The past 12 months have create a number of issues and questions for making toys - both inflatables and fabric dakis/blankets - which you can get in our store. This is not something that can be explained in one or even several short tweets, hence the blog post in an effort to shed some light on what many have experienced as shipping delays, price increases and longer lead times for projects in the recent past.

It all started with a casually posted image of an inflatable whale, on which she had decorated the belly with an anime drawing (ca. 2012 or 13). In 2014 (possibly encouraged...
