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.
