Hazel Village handcrafts heirloom quality stuff animals responsibly & at a reasonable price. Jane Van Cleef, the creative mind behind the line, loves making quality toys that can stay with children as they grow up - first as soft, snuggly friends, then as companions for storytelling and dress-up play, as the inspiration for craft projects (kid-made clothes, furniture, etc. for the animals), and eventually as treasured keepsakes.
Character: Lucy Owl in Blue Skirt and Bonnet
Material: Organic cotton jersey
Lucy Owl has developed a regimen of morning exercises that increase upper body strength. Every morning, she does them in the meadow in front of her house. She wants to set a good example for the other animals, because she thinks they're a little spindly. They are not too interested, even though she tells them the better their upper body strength, the better the foraging.
Lucy is made of gray organic cotton fleece, with natural wing tips and face. Her legs and beak are green organic cotton jersey. She is stuffed with washable polyfill, so she can be hand washed and air dried if she gets dirty. Her eyes are embroidered with cotton embroidery floss. She measures about 14".
Lucy comes wearing a red cotton bonnet, and a soft blue cotton skirt wIth white spots woven in. Lucy's outfit is removable so the animals can share and trade clothes - she looks great in many different outfits, although shoes and socks don't fit her so well because her feet are a different shape. But her wings fit into sleeves surprisingly well.
Lucy will travel to your home in a reusable cotton bag, with a delightful lavender and mint sachet tucked inside. To make your Lucy extra special, we can add a hand-stitched monogram on her heart if you like.
