OH, that's just the cutest!
Do you remember being drawn to the magical qualities of small things as a little one? From the intricate details of a ladybug's wings to the tiniest twigs in the forest, exploring the world through a smaller lens was so much fun!
Yes! These euphoric memories inspired our Endearing Felt Habitats, a fantastic way to introduce small-world play to your littlest loves. Watch them take delight in acting out real-life scenarios while experiencing a world of enchantment and attaining a general understanding of how things work.

Nurture your little loves imagination while helping them attain a beautiful sense of who they are and where they might belong in the world. They'll delight in acting out real-life scenarios, helping them practice social skills, building language, and attaining a general understanding of how things work.

The entire Gus & Mabel felt range has been meticulously crafted to ensure the highest quality goods are produced; we want only a safe and happy experience for you and your little loves.

Yes, our felt is non-toxic, but felt pieces are not intended for human consumption and would taste awful!
