Fern Animals is one of those shops you have to stalk a bit because they sell out so quickly. There's something almost magical and other-worldly about these animals though, as if they stepped out of a fantastical children's book ala The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

Fern Animals are the creation of Ashley Anna Brown who mostly uses vintage or second-hand fabrics in combination with an organic cotton filling. They are small, under 5" and sell for around $44 which may seem like a lot, but they are handmade and might make for a better collectible than toy.

As we mentioned, Ashley sells these faster than she can make them. You can see a gallery of sold animals at FernAnimals.com. There just happens to be a Fern Animals shop update today at 4 so maybe you'll get lucky. Otherwise, we'd recommend subscribing to Ashley's blog where she always lets readers know when new Fern Animals are being released into the wild.
