Max has a hollow tree behind his house. He has installed numerous shelves and cubbyholes inside it, and there he keeps cool things that he finds: bits of crockery that he makes into wind chimes, good paper bags he's saving, presents from his friends, jars of pickles and jam, etc.
Max is made of organic cotton with a brushed flannel texture, mostly gray, with black details on his tail and mask. His snout is the same organic cotton fleece in white. His ears are lined with cotton shirting. His eyes and nose are hand-stitched with cotton thread. He is stuffed with washable polyfill. He measures about 14" from feet to ears.
Hazel Village was started in 2010 by Jane Van Cleef. She always loved making things, and found inspiration for Hazel village in what she loved growing up. Annicke Mouse was the first Hazel Village doll, and after making a few more woodland friends, the world of Hazel Village became clear to her.
In the four years since Hazel Village started, they've expanded their ability to produce the animals responsibly, striving for heirloom quality at a reasonable price.
Hazel Village is named after the American Hazelnut tree: a source of delicious nuts, magical divining rods, useful twigs for basketry, and food for caterpillars.
