LUCAS RABBIT

Even thought Lucas Rabbit's real name is Lucas, his friends call him Pummy. He says it's because when he was a newborn and his sister was a toddler, she called him Pummy for some reason. Anyway, his favorite activity is digging holes in the pond beach so he can make swamp forts.

Pummy is made from brown organic cotton fleece with a soft flannel texture. His nose and tail are natural colored fleece, and his ears are lined with cotton shirting stripe. The stripes in his ears might be a little smaller than the ones pictured. He measures 15" including ears. His eyes and nose are hand stitched with cotton thread. He is stuffed with washable polyfill so he can be hand washed if he gets dirty (you know how those swamp forts can be....)

Pummy's romper is made of "stormy gray" organic cotton/hemp blend. It's ideal for a baby because it's hard to tear off, and it has no hard components that could fall off. It closes with velcro in the back, and it has a place for an animal's tail to stick out. It is removable so Pummy can share and trade clothes with the other Hazel Village animals. And we offer a matching version of this romper for babies.

Your Pummy will travel to you in a reusable cotton bag, with a delightful smelling lavender and mint 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.

WHAT ARE THEY STUFFED WITH?

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.

WHERE ARE THEY MADE?

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.

ARE THEY SAFE FOR BABIES?

The animals are suitable for all ages, because their faces are embroidered and they are soft. But if you leave an animal with a very young child, please remove any loose doll clothes (socks, scarves, hats, etc) that the baby could rip off and eat
