Have you visited any WOW shop lately? If you're in New York City - Norman & Jules located in Park Slope, Brooklyn a toy shop you wouldn't want to miss. I seriously die and gone to toyland heaven. They carry all sort of high end and good quality toys.
Here are just a few brands they carry for soft toys:
Jess Brow rag dolls
Jan Van Cleef
Winter Water Factory
Lucky Boy Sunday
Home Grown Books
I didn't walk out with empty hand..next posting a new toy
