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: Reginald 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 orange organic cotton fleece with a brushed flannel texture, and stuffed with washable polyfill. His nose and the tip of his tail are white, and his ears are lined with striped black cotton. He is 15" from ear to toe. His eyes and nose are hand-embroidered with cotton thread. If necessary, you can hand-wash Reginald.
Reginald's shorts are made of khaki cotton twill with a velcro closure in the back and a perfect spot for his tail to poke through. His snazzy fringed scarf is made of cotton jersey and like all of the Hazel Village animal clothes, Reginald's outfit is removable so the animals can share and trade!
Reginald will come your way in a reusable cotton bag, with a lavender and mint sachet tucked inside. All this will be inside a box, of course, but he hears this is a good way to travel because you get a lot of time to think.
