Hello and welcome to Poems for Buttercup + Tanglewood Toys
We are two sisters Chelsea and Zoe Thorpe based on the East Coast of New Zealand.
Between us we have 7 young girls aged between 3 months and 7 years. Poems for Buttercup is named for our youngest little ones Orla Buttercup and Florence Poet.
.
We decided to begin making these beautiful little dolls as we wanted to be able to create as we sat at home snuggled up with our littlest ones throughout the Winter.
As children we were raised with Steiner influences throughout our day to day lives which seems to have had a lasting influence on ourselves and our other siblings. We feel very lucky to be able to bring our children into a world where play is still free, natural materials everywhere and cousins abundant.
.
We have made a conscious effort to try and limit our consumption of plastic toys and disposable items but obviously in this throw-away era it is a struggle but we hope that our dolls will stay in the family for many years to come and be a special little friend to your child through the good times and the bad.
.
Zoe couldn't resist the pull of a range of beautiful wooden toys, art supplies, books and craft kits so these have been added to the store hence the new branding and store name!
Please feel free to get in touch with any enquires tanglewoodtoysnz@gmail.com

With love,
Chelsea and Zoe
