With fabric knitted and dyed in France and handmade in a workshop in Brittany, Helmut the Pig is quite a character. His story goes that he was born in Oberammergau, a charming village situated in the Bavarian mountains. Contrary to what one might think, Helmut is elegant and clean with a light beige pink coat and stitched features. Despite his stubborn air, Helmut is extremely clever. He can also be quite a prankster. For example, he loves to push big stones discreetly down the hill, which tumble down hitting hard the shins of hikers trekking by. As no adult would ever contemplate in suspecting a pig of such treachery, he never gets caught. And of course, this greatly amuses all the children in the village.
