If you ask Gracie what her favorite activity is, she will tell you: fishing. She has loved it ever since she was a kitten. She says on a good afternoon, she can catch a dozen minnows. When she has enough she takes her fish to Owen Fox’s house, and the animals have a fish fry. Although some of them eat only salad. Gracie says that is fine; more fish for her.
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.
Gracie is about 14″ tall. She is made of organic cotton fleece, mostly gray but with natural-colored details on her face and tummy. Her ears are lined with cotton plaid. Her face is hand-stitched with cotton embroidery thread. She is stuffed with polyfill. If she gets dirty she can be hand washed in cool water and air dried. She wants to remind you she sticks her feet in the pond all the time - you shouldn’t believe what you hear about cats hating water.
