How I price my toys ....


.....I thought I would share with you today how I price my knitted Monsters.

I spent a long time researching how to price them and looking at how much other people charge for their toys (which are often not CE tested which they should be!)

Pricing ingredients:
Cost of the products: wool, stuffing
Use of equipment & other: Knitting needles, scissors, electricity for lights 
My time: Designing the toy, knitting the toy, testing the toy
CE Test: Making sure my toy is to CE standards

Now you have to decided how much you want to pay yourself an hour and any extra profit

How much do you get paid an hour?
Shall we say minimum wage £7.50 per hour

The largest toy I make is Pookiechu (the pink one) she takes me 16 hours to make
16 x 7.50 = 120

so that makes Pookiechu £120 before I've even added on the cost of any wool etc!

I therefore decided to pay myself a lot less and she became £65
However even though I know you are paying for a quality toy made with quality products and to the CE standards her price was still to far out of some peoples reach.

I want my toys to bring people JOY. 
Not just children but adults too!

So I have cut my prices down even more and I am now paying myself £2.00 per hour.
Some people might think I am mad but I want to HELP people  

Here are my revised prices
Booboos £32
Floffles £32
Boogalobie £40
Pookiechu £45
Tinkywink £18
Whoowoo £14

(plus postage)

Colouring time with my boy ☺

Murphy and I have been enjoying some colouring time together the past few days. He seems to be really getting into it. I've even let him use my promarkers! I've really enjoyed getting back into it although my neck is protesting! Good to be back 😁




Where have you been? I hear you cry!

Where the heck have you been? I hear you cry! Well I am busy working full time on my job (being a mummy) & part time on my fortune!
This is my full time job! He's called Murphy & is now two years old.
Why have I not been crafting? Well I am making some small short term sacrifices for a very huge fantastic long term goal......making memories with this little dude! The time I would have been using to craft I am building a successful international business! This business opportunity is open to anyone & can change your life in ways you never dreamed possible all you have to do is put some work in.
Would you be interested in  supplementing your income,  working from home around current commitments,  how would an extra £200-500 per month help you? What about £800-2000 per month?
DREAM BIG!

I suffer with CFS/ME, Fybromyalgia, anxiety and depression. They take up a large amount of my energy and time along with my family so I need an out, something for me and that is Ellephantastic. It's my creative life. Being creative, being inspired by other peoples creativity and inspiring others with my creativity are what keep me going. As well as the love I have for my family, but that goes without saying because who couldn't love this dude?

I love all kinds of crafting and creativity, knitting, art, baking, photography, paper crafting....anything really!
I have spent a lot of time the past 2 to 3 years working on myself and trying different avenues. E.g businesses, counselling, medication, diet.....all sorts! Every time though I have end…
