What You Get+-

I love using safety eyes in my softies. I think it gives them a really professional look. And the shiny black domes have a certain sparkle to them that's impossible to replicate with felt or embroidery thread. Plus? They're super easy and fast. :-) Kids especially love using them in their projects.

They're called safety eyes but they are NOT SAFE FOR BABIES! Please - if you're making a toy for anyone under 3 years old - stitch the eyes. It's the safest solution.

Choose your eye size and pack size from the drop down menu. Note - only the enormous 40 mm eyes are available in a single-pair pack.

I have them in a few sizes. . .

4.5 mm is really tiny. I use these in small felt softies, like the Party Animals. (These come with metal backs. The plastic backs are just really difficult to work with.)

6 mm is the size I use in Franklin the Fat Cat when I'm stitching the small face (it makes him look extra-fat).

9 mm is the size I use most often. I use them in all of the Dress Up Bunch dolls and in lots of other softies as well. This is also a good all-purpose size for amigurumi.

12 mm is just a bit bigger and I use them in some softies and lots of amigurumi.

I like using this ball point awl to poke the holes for these eyes.

Top Pick

I've ordered safety eyes from many different places, and these are by far my top pick. The backs are sturdy and hold securely, the eyes themselves are consistently great quality, and the option to buy in bulk is fantastic. These have been my go-to eyes for years! (I would love to see even more sizes offered!)

Worked great!

A few years ago I bought cheap ones via Amazon, and they were nothing but a problem. Pieces didn't fit together to close, etc. Made 5 charity bears so far, and they were easy to use

Love these!

Our class of 4th graders wanted to make charity bears to share with those in need. I purchased the eyes and they really gave our bears instant personality. So adorable- and easy to use! Thank you!!

Perfect eyes

Never used safety eyes before, as I always just stitched them on. These are easy to use and great quality. They made the end product look so much cuter!
