What are Safety Eyes?

Some people call pastic eyes crystal eyes because they are so lustrous and shiny. Safety eyes have a stem (also called a rod or shank) at the back and you secure them onto the toy when you push a metal or plastic washer over the stem. Once you attach the washer, you can’t remove it again, hence safety eyes. These eyes don’t have a safety washer though. They are ideal for use on needlefelt toys, clay sculptures, and other crafts where it’s not possible to attach the eye with a washer.

Which Types of Crafts can Use Plastic Eyes?

Craft eyes are affordable and versatile.  You can use plastic eyes for soft toy making, paper crafts, felt toys, scrapbooking, and many other crafts. Some of our customers even use our plastic safety eyes to make fly fishing lures.

How to Choose the Right Size Eye

The size of toy eyes is a personal preference. Small eyes can make your toy look more mature, calculating, mean. Tiny eyes are a good choice if you want to make quirky characters, while large eyes give an impression of innocence, baby animal, being surprised, or in love. If your pattern doesn’t specify which size eyes to buy, you can take a ruler and measure the size you think will work best. Remember that our eyes are sold in pairs and the size is indicated in millimeters.

How Do You Attach Plastic Eyes on a Pin?

  • Push two pins with large heads into the toy head where you think you want to attach the 9mm amber plastic eyes. Move them around until you’re happy with the placement and symmetry. Mark the spot by making a small dot with a felt tip pen.
  • Use an awl, knitting needle, or chopstick to wriggle a hole in the fabric so that the stem of the eye can fit in.
  • Glue the eye into position using contact glue or superglue.
