Top Bird loves … Fake food

I can’t stop staring at these fake food items on Etsy. I don’t know if it’s the kawaii, clever, crafty or kitsch factor that’s grabbed me … perhaps a bit of all? Or maybe it's the fact that I would have snaffled the whole lot for my Barbie and Sindy dolls when I was a seven. (And *gasp* maybe Barbie would have put on some weight!)

Feast your eyes on this lovely line-up, including felt eggs, crocheted cakes, knitted peas and polymer clay dessert jewellery (surely a tween delight). Fascinating, no?

A Half Dozen felt Eggs with Egg Carton, US$15, from Go Buggy’s Etsy shop.

Handmade felt lemon, US$14 from Go Buggy’s Etsy shop.

Grilled Tofu Dinner D, US$32, from Go Buggy’s Etsy shop.

Three peas in a pod pin, US$9, from KnitKnit’s Etsy shop.

Itty Bitty Cupcake collector set, US$18, from Pukashell’s Etsy shop.

Mocha cappuccino cake, US$18, from Pukashell’s Etsy shop.

Five Scoop Hot Fudge Sundae ring, US$18, from Robin’s Jewelry Box Etsy shop.

Sliced Valentine’s Cake pendent, US$18, from Robin’s Jewelry Box’s Etsy shop.

Cookies and Milk ring, US$14 from Robin's Jewelry Box's Etsy shop.

Oh, stop it!

*Remember that most pieces on Etsy are one-offs and sell quickly, but make sure you check the seller's shop as many items are relisted.
