Cuddlies making Deebdeeb
Very neatly done, very good quality for all the material used creating the teddy. It feels soft and cuddly. The filling are nice and it supports the teddy to sit independently which was a personal request from my-side.
The teddy was delivered next day after the final review. It was shipped in a box that had the stamp of the Cuddlies I thought that was cool. The box was wrapped in extra wrapping made it looks more like a gift than a cargo box. Deebdeeb teddy was sleeping nicely inside the box covered and surrounded with tissue paper. It had a tag around his leg and came with the maker card. It was so cool. So neat. Very special moment to reveal.
Natalia the creator, was very responsive for the emails in an outstanding time, sometimes within minutes. She kept me updated with lots of photos and choices.
Building a 3D character is very very challenging task. Especially when you do sewing yourself and know your stuff. We had some rough time giving Deebdeeb the right rounded face. Natalia was determined to do her best even when that meant to redo the work. She didn’t for once, make any comment that expresses complaining. She only expressed her willing to make it right. That was a wonderful attitude with a lovely result for the product at the end.
Tip: If you are creating you book character teddy make sure to ask your illustrator to do a sketch of the character facing the camera.
Bearing in mind the alterations, pinning unpinning doing the work re do the work. Deebdeeb made it home one day delay to the initial agreed deadline. That was outstanding effort. I was very happy. I will still take Deebdeeb with me to Dubai in two days to my reading workshop!

"I cannot recommend Natalia highly enough. I commissioned her to bring my children's book characters to life and they were even better than I could
have imagined. She captured my illustrations perfectly. The fabrics that she used were really high quality and the level of
detail that she went to is amazing, with lots of lovely embroidered details. I couldn't be happier with the plushies. They are perfect for book events and children's workshops and I have gotten so many compliments on them."

We asked for a unicat to be made for my daughter’s 10th birthday and was absolutely delighted to receive the soft toy. She was thrilled with it. A toy to treasure. Thank you Cuddlies

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the skill and creativity you have used to make my daughter's drawing of her Grandma's cat into reality. My Mum is really touched by the gift which was Caitlin's idea to comfort her after the cat died.
Thank you again. I know I will be contacting you again in the future.
I have been meaning to message you for ages to let you know how pleased Ben is with his Cuddlies fish. It is so well made and exactly like his drawing in every way. A really special keepsake that he will cherish forever.
Got Fiery over the weekend. He is even better in real life. I can see you have gone to a lot of trouble.
You should put a picture on your website, because it is easily the best one I have seen on the internet.
My grandson was thoroughly delighted with it. My whole family is seriously impressed with your work.
Just to let you know the rabbit was absolutely lovely, Sophie was so chuffed with it and her little cousin (who she had designed it for as a christening present) absolutely loved it! Thank you :) x
I received the cuddlie today and all I can say is wow! It is more fabulous than I could even imagine. My granddaughter Grace is going to love it. Thank you so very much! What a talent!
The monster arrived today. It is just perfect. Thank you so so much, you are incredibly talented!
Pumpkin received. It looks fantastic! Thanks for doing a great job and turning it around so quickly. Hopefully do business again soon. Have a great Christmas
The puppet is excellent. Thank you. I'll be in touch very soon to order more.
