I started making these taggy comforters when my granddaughter was a baby, as she had a thing for sucking on cloth, but often choked on whatever she was sucking on. She loved these comforters because she could suck the ribbons, but never choked on them. They also proved very popular with friend’s babies and so I started selling them on ebay.

Babies love to feel, suck and play with the ribbons on the comforter – lot of parents have told me that often when they give their children a soft toy, they instantly search for the label and play with that, rather than the toy! So if you have a young baby or small child like that, then this is the ‘toy’ for them!

My comforters are made with bright coloured patterned fleece on one side, with a matching plain fleece on the other (some are backed with a plain fleece with teddy bears embossed on it) and have lots of various bright colours, patterns, textures and widths of ribbons to attract the baby’s attention. The ribbons will vary depending on what I have in my 'stockpile', but they will all be different and none will be duplicated.

Some of the 'boy/girl' colours are specially themed for boys or girls with more 'boyish' or 'girly' ribbons.

I make 3 different sizes – the smallest is approx 8”-9”, the medium is about 10”-11” square and the large one is about 12”-14” square.

The small one is £3.50, the medium is £4.00 and the large is £4.50 and all are post free.

The ‘taggy’ will wash very well in the washing machine or by hand.

Also we are a non-smoking household.

Small cows - boys


Small teddy bears - boys


Small multi - this is girls, but I also do blue backs & blue ribbons for boys


Small flowery - girls


Medium 'Hello Kitty' - unisex


Medium frogs - unisex


Large cars - boys


Large bumble bees - unisex

So sorry, but I've only about 2 pieces of the flowery fleece left and they're already cut to make small ones. Last time I went to the shop to buy more they had none in stock and weren't expecting to get any more in.

The only other fabric I have, which I bought on that date is this one, but I haven't made any up in it yet - been kinda busy!!



I also make some in cotton fabric on one side and fleece on the other.

I have one of these left - it's about 11" square and for girls



and 2 pieces left cut out of the same fabric in blue for boys



This is another cotton/fleece one I make - unisex

Sorry, everyone - a senior moment in my pricing. I'm afraid I'll have to charge £5.00 for the large ones, as they are too thick to post out as a 'large packet' and therefore will cost 90p to post.

Sorry about that!
