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: Owen Fox
Material: Organic cotton jersey
Reginald is a creature of habit: Every morning he tends his market garden. He has a shiny blue watering can, and a shiny red bucket for any slugs he finds. When he is done for the day he carries the slug bucket to the forest edge, and lets his slug friends go. After lunch, he rows his boat into the pond and drops anchor in a shady spot, where he naps and thinks about his novel.
He is made of organic cotton fleece, with white fleece on his nose and tail. He measures about 15 inches, ear to toe. He is stuffed with washable fiberfill. His eyes, nose, and whiskers are hand embroidered with cotton thread. If and when he gets scuffed or grimy, he can be hand-washed and he will air dry.
