Animated Tea Cosy


Who doesn't love a granny? And they are all fuelled by tea, so it seems perfect to have a granny tea cosy. This Granny is a bit infirm, so she has to use a Zimmer walking frame to get about.

The grandma tea cosy has a lovely face with a big, white permed hair do. Her eye sight isn't as good as it used to be, so she has a pair of glasses perched on her nose.

I imagine that all grandmothers wear cardigans, they feel the cold don't they and they like to have a cardi? If they get chilly they button it up. This old lady has a green cardi on, that has been left unbuttoned.

On her feet she is wearing red slippers with white pompom detailing. They are super cute.

The walking frame is self supporting and stands in front of the elderly lady. It looks the part and makes the granny look very sweet.

She's a lovely looking granny, just like they used to be. And she's perfect as a cheeky gift for a new Grandma. She does bring a ray of sunshine to teatimes.

Granny knows best and she's always ready for a hot cup of tea and a natter.
