Nicholas likes to be prepared. For instance, what if he is up in the Far Meadow, and he finds a good harvest of acorns but he has no wagon to carry them? That is why his wagon is always bumping along behind him. He says it's worth the extra effort. Plus it is shiny.
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.
Nicholas is 14" tall and made from tan organic cotton fleece. His ears are lined with natural cotton muslin. His face is hand-stitched with cotton thread. If he gets grimy you can hand-wash him and he will air dry.
