Phebe’s interview and recipe for Edible Magazine

“Simplicity of Life Allows Freedom”

Phebe is best known for her whimsical, creative plush toys that have been a part of children’s lives for twenty-seven years.

At this time, Phebe is directing her creative energy into writing many of her most popular characters into storybook, as well as expanding her character, Piper the Puppy, created for use by individual chapters of the American Red Cross. Real Life Simple (RLS) is an exciting new path embracing Phebe’s lifestyle change created by her return to school to explore the subjects of Science and Culinary leading her to adopt a plant-based diet.
