Big Five Crafts – Groenfontein Toy Project teddies and animals new for 2014!
The most exciting new products we are listing for 2014 are the amazing Groenfontein Toy Project teddies and stuffed animals! These are all hand made by the women involved in the project and we love them! We will very shortly have available a range of their giraffes, elephants and small and large teddies.
There is a short YouTube video below that shows the project and how the help the local communities, and taken from the toy project website:
The Groenfontein Toy Project is a skills-development and employment initiative outside Calitzdorp in the Klein Karoo. The project was started in 2011 in response to the high levels of unemployment among women living in our beautiful, yet struggling valley – many of whom have been without consistent work their entire adult lives.
All our products are original and 100% handmade by the team of dedicated women. Authentic and quirky, they’re the ideal alternative gift at baby showers, the perfect décor item for a child’s bedroom, and a happy addition to any home.
