Lars is a very special little caterpillar child that can grow his wings and turn into a butterfly!

Ever since the weather grew warmer, Lars has been getting hungrier and hungrier by the day. He has been chomping on green leaves everywhere. “Oh! I crawl so slowly! How I wish I can fly like the finches, so I can nibble all the leaves in the garden in a day!”

By the end of the week, Lars the caterpillar child grew very tired and sleepy. He crawled under a silk handkerchief and spun a chrysalis. He was so tired that he slept for many many days in there, dreaming of the birds and how free they are because they have wings that can carry them everywhere. As the birds chirp to welcome spring, Lars emerged from his chrysalis and was very surprise to find that he too, has grown a new set of wings! Now he is a butterfly! Oh! How happy he is!

Lars is 4.5 inches (about 11.3 cm) from the top of his head (base of antennae) to tip of his abdomen. When he is sad, his antennae droop forward. When he is happy, his antennae perk up happily.

Lars will be perfect for your Waldorf Spring Seasons Table. Small enough to hide in your hands to surprise a young child, the caterpillar child's soft velour suit makes it irresistible for a preschooler or kindergartener to grip. Removable wings are made of hand dyed wool felt. (To remove and to put on the wings, simply hold both hands to the back of the doll and slip the wings on or off). Lars will bring a wonderful surprise to the children as they watch him "nibble" leaves as a caterpillar over the days before spring, and then, voila, when the time is ripe, metamorphosize into a butterfly!

May this doll bring you and your child closer to the love of nature!
