Review: Dolly Oblong - Cut out paper toys

I thought it was good time for me to make my first review. And I thought Dolly Oblong was the perfect artist/shop to start with.
I only found Dolly Oblong a few months back, when I heard of ToyCon UK. I was browsing through the artists that were going to attend the Convention and among them I found Dolly Oblong.
I fell in love with her art and her toys as soon as I entered her website. My fingers were inching to get the paper toys. And yesterday they landed in my mail-box.
As you can see I couldn't settle for just one, and if I could have afford it I would probably have bought the lot!
These toys are extremely well made and the artwork is just gorgeous! For the straight bits I used a scalpel and a ruler and I would suggest you do the same if you decide to get these cuties. For the round bits, like arms etc I used scissors as the scalpel is hard to use on these bits.
I think these toys would be great for anyone. They do take some time to build, but as for myself I love the challenge and I love working with my hands, so I enjoyed every single bit of it. I actually built them all in one night cause I quite simply couldn't wait too see what they would look like.
I will definitely get more of these in the future and I can't wait for the next release. Dolly Oblong's website is a MUST to visit! I can sit and brows it forever. It is such a treat to the eye! She makes plushies and other toys, along with art prints and well lets just say she is super creative and it seems that whatever she touches comes out amazing!
These two were included as well. I didn't order them so they were a great little extra surprise! Thank you ever so much!
So head on over to Dolly Oblong and knock yourself out! These guys are too good to miss out on. Also, the shipping was super fast. These guys came within three days all the way from Netherlands to the UK! And the shipping was included in the price. I only have great things to say about Dolly Oblong and I would recommend her to anyone. 5 stars out of 5 possible!
