Armored Plate (inaccurately squishy)

Bad dreams won't stand a chance.

Sorry for the lack of updates recently. I've ended up moving twice in one month... not an experience I'd recommend to anyone. I've just about got everything back in order now. I'll coming out with a few new frog designs (as well as a couple other sea creatures I hope you'll enjoy) soon, so stay tuned.

Until then, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Ferocious Ankylosaurus!

You'd better watch out, because there's a new herbivore in town, and he means business!

Introducing The Toy Cove's fearsome Ankylosaurus:
He's got armor. He's got a club tail. And he's got attitude.
Ankylosaurus doesn't mess around.
Looking for the perfect guard-dino? You found him.
Just look at that armor.

The Toy Cove's Ankylosaurus came about when one of the neighborhood kids asked for "a green dinosaur with an angry face."

That club was made for knockin', and that's just what he'll do.

I was really pleased with how his bony plates came out.

Underside of plate. I think it'd make a good turtle shell.
Ankylosaurus is available on Etsy.

December Updates (with lots of links)

Where has the time gone?

I apologize for my absence; I was moving. I'm afraid I don't have any new toys to show off (but expect an Ankylsosaurus in a few days...). I have, however, been busy putting up new stores for The Toy Cove on non-Etsy sites (Etsy is still the best, but I want to expand my reach).

You can now find The Toy Cove on:





Of course, you can still buy our products from Etsy, Ebay and

Of the new sites, I like Goodsmiths and Zibbet best so far. Goodsmiths has some great seller tools and stats, and Zibbet seems easy for buyers to use.

Also, have I mentioned that there's a mailing list? If you'd like to be kept aware of blog and other updates, sign up here (you'll have to scroll). I'll be sending out new coupon codes (that won't be posted here) through the newsletter, and I promise not to spam you, so go ahead. :) You can also get the latest coupons by liking The Toy Cove on Facebook.
