Annicke likes to wake up really early and search the meadow for new mushrooms. Unlike a human, she can tell by scent whether they are poisonous or delicious. She picks a bunch and leaves them on Ella Toad's doorstep, then goes about her business. Then, when Ella wakes up around noon she makes a delicious mushroom omelet, which is Annicke's lunch and Ella's breakfast.
Annicke measures 14" tall. She is made of light brown organic cotton fleece, with a hand-embroidered face and striped cotton lining on her floppy ears. She is stuffed with washable fiberfill, so you can hand wash her if she gets grubby.
Annicke comes wearing an amethyst sparkle outfit. It's removable so Annicke can share and trade clothes with the other Hazel Village animals.
Your Annicke will traipse your way swaddled in a collectible bandana, with a lavender sachet tucked inside.
HOW CAN I WASH THE ANIMALS?
If your Hazel Village friend gets a little grubby, we recommend the following: First, try spot cleaning with a sponge. If that's not enough, try hand washing in hot soapy water. Rinse well, squeeze all the water out, and air dry. If necessary, you can wash your animal in the machine on the most gentle cycle. We suggest dressing it in one of our rompers, to protect their necks and extremities, then placing it in a delicates bag before it takes the plunge. You can machine dry it on low, but be careful - the stuffing may clump. Wool friends can only be washed by hand.
We stuff the regular dolls and animals with polyfill, which is clean and hypoallergenic, and stays springy for a long time even if washed in hot water. It is naturally fire-retardant, so it doesn't need to be treated with chemicals to comply with toy safety law. Custom toys made in our Brooklyn workshop can be stuffed with either wool or polyfill.
We work with an organic-certified, fair labor factory in Noida, India for our regular line. We got to spend some time with the factory owner this summer, and we were really impressed by his commitment to quality work and fair treatment of the factory workers. Monograms, limited editions, all our kids' clothes, and most doll clothes are made in Brooklyn.
