Soft Toy Penelope the Wombat
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!
“Penelope is a super special wombat; some say she’s a little bit magical. She can run faster than an alpaca, levitate for ten seconds at a time; she’s exceptionally good at card tricks (she can show you one now if you don’t believe her) and she’s kind of telepathic. It’s extremely likely she’ll become a super hero one day.”
Dimensions: Approx 22 x 20cm
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.
