Rachel has been creating her own, unique, plush toys for decades, and eventually even development a handful of concept designs for Spinmaster Toys and “Wild Kratts”, the hugely popular animated series by The Kratt Brothers.
However, in the last few years the one thing that has really brought Rachel internet popularity and blog-fame is “Franken Toys“. Of all the serious artwork Rachel strives to create, THIS is what the internet wanted. In their heyday a Franken Toy was in high demand and sold for a pretty penny, but now Rachel makes them mostly as gifts.
Below is a gallery of just a handful of the Franken Toys that have sold over the years via Etsy, or were given as gifts.
Scroll down to see the sold toys of days gone by.
Franken Toys are an art collection of rescued second-hand toys which have been dismembered and re-membered as a new creation. Somewhat like “Toy Story”, only Rachel is the hero in this story, not the villain.
The Kratt Brothers love Franken Toys!!
