O'Nessy's was born to share my passion for making children giggle and smile. When my two gorgeous boys were born, I decided I wanted to spend as much time with them as possible. I am sure every parent, grandparent, uncles and aunts, will all agree, there is nothing as wonderful as seeing a child happily playing.
My two boys Connor and Ciaran, check all of my toys before I bring them to you, to ensure that they are fun to play with and stand up to wear and tear. So you can be assured that your children will love them too.
We are constantly looking for new toys to share with you. If there is something that you would love to see that isn't in our store on on our website, just let us know and we will try to find it for you.

All toys naturally meet the stringent European requirements of standard EN 71.
- Rag Dolls - The ethos of O'Nessy's is traditional, ethical sourced and wholesome rag dolls and soft toys. We love to find toys that have an added special quality such as being handmade or simply because they are reminiscent of traditional toys from times past, in a world where plastic and throwaway toys dominate. We want our toys to be treasured, so our rag dolls would like to become a new best friend, our dolls are a perfect keepsake, our soft toys are expecting to be cuddled and our crochet toys are created by hand to be a cherished and unique gift. O'Nessy's - adorable toys to be loved and cherished.

O'Nessy's promotes handmade. O'Nessy's toys are designed and made to last a lifetime and beyond. They are carefully and lovingly handmade and they are designed for use. By buying toys which take a long time to make you are creating much needed rural employment in Bangladesh without adding to the throw away commercialised culture all too prevalent today.
