Augustus Wild Boar says he is "quite chuffed" to attend the tea parties in the Village. The other animals aren't sure where he learned that term, because he has never actually been to England. But he is a nice friend and a helpful guest, although he does eat extraordinarily many sandwiches. They've started making extra sandwiches for tea parties, so their friend Augustus can have as many as he wants.

Description

Augustus Wild Boar says he is "quite chuffed" to attend the tea parties in the Village. The other animals aren't sure where he learned that term, because he has never actually been to England. But he is a nice friend and a helpful guest, although he does eat extraordinarily many sandwiches. They've started making extra sandwiches for tea parties, so their friend Augustus can have as many as he wants.

Augustus is made from organic cotton fleece - tan with brown details on his hooves and back stripes. He has white tusks, too, and some tan bristles on top of his head. His ears are aqua and ivory striped organic cotton. He's stuffed with washable polyfill, and his face is hand stitched with cotton embroidery floss. His tail has a little bit of elastic in it to keep it curly.

More to the Story

Jane Van Cleef started Hazel Village in 2010 with her own two hands. She set out to make the toys she would have wanted as a child: soft and cute, with a rigorous commitment to immersive, low-tech play.

Hazel Village does its best to follow the good example of the animals. The company and the animals have the same core values: be resourceful, clever, jolly, diligent, and considerate.

 In addition to a full-time sewing team in Brooklyn, Hazel Village works with teams of talented artisans in Nepal, India, Cambodia, and Peru to create beautiful products made with skill, care and love. When someone cares about their work, it really shows. Hazel Village is committed to ensuring that wherever its products are made, the workers make a living wage and enjoy good working conditions and policies. So they partner with several social enterprise factories that offer benefits like education and social services to their workers.

Safety & Care

Augustus is made of organic fleece, organic cotton and elastic in his tail, with polyfill stuffing. His overalls are made of organic cotton with an elastic waist. Because his face is embroidered, there are no hard components that could present a choking hazard. Augustus is suitable for all ages, but please remove any loose doll clothing (like hats, shoes, socks, and scarves) before leaving him with a small baby.

If Augustus gets a little grubby, we recommend the following: First, try spot cleaning with a sponge. If that's not enough, try hand washing in hot soapy water. Rinse well, squeeze all the water out, and air dry. If necessary, you can wash him in the machine on the most gentle cycle. We suggest dressing him in a romper, to protect his neck and extremities, then placing him in a delicates bag before he takes the plunge. You can machine dry Augustus on low, but be careful - his stuffing may clump.
