Oliver Mouse Doll - Red Bonnet
Oliver likes to practice accordion after breakfast. He says he's been playing for about two and a half years, so he's getting pretty good. Now that Ella Toad is learning the recorder, they want to play duets together. They're practicing "The Eensy Weensy Spider," which they hope to play at Emma Rabbit's next tea party. It still needs some work.
Oliver is made of gray organic cotton fleece. His eyes and nose are hand stitched with cotton thread. He is stuffed with polyfill, so you can hand wash him and he will air dry, no worse for the wear.
- 14" tall
- Materials: organic cotton fleece, organic cotton jersey, polyfill
- Hand wash, air dry
Hazel Village started in 2010 as a creative project by maker and designer Jan Van Cleef. One day she made a toy that she would have liked as a child out of scraps in the front room of her apartment in Brooklyn. She started making more for friends and started listing her dolls on Etsy, each with its own little outfit and back story. In the years since, she has expanded her business by finding responsible makers and never sacrificing heirloom quality at a reasonable price. Hazel Village is named after the American Hazelnut tree: a source of delicious nuts, magical divining rods, useful twigs for basketry, and food for caterpillars.
