C3N2KIDS : Creative Carefree Children Nurtured Now

OOAK, Afrocentric, bright  coloured, felt animal books for children of all ages. Soft, vibrantly coloured, cuddly, soft throw cushions / pillows for children of all ages.
Ofunneka Anyanwu is the creative mind behind C3N2KIDS. 
"Inspiration for my shop came after I had my now 21 month old daughter. My single days, saw me sewing appliques and making amendments on my clothes using needle and thread, which I thought were sufficient tools then. 
But when my little angel came along, I wanted to make beautiful, unique outfits for her and just had to invest in a sewing machine (thanks to my husband). Having explored sewing her clothes for a while, I still felt that my creativity was stifled, this burning desire to explore all angles of my creativity birthed my second baby, C3N2KIDS, a shop for soft toys, throw cushions and mini cards for all occasions, catering specifically for children of all ages..."
