NOT ALL SIMILAR PRODUCTS ARE CREATED EQUALâ€¦
I have been talking about parts & their
difference for ions now. So I decided it is time to explain the parts that I
use & why. Yes, some parts are more expensive than what other toy makerâ€™s
will use that are similar. But I have requirements for qualityâ€¦
GFBToys uses 2 sizes of handWOVEN straw hats in my
toy designs: 2â€ & 3-4â€ diameter. These hats are handWOVEN (they are
expensive & unfortunately are not easily found anymore). But there is an
importance difference between these handWOVEN versus the easily available SEWN
hats. And the difference is why GFBToys uses the handWOVENâ€¦they are plain &
simple, nothing added!!
The SEWN hats use a fine nylon filament thread that
does not brake easily. On a bird, especially a small one it could get wrapped
around toes, tongues, a wing, etc. Not advisable for any size critters either
since they could ingest the threads which could bind up inside. These SEWN hats
are designed for craft use, easier to produce & cost much less.
