Welcome to day twenty-two of the Plushie Palooza Toy Festival. Today’s wise old fellow is handmade by Sherry from y0omii. Does looking into his entrancing eyes get your feathers in a ruffle?

Kai the Owl lives in the Northern Hemisphere where the weather is beginning to get colder. Since he’s always flying around from one city to the next, he likes to wear his favourite red hat to keep himself warm during his long flights. Kai is knitted using multicoloured acrylic yarns. His eyes and beak are made from felt, with hand embroidered detailing.
Sherry from y0omii is a toy designer based in Toronto, Canada. She opened her store on Etsy a little over a year ago and draws her inspiration from everything and anything cute. She’s always drawn chubby, round characters in her sketchbook for fun, so turning them into an actual toy came naturally. In her store you’ll find a drop dead gorgeous collection of bears, monkeys, zoo animals and stationery.
