Meet Stripes, a member of the Soft Hearts™ collection. She is a proud, high stepping, performing circus horse, stick puppet made from three, new, multi-colored socks. Her soft brown eyes, blue blaze, and swirling nostrils are made of hand-appliquéd felt. She is all decked out in her circus attire, which includes a bright yellow bridle that allows her head to move, bright stripes, hand-dyed, emerald green mane and bangs made from wool roving, and many vibrant pink, vintage, millinery flowers. Her neck is secured onto a dowel that is fitted at its end with a bright green, wooden handle that facilitates puppet handling and movement while preventing eye injuries to others. Stripes is a unique, one-of-a-kind, sock horse, stick puppet. She is emblazoned with the trademark red heart to represent the fact that she was lovingly designed, hand cut and hand constructed by me. She is approximately 13" tall.

Stripes loves apples, carrots, oats and hay. Her favorite pastime is to make children laugh and engage in self-expression during her puppet show performances. As you can see, she also enjoys admiring herself in the mirror. She appreciates her sense of fashion and color, if she says so herself. She's very sociable, confident, and tolerant of all sorts of gentle people and critters. Her best friend is Sprinkles, the circus sock elephant, who is also available for adoption under a separate listing.

Should you decide to adopt Stripes, she will be sent to you in clear gift wrap with colorful paper shred. She would love to serve as a teacher's aide, become a child's friend, or decorate a nook in someone's home. She is a kind and gentle soul who could bring a smile to anyone who loves plush animals and horses, in particular. Perhaps she could bring cheer to someone recovering from an illness or other rough patch in life. Stripes would also make a great birthday gift or thank you gift for someone who has touched the lives of others in a special way.

Stripes contains small parts that present a choking hazard, and she is not intended for children under the age of three. I have made custom, baby-friendly toys. You may view them in the "sales" section of my shop under "Lovie" and Princess Hayleigh."

Although Stripes is soundly constructed, she cannot withstand rough play. Stripes is not meant to bear weight, as she will easily break. She is a puppet, and she is intended to be played with as such. Please discontinue use if she sustains damage, and contact me for possible repair.

Do not machine wash Stripes. Spot clean her only.

Thank you for viewing my shop! I hope you'll stop by again.
