In the summertime when flowers bloom in the meadow, Fern traipses there with her gathering basket and her flower press. She says she is trying to find every kind of flower that grows there. She also has a field guide with the names of the flowers. Her favorite is a tiny purple flower with a minty smell. It has many names, including ground ivy, catsfoot, and run-away-robin.
Deep in a leafy grove, the clever animals of Hazel Village live in their neat little houses, happy and free. They keep their perky ears attuned to the sounds of their forest home, and use their wits to do helpful and kind projects for their neighbours.
At Hazel Village everyone does their best to follow the good example of the animals. The company and the animals have the same core values: they are resourceful, clever, jolly, diligent, and considerate. They make sure that everyone who works with them is fairly paid and works in good conditions.
Fern is made of organic cotton jersey. She is 14 inches tall, sized to share clothes with all the other Hazel Village animals. Her face and toes are hand embroidered with cotton thread. Her cheeks are a little bit pink. She's stuffed with washable poly fill.
