Eco-responsible toys for Christmas

Posted on
Buying less but buying better is one of the bases of minimalism but it also rhymes with economy and ecology. Buying less is, in fact, having more budget, which then allows us to encourage small companies with ethical and eco-responsible values that charge fair prices in terms of production methods, treatment of employees, etc.

A moment of pure joy
We love playing with the big felt ball by Atelier Petites Formes, its colours and the softness of its material contribute to this moment of pure joy for both of us
Sophie, aged 37 and Lila, aged 4, Nantes
The feltballs are round and warm and only evoke happiness
I feel that we have never had a more beautiful toy than these woolen balls. Seeing them in my house every day is a real treat for the eyes. My children have taken to them straight away and never lose them, my daughter has made up a rhyme to go with the ball game and plays it every day at the moment. They have all sorts of toys, plastic, wooden and others, but it is always these simple, natural shapes that they return to. If we take good care of them, these balls will stay with us for a long time, and that's good!

Soft and beautiful
I don't often make a fuss about a package I receive and I don't do a story about opening a package.
Usually. But this one, frankly, is too good. The bears are for baby at Christmas. The swallow is for the girls, probably tonight when they get home from school, because they love the story of Thumbelina and I think it was the missing character in their reenactments& Everything is in organic wool, beautifully hand-stitched, soft and beautiful. I highly recommend @petitesformes' creations because frankly, there is talent at work.
Caroline S. mother of 3 children
Thank you SO MUCH for my order! 
I was very excited when I placed it but frankly the surprise is even better when I receive it.
I knew it was going to be nice but it's even better than that. The wool is too beautiful, which you don't necessarily see in photos. Very soft, "fine". I'm really very happy and I'll be sure to recommend your work to everyone!
Many congratulations and thanks
Caroline B. mum of Léonidas 6 months, Barcelona
Handmade and made in France
Thank you so much for your speed!
For April I will order a wreath. It is not impossible that I will fall in love with the animals which I find sensational. Congratulations again, I am happy to buy handmade and made in France 🇫🇷

Without a doubt the most beautiful toys in the house
The Little Shapes were very well received, the boys were very happy with their animal. The wolf became the protector of "rabbit", Ariel's favourite rabbit doll and fox sleeps with Armel.
I was amazed when I also discovered the stuffed animals because I had not opened the pretty packages.
The bear is for my niece who will get it in a few weeks.
Thank you for these beautiful creations, without a doubt the most beautiful toys we have at home. Bravo

So poetic
I am so happy to have discovered your work, your universe a few months ago. Everything is so sweet, so pretty, so poetic. I am not a mother. It's a beautiful dream that I'm cherishing just for the moment. If one day I am, I will devalue the shop!
Thank you for a very pleasant exchange and for this lovely creation which I am sure Madeleine will love.

My lover has fallen back into childhood
Adorable felt toys for children and adults alike!
I gave a little elephant to my boyfriend who immediately fell in love with it. The quality of the wool is excellent and every detail is carefully made.
I am absolutely convinced by Atelier Petites Formes and highly recommend these toys for a gift idea, or to simply treat yourself.
Thank you again!

For Lison
Thanks to Atelier Petites Formes.
The swallow that I ordered has made its migration to come and land on little Lison's cradle. Both announce the arrival of spring. The sweetness, the colours, the freshness and the quality are all there.

Little fox is doing very well
I'm sending you little pictures of M with the little fox, M is playing with it and likes to carry it around with her mouth, and despite all her treatments it is doing very well! She is starting to walk him around and make him jump, I can't wait for her to tell little stories with him.
See you soon

What marvels! 😍
I'd been looking for a long time for wool felt toys that were well designed, with simple lines that captured the purity of the miniature animals.
Of all the handmade woollen toys I've seen, those from Atelier Petites Formes are the most unusual, with their generous dimensions and unrivalled quality of felt and workmanship!
I recommend PetitesFormes.com to all parents who want a toy that doesn't pollute, that's made close to home with great know-how to support, don't hesitate, PetitesFormes.com plush toys are for you.
(to the delight of your children) 😉

It makes you dream...
I fell for the Atelier Petites Formes horse for my daughter because it reminds me of the toys we had as children, which are common in Germany.
Manon's designs always look great when I browsed her online shop, and everything made me want to buy them... they're so poetic... they make you dream.

Creations for all seasons
what a generous catalogue of the most ethical and natural toys you can make! I love giving my child natural toys, he has lots of free wooden toys or wooden characters and the petites Formes menagerie with all its woollen animals, seasonal crowns... I'm delighted! What talent! Thank you so much!
