Soft Toy Esmerelda the Unicorn
The charismatic animals created by Herbert & Friends get up to all kinds of mischief; from building time-machines, putting on plays and making Swedish gingerbread, life is never dull when the critters are around!
“Esmeralda is the most magical unicorn in the world. She tries to keep her magic under wraps and not use it too much, but there are times when it’s irresistible (like when she’s losing a game of monopoly). She also tries to be aloof and apparition-like, as unicorns are taught to be, but it’s not all that much fun, and to be honest, she’d rather be the centre of attention!”
Dimensions: 29 x 18cm
Herbert & Friends was founded by Sydney based artist and crafter Torunn Higgins. After completing a Fine Arts degree at COFA, Torunn found herself drawn to designing and creating quirky soft critters which took on a life of their own. Torunn works with natural, recycled, and synthetic materials where needed. She draws inspiration from notions of self identity, the little idiosyncrasies inside all of us, and the personas and ideas we project onto the animal and natural worlds.
