Hoho Lovin'

Like I have said in previous posts, I love social media...a lot.  I have made friends via social media, I have been introduced to fabulous Applecheeks dipes through it, and the Hoho has come into our lives.

Don't know what a Hoho is?!  Dudeeeee.  You're missing out.  These are probably my favorite "toy" of Patrick's, and my go-to gifts for baby showers and birthday parties.  They are amazing.  And I don't know what it is about them that makes me love them so; whether it's their uniqueness (I have yet to see two Hohos that are exactly alike), the fabric that's used, or the major love and TLC that goes into making each and everyone one of them (okay, it's probably a combo of all of that as to why I love them so).  They are my favorite.


I stumbled upon these amazing handmade creations on Instagram (where else?!! it's my favorite social media app!)...but then found out there's a blog about them too!  Crystal over at @littlebitfunky makes these adorable Hohos.  She has a variety of types of Hohos you can get your hands on: random insta-sales (my favorite way to get them--definitely an adrenaline rush!) at @littlebitfunkyhohos, custom keepsake orders via mail (you mail her your materials and she whips up an amazing Hoho and sends it back to you!), email wait lists for holiday Hohos (bunnies! reindeers! luckies!), or a general email waitlist for boy or girl themed Hohos.  You can search the hashtag #lbfhohos too and see a ton of pics that others have posted and tagged of their Hohos.



I have won about 5 Hohos through insta-sales (being the first person to leave their name/paypal address in a comment on the Instagram photo--and this is NO JOKE.  Literally, within 10 seconds of the pic being posted there will be 10+ comments of people leaving their name/paypal address...and you just hope and pray with your surge or insta-sale adrenaline that yours is the first one), and then I got one from the boy waitlist and 3 as custom keepsakes (*squeal!!* I got a STL police Hoho made for Patrick for Christmas, and then he's getting another Police Hoho for Easter and a STL Cardinals Hoho for his birthday!!).  I love each and every one of them so much!  They're all uniquely different yet I can tell with each how much time and dedication goes into making them.  I love how much Crystal loves to make these, and how much passion she exerts with them.  Crystal, if you're reading this, I'm a huge fan.  Keep doin' what you're doin' lady, there are lots of people out there who love your handmade awesomeness and support your insta-business!  I can't say it enough: I LOVE HOHOS!  And I'm pretty sure I've turned some of my other buddies onto these awesome little creatures, haven't I?!

I guess I should mention how much Patrick {& Scooter!} love these Hohos!  Patrick lately enjoys chewing on his Hoho's leg (teething again?!!).  But he also loves snuggling with them.  So darn cute.




If you want a Hoho yourself (or for someone else...like I said, GREAT gifts!), give Crystal a shout.  Send her an email at: crystal@littlebitfunky.com and she'll reply back with all the deets about how you can get your hands on one (or several, as I have!).

I'm sure there'll be more Hohos in my future--if you're a mom-to-be or have little ones and invite me to a shower/birthday party, your kid (or future kid) is probably getting a Hoho.  But know that the Hoho they are getting is a one-of-a-kind handmade toy that is unlike anything else they'll ever get.  I heart Hohos!

  1. Thanks to you, we love Hohos too!!! Thinking about getting a custom Cardinals one for Hammy :) The legs and button/eye are his favorite part.
