Mr Tumble & WOYWW

If you are here looking for my desk only then please scroll down. If you want to see how two lovely bloggers completely made a three year olds birthday... read on.

For those that maybe don't know - Mr Tumble is a character performed by Justin Fletcher. But you cannot - for love nor money find official merchandise of Mr Tumble. Which is really unusual when it comes to kids toys, usually the market is flooded with any old tat - I like to think it's down to the morals of the lovely Justin. I may be wrong but I like to think it.Anyway - my youngest is obsessed with Mr Tumble - she's learning sign language through his TV show and I swear a lot of her good manners come from there too.

A while back I put up a plee for a custom doll that would look like Mr Tumble both on here and as an Alchemy request on Etsy - for Ruby's birthday. Blimey but I got so many responses through Etsy - so many parents have such a lot of love for Mr Tumble.

In the end I worked with Wipso who gave me a very reasonable price and kept me informed at every stage how Mr Tumble was coming along. Boy did she come up trumps!

He even has his spotty bag but Ruby has hidden that away from me at the moment.

Inside Mr Tumble's bag was a surprise little birthday teddy bear and poem from Wipso to Ruby, which was a beautiful touch. She loved it.

Then a few weeks ago a surprise package arrived from the lovely Virginia - I opened it up and had to hide it quickly.What should be inside but...
I'll say it again - I have made the best friends through Blog Land whose kindness and talent constantly amaze and surprise me.

Both Tumbles absolutely were the star attraction yesterday and Ruby is over the moon with them.
Ruby & Tumbles very sleepily watching the real thing on TV.

So if you have found my blog on the desperate search for a Mr Tumble doll yourself I can thoroughly recommend you have a conversation with Wipso and alsoVirginia.  Both dolls are so gorgeous to see in real life and so well made. I can really see these being treasured by Ruby forever :)

Now. Onto What's On My Workdesk? Wednesday...the short answer being... nothing! Ahahahaha! I do feel a fraud making you read all that and then showing this but I am chortling as I type.It took me a week to clear the carnage that was there before. I must admit - much as it goes against my chaotic nature... I prefer it clear - I can actually do stuff! Plus I have to keep a lot of my crafting hidden at the moment as it's all gearing towards Christmas presents and I don't know who out of my family reads the blog.

If you fancy playing along and showing the world what you are working on at the moment - head on over to the Queen of Madness herself and link up so we can all find you.

It's Ruby's first day at nursery today and I have to stay and play... I mean, watch to make sure she settles in.  So I may be a bit later getting round you all. Have those cuppa's ready.

Thank you for stopping by ;)


  1. Isn't it brilliant when virtual friends make your day - the Tumbles are FANTASTIC!! I'm not surprised Ruby was over the moon! Enjoy your day at nursery school. Jaqui x

  7. So lovely to see the Tumbles - they didn't look that big in the pics of them on their own - WOW springs to mind. Hope you are enjoying your time at nursery - with Ruby of course!!

  8. I just love Mr Tumble. We have a house near us called Tumble House and I always tell my mum that Mr Tumble lives there! I know I am sad. I think there is definitely a gap in the market there with the Mr Tumble dolls.
    Ruby starting nursery! What will you do with all that free time!

  9. Belated Birthday wishes for Ruby ... Yay for Mr Tumble ... and thinking of you both ... hope all goes well XXX

  10. Hi ya
    aww the lovely look on her face says it all, worth its weight in gold, hope the first day at nursery went ok, lovely tidy desk,have great day, happy WOYWW, sue,x

  11. What a sweet thing to do for someone! I feel inspired by it :) I too love a clean workspace... a messy workspace makes! Have a great week!

    Katie (83)

  12. The blogosphere is certainly full to bursting with the kindest crafters ever - and your little girl's face is such a picture. I like a clean workspace too!

  13. I don't have a huge circle of friends but those I have I treasure with all my heart. It is wonderful that you can ask and there are people out there who can help :) Especially when it comes to making the little people in our lives so happy.

  14. Ah I was thinking yesterday and wondered how they'd been received and loved to see Wispo's version! I had much fun making it LOL and glad that it was well received!

    Hope first day at nursery is good also!



  15. Never mind the lovely dolls the lovely Ruby is a little doll herself! Oh to be three again and run around the house in your knickers!! Hope she had a fantastic birthday and good luck with the nursery thing. Must be hard.


  16. Beautiful work and great WOYWW space, thanks for sharing, hugs Heidi (#32) xxx

  17. Two big thumbs up for Wipso and the doll she made for your daughter's b'day. So glad she liked it.

    Like you, I simply can't work in clutter. But each person is different and those who need clutter around them are just as important and artsy as those who must have a clean work space.

  18. You've just given me a nice set of warm fuzzies about the blogosphere. Hope the brothers Tumble are enjoying their new home.

  19. Wonderful dolls and love the photos of Ruby with them. Amazing to find such good friends in blog land x

  20. Those dolls are fab. Mine have not beem too fussed with Mr Tumble but I think he's great. I agree, Justin just comes across as well-mannered.

    Nice clean desk. How long will it last?

    Donna x

  21. Ruby looks so happy with her toys. What a lovely story and well done to Wipso.
    Sue xx 15

  22. There are some lovely, amazing, generous, talented people out there. I'm sure the dolls will be much loved. Pam (12)

  23. Oh those dolls are just superb -


  24. Lucky Ruby :D. A show to bring joy and toys to share it with thanks to her mom and two splendid friends. Thsnks for sharing! :D


  25. How wonderful for your little girl to receive those amazing dolls - well done ladies if you're reading this! And I totally agree with the thing about clear desks, when mine's empty I want to start work on everything at once.... Helen (16)

  26. 2 Mr Tumbles how cute..lovely photos . You will have to scrapbook these :)

  27. I would love to show you the doll that I have made but I am not sure how to do it. Anyway, my Grand Daughter abosolutly loves him and I already have 7 parents wanting a replica since I posted on facebook.
