Why Choose Sheepskin?

We made our first sheepskin Flat Friends back in 1996, then expanded our range to include puppets in 2003, selling them at markets and independent boutiques. 

The beauty of sheepskin is that it’s soft, cuddly, and comes with all kinds of health benefits for your child. Our sheepskin toys make the perfect comforter that children can keep with them when they play or go to sleep.

Sheepskin is a natural product containing lanolin and therapeutic qualities, encouraging a better night’s sleep for your little one. It’s also soft and gentle on your child’s skin, while also being hypoallergenic – so you know it’s completely safe and free of irritations.

Made with quality Australian sheepskin, our toys are sustainably-made and eco-friendly. The fleece and wool fibres help to activate blood circulation, improve your immune system and regulate your body temperature. So, you can relax and regenerate, hence promoting your wellbeing.

Why Children Should Play With Puppets

Puppets are an interactive toy, encouraging social play. They’re also great for building your child’s imagination, self-esteem and confidence, while instilling a can-do attitude. 

Watch children perform stories they heard or create their own, triggering their imagination. Our people puppets for kids also teach the values of diversity and inclusion, with each character representing a different culture so children can see their own story mirrored in their toys. It also helps your child to develop empathy and build their understanding of the world around them. They’ll roleplay and express their emotional stresses.

We have received the wolf which is really lovely, thank you. I spent a lot of time searching the internet for a friendly looking wolf puppet - this one is called “word wolf” as a teaching aid and found that the children really engage with the wolf and believe it really is setting challenges for them to complete.


Thank you so much for the superb customer service Lina! I’ll be in touch next baby shower!


Jordan loves his quokka puppet! I gave the adorable bag the quokka came with to his twin sister. She really liked that, too! Thank you for the free bag, I can’t thank you enough for your kindness and thoughtfulness, and thanks again for going above and beyond good customer service!


Thank you for sending the orangutans. The 2nd orangutan is a spare for my son. He is 1 and a half years and has had a flat friend from birth, and he takes it everywhere with him. They really are brilliant and have helped keep our son happy and comforted.
