Blobb is about being here for you with its irresistible cuteness!  That's all really.  Blobb is happy to liven up your decor, to make you smile, maybe even be a friend to talk to (about dreams of traveling to Sweden, or to practice your Swedish with).

From our favorite Tomte maker in Småland, Sweden!  A fun addition to your Tomtar collection.

Made in Sweden

The body is felted from wool and the feet are wood.

4 inches high
Note that these are a handmade product, so sizes do have variation between each item.

Åsa Götander started at her kitchen sink, rubbing wool with water and soap at her small home in the woods of Småland, Sweden in the town of Örnahol. She says: "It all started with pitiful little, completely felted and frankly ugly elves. But they also sold, albeit to a modest extent - 50 pieces at a Christmas market in Gislaved." This was before there was what is known today as Åsas Tomtebod; of this time Asa says "it was just myself and my felted elves".

Today Åsas Tomtebod 'elves' travel all over the world and the business remains family run, still priding itself on quality and natural materials. Åsas Tomtebod has grown and expanded, but they continue to be based in Örnahol, Sweden.
