Quitting her job at the end  of 2015 to focus fulltime on the creations, Kasia said: “We create ‘dolls’ from the world of our fantasy, trying to make them look as realistic as we can.

“Usually they are new species inspired by the forest, nature and everything around us.”

The life of a new “animal” starts in the head of Kasia who draws her concept on paper,  then the sculpting and painting phase begins.

Jacek, an engineer at a Non-Ferrous Metals Institute in Gliwice, uses his knowledge of chemistry to create the molds and casts.

Before offering their ‘designer items’ to the public, they are tested on their 11-year-old daughter.

Kasia said: “Our daughter is a perfect tester for all of our products. Every new creature is given to her and thoroughly checks them by hugging or kissing them.”

Jacek added: “These are rather decorative items but if you give them to a child they can also be an amazing toy.”

The couple’s ‘toys’ have now been flooded with praise, with internet users describing them as ‘adorable’, ‘mesmerising’ and ‘freakin awesome’.
