Rien, tomten doll
This is Rien, we spotted him first around the house - and even once inside the house. He is a really friendly guy and his miner's pickaxe is really only for gold-winning. He is not too large, but he is certainly not what you would say a small gnome: he is 11-3/4 inch / 30cm long (without hat)).
He is made with a natural woolen body and filled with real sheep wool as well. His head is tightly filled; his body less so to keep it really soft and nimble; He is great fun for toddlers or children. Of course, he can also be used as decoration, but he is so nice to touch, that he will move around in your or others' hands anyway! His pickaxe is made from pine wood, but still it's not for children under 3.
His red gnome hat cannot be taken off. His cotton shirt (and leather belt) can.
Rien costs 50 €. Please contact me if you would like to purchase him (or order a custom made doll) - or you can purchase it through my shop at etsy.com.
