This whimsical toadstool mushroom is irresistible to little hands...and those with active imaginations!

Children enjoy using mushrooms to create wonder-filled scenes as they play with their gnomes, fairies, and miniature animals.

The mushrooms also make a delightful addition to a nature table or indoor forest scene.

At 2 1/2" x 2 1/2", this red-capped mushroom is made from high-quality, 100% wool felt. It is lightly stuffed with wool from sheep that I raised; and is carefully hand-embroidered using the blanket-stitch around all endges.

The mushroom cap has three hand-embroidered white spots that are firmly attached. All stitching is done with all natural, cotton embroidery floss. The pattern is my own design.

This mushroom would make a wonderful addition to a holiday/Christmas stocking, or a present for anyone who loves mushrooms.

For parents and educators, there are many authors who feature toadstool mushrooms in stories that could be used in conjunction with this toy.

Perhaps the most endearing books that have illustrations featuring toadstool mushrooms are by Elsa Beskow. Three titles of books that she wrote that would be nice companions to this toy are:
- Children of the Forest
- Around the Year
- Woody, Hazel and Little Pip

There's another story about the fly agaric mushroom that focuses on the holidays. It is said that God Wotan was riding his horse at Christmas time, and suddendly he ws followed by devils. The horse started galloping, and red-dotted foam was running down from its mouth. Wherever the foam fell, the next year the well-known white-dotted red hats of the fly agaric mushroom started to come up.

Also, on the island of Rugen on the Baltic Sea, the former Slavic war god St. Veit (or Svantovitus) was worshipped as the patron saint of mushrooms. The Slav said that he was accompanied by good goblins that let mushrooms grow. St. Veit is considered the protector of the fields. He carries a cornucopia and, like Wotan, rides on a white horse. From the horse's foam all the mushrooms grow.
