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: Nicholas Bear Cub in High Seas Romper
Material: Organic cotton jersey
Nicholas likes to be prepared. For instance, what if he is up in the Far Meadow, and he finds a good harvest of acorns but he has no wagon to carry them? That is why his wagon is always bumping along behind him. He says it's worth the extra effort. Plus it is shiny.
Nicholas is made from tan organic cotton fleece. His ears are lined with natural cotton muslin. His face is hand-stitched with cotton thread.
Nicholas's romper is a collaboration with special friends at Winter Water Factory. It's made from soft organic cotton and has a velcro closure in the back.
Nicholas will travel to you in a cozy muslin bag, scented with a lavender and mint sachet. If necessary you can hand-wash him and he will air dry!
