Oliver likes to
practice accordion after breakfast. He says he's been playing for about two and
a half years, so he's getting pretty good. Now that Ella Toad is learning the
recorder, they want to play duets together. They're practicing "The Eensy
Weensy Spider," which they hope to play at Emma Rabbit's next tea party.
It still needs some work.
Oliver is made of gray organic cotton fleece. He's about 14" tall. His eyes, nose, and whiskers are hand stitched with cotton thread. He is stuffed with polyfill, so you can hand wash him and he will air dry, no worse for the wear. Oliver's lucky hat is made from green organic cotton. As you can see it has spaces for his ears, and a spiffy red and orange tassel on top. His scarf is made of striped cotton jersey. Both of those things are removable so the animals can share and trade, but Oliver says for the record, he doesn't share his lucky hat with just anyone. He's a pretty nice guy though, don't get the wrong idea.
