The Making of Foto….

Little Foto plays an integral role and therefore must be completely adorable, lightweight, happy and unique! In addition she needs to resemble her real live namesake and model. Okay, so you just have some firm in China make you a little plush stuffed dog…how hard can that be? What firm, what fur, what face, what feet, what feeling, what what what!

After a disastrous start, Patti Hughes, owner of Natural Life, came to the rescue by recommending Mentor International Corporation and a zillion sketches and email descriptors later we have a prototype and it meets all expectations. Salient features of our model include perfectly soft fur, sweet smile, versatile enough to stand or sit on command, long floppy ears, jester-colored white and black butt, endearing heart and peace signs on her front paws and an identifying collar with a camera icon “dog tag”! What else could you want from a plush animal fetching goodwill and photos for the globe’s kids?!
