These adorable, handcrafted, organic felt safari animals dreamed up by Iris Savir for her Gazoor collection are not for decorative purposes only - they are for playing with! Iris Savir is a former art teacher who starting making dolls for children from broken homes. She wanted to teach them about nature and spirit, while cheering them up at the same time. The collection consists of five safari animals, a giraffe, an elephant, a white zebra, a black zebra, and a rhino.
Each Gazoor animal is handmade by Iris Savir herself using organic felt, wire and cotton. She called her line Gazoor because it’s a Hebrew slang term for someone who is different. These are beautiful toys that will be perfect for imaginative play and they’ll look adorable stored out in the open on a child’s bookshelf or even in your family room for years to come.
