"...West Philadelphia born and raised, on the playground is where I spent most of my days"...
-Will Smith

Clark is a huggable, squeezable pillow version of the concrete turtle who lives in Clark Park, between 43rd & 44th, Baltimore and Chester Avenue. It has been there for decades, I wonder how long exactly?

We photographed it, manipulated the image and tinted it blue, had multiples printed (by an online service) on sturdy 100% cotton twill, cut them out, backed them with wavy-striped 100% cotton calico in earth tones, stitched them up with our trusty 1950s Kenmore (purchased from a yard sale at 46th & Springfield) and stuffed them with new poly fiberfill.

Great for all ages, Clark is a perfect gift for a Tot Lot buddy or a unique souvenir from West Philly.

Measures about 17.5 inches from nose to tail.

Also available at the Emporium. Stop by, won't you? Open Tuesday-Saturday.
