When I first lay my eyes on this stunning felt range, I was taken back to childhood fantasies of fairy folk and a magical land where only the imagination was the limit. I immediately fell in love with Himalayan Journey and the lovely owners, Lobsang and Miranda who I could see were so passionate about what they did.

Eco Toys is proud to support ethical, Australian businesses like Himalayan Journey that are making a difference to the lives of people who are disadvantaged.

We felt it was important that we shared their story so you know where your toys come from . .

Himalayan Journey is a family run business with owner Miranda and husband Lobsang who created Himalayan Journey 10 years ago.

Lobsang is a Tibetan refugee and they wanted to create a business that had its roots in the Himalayas, and would support local Himalayan communities in a ethical way.

Owners

Miranda designs all the beautiful felt toys herself. Being a mum of 3 young kids she has been blessed to be able to indulge her love of magic, nature and faeries. “I want children to be able to use their magical imagination and explore the beautiful world of imagination through nature and magic, and our felt is such a rich learning experience for kids, they can create and make so many stories, it’s truly a joy to watch.”
