love the handmade hand-stitched plush dumplings a lot! They are super duper adorable as a full collection. I love all the different expressions on these dumplings. ^^
Big congratulations, Bonnie and Margaret! I’m so honored to be your friend, hee hee. I hope you sell those cute plush dumplings by the truckloads!!! *xoxo*
