A charming collection of fist size fabric storybook-like animal dolls. These 5" dolls are just the size kids love to carry in a pocket, backpack or bag when they are on they are heading out to preschool, Grams, or wherever. A small piece of home is often a comfort to kids and these are especially cute. They’re made of soft velour-like plush and dressed in gaily patterned clothes. Choose yellow and orange-maned Lion in stripes and denim, a teal blue Elephant in striped overalls and yellow shirt, a hot pink Monkey in floral overalls and checked shirt, a shocking pink Bunny in gingham check shirt and floral skirt, Polar Bear in lavender shirt and red checked overalls, or reddish and white Fox in floral pinafore and checked shirt. All have stitched features for safety and are machine washable. We love how each of the dolls comes boxed in its own small setting designed by illustrator, Monika Forsberg. These mini settings can be opened and used as a play scene. Although we generally think toys do not need any messages, these do come with some small but gentle ideas that are worth repeating…"Lead by Example, Protect the Earth, Act with Kindness, Respect Others, Work Together, and Love to Help". Big ideas for little citizens. These make lovable props for dramatic play. 3 & up.
