Plastic Triangular Cat Safety Noses for Toys 6mm – 18mm
A pack of black, plastic cat safety noses for soft toy making. These black noses are triangular in shape and particularly suitable for creating a cat nose. The noses come in sizes ranging from a tiny 6mm to 18mm and are made from black plastic and are available as a single nose, packs of 5 or packs of 10. Plastic safety noses are suitable for stitched, knitted and crocheted toys. These eyes conform to EN71 certification.
The noses are available in the sizes shown below. The nose size relates to the width at the widest part and the other measurement is the height at the widest part (eg the 6mm nose measures 6mm across the nose and 4.5mm from top to the bottom of the nose).
- 6mm x 4.5mm
- 7mm x 6mm
- 12mm x 9mm
- 15mm x 12mm
- 18mm x 14mm
The nose has a ridged ‘pin’ on the back that is inserted through the fabric (before stuffing the head). The plastic or metal back is inserted onto the ‘pin’ on the inside of the fabric that holds the nose firmly in place.
The backs have to be a very tight fit to ensure the nose cannot be pulled off from the toy. Because of this, we also stock an Insertion Tool that helps push the backs onto the noses which is particularly helpful for those that have weakness in their hands or fingers. It can also help if the plastic back is immersed in boiling water for a minute prior to insertion.
Please note: the noses are usually supplied with plastic backs but sometimes supplied with metal backs. If you prefer one type of back, please contact us beforehand to check which we currently have in stock.
