If your kids still have soft toys to play with, you may be aware of how easy it is for the eyes to peel off, even when buying toys from major manufacturers. If your kids play roughly with their toys, their eyes may end up falling out after a while. If your kids enjoy chewing on their toys, plastic eyepieces can all end up looking chewed up. Unfortunately, this can leave your toys blind and it can be very difficult to replace them, especially if the “eye” has become damaged when it has come off or if it has been damaged in any other way. However, it is not necessary to throw away your child’s favorite toy in this case, because it is possible to repair the toy with buttons in bulk.
It is recommended that you only replace your child’s toy eyes if they are already past the stage where they like to chew on parts of their toys. Unfortunately, the buttons you sew won’t be sewn completely childproof and you don’t want them to accidentally swallow anything. Some parents, in fact, go so far as to take their eyes off their toy when their children are very young, and then replace them with buttons when they get a little older. This is to protect their babies from the risks associated with ingesting any food.
The first thing you need to do is make sure that all the pieces of the old eye have been completely removed from the toy. If the previous eye was cracked or damaged in any way, the sharp pieces may remain hidden within the toy’s fur or stuffing, so gently squeeze around the orbit of the toy to feel if there are any hidden pieces. These can be removed properly.
Next, find two large wholesale buttons, which will suit your toy. Wholesale buttons come in many different colors and shapes, so you can choose a couple of buttons that match your toy’s personality. Although the black round ones are used more often, it can depend on the appearance of your toy. If your toy is very colorful or previously had colored eyes, it might be great to wear them. However, it is usually best to choose a button with four holes, as these are the easiest to sew securely.
The best way to sew your buttons in bulk is to use a cross stitch pattern, where the stitches end up looking like an X. While this is one of the safest ways to affix buttons, it’s also a great way to give more expression to the toy. For a truly “shiny” look, you can use thread which is a contrasting color to the button color. if you want, you can also use shiny thread.
