  • incywincy... teddy?

    Hi, have been doing this today….
    (still can’t get my pics sized down to fit on here? So have attached picture trail link)
    http://www.picturetrail.com/gallery/...17&uid=7216427

    Its something I want to add to my website (still a work in progress), but can you give me some feedback and a little help!

    ~ British Standards? I won’t be using the buttons, but its for baby/toddlers so will I need to get it tested? Does anyone know where any test centres are??
    ~ What shall I call them? As I’ve got my i.w togs (baby wear) i.w pods (nursery)… was thinking maybe incywincybods ???

    Oh yes, I am a perfectionist so please say what you really think so I can make it better!! I am really pleased with it so far, love the fact that its all face on the front, but has trousers on the back! (If that makes sense!) Just needs tweaking and not sure how!

    Thanks x

    He's cute!

    The button eyes are kind of scary, although I know you won't be using them. How about embroidering nice black eyes with a tiny white reflection dot?

    incywincybods sounds good, my middle son was called The Bod, as a little baby.....13 soon!

    Does your bod rattle or make a noise?

    Local trading standards will be able to tell you your nearest testing office, or an address to mail to.

        Activity Blanket...

        The Bod had one, and it had touchy feely things, and rattly bits, but one area had what sounded like crinkling cellophane inside, and Jamie loved it more that the other sounds. It wasn't hugely loud but it seemed to have an attraction!

                They're great!...Love the shape. It's a pity you have to loose the button...I understand why you need to get rid but the 'look' of the button eyes fits so well..If you're thinking about adding extra bits you can always add may a teething ring to the legs, fixed with a loop of material...btw my Uncle is something to do with trading standards so i'l ask him about testing etc and get back to you

                  I know a testing house in Leeds called High Street Textile Testing,I used used them in my old company for all sorts of textile testing, I don't know if they would do toy testing but because its on fabric they may. If you want phone numbers let me know. Sorry meant to say , you can post the product there, you don't need to be local...we weren't.
