Name Our Koala Competition

Meet our Happy, furry friend. 'Koala' is a giant & perfect for a good cuddle. He's as Aussie as they come and has decided to hang around The Handmade Show as our mascot ... How cute is that!

This giant koala was handmade in Melbourne approx 40 - 50 years ago; made with real fur (don't know what kind but definitely not koala); good quality stuffing .... and stands (or sits) 100cm high (we need a wheelbarrow to carry him/her around).

But we have a slight problem - he/she doesn't have a name. So we need your help to find a name for our friend.

Sounds like a great opportunity for a competition? Oooh, yes!
So jump on board and give it a go - we have a lovely prize to give away to the person with the winning name.

  1. Hes really cute, and big. I think Id call him "Old Stormy". Love your blog looks really good.


  2. I was thinking about "Handy Lady"
    most of the stall holders are

  3. I love the name Sydney as its Aussie just like the koala and can be a unisex name

  4. Hi! I think he should be called Steve... (After Steve Irwin - who would definitely want to see this cute koala hang around for another 40-50 years!) AAF!

  5. I like "Stitches" as thats what holds my product together.

  6. The koala is a cutie so I think she should be named 'Jasmine'. This is a natonal flower in 4-5 countries, has a beautiful scent and is very pretty!! The handmade show is not only aussie style and aussie made gifts but represents many multi-national gifted cultures.

  7. Hi,I am 9 yrs old and I've been to The Handmade Show with my mum (Pia) and I think the koala's name should be 'Princess Rose', her name is a symbol of love, it's an honour to be a Princess and she is the head of The Handmade Show!!


Hi! :) thank you so much for stopping by, we would love to hear from you.
