Is it a cat, a rabbit, what is it? It is a Tailypo! Inspired by the wonderful old Appalacian ghost story Tailypo this little wooden guy is not for the faint at heart!

I love this old tale so much and we have fun telling it in the fall around a fire! Tailypo is handmade from poplar wood in the Waldorf tradition with AP certified non-toxic watercolors and then sealed up with beeswax polish.

I made Tailypo with a wool/acrylic furry crochet tail that is actually removable- if you know the story you know why! It is designed to be removed and replaced instead of glued in, but this would be best for an older child- plus the story is a bit scary!

There are many re-tellings of the story, we love the print Galdone version the best, but just ask your local storyteller to tell you this one! I will include a paper copy of the story that I found in the listing- the Galdone book is not included.

Note this is a stock photo- your own Tailypo will look almost identical with its own handmade goodness! made to order- please check shop home for current turnaround times
