Max has a hollow tree behind his house. He has installed numerous shelves and cubbyholes inside it, and there he keeps cool things that he finds: bits of crockery that he makes into wind chimes, good paper bags he's saving, presents from his friends, jars of pickles and jam, etc.
Max is made of organic cotton with a brushed flannel texture, mostly gray, with black details on his tail and mask. His snout is the same organic cotton fleece in white. His ears are lined with cotton shirting. His eyes and nose are hand-stitched with cotton thread. He is stuffed with washable polyfill. He measures about 14" from feet to ears.
Max comes wearing organic cotton overalls with a pocket, which comes in very handy for storing his treasures. Max's outfit is removable and fits the other Hazel Village animals if he's feeling generous.
About Hazel Village:
"I started Hazel Village in 2010, making the toys I would have wanted as a child. I got overwhelmed by the demand, and soon my college roommate Emma agreed to help me grow the business. Now we both have kids, we have a store, and we have sent so many animals far and wide!
It’s important to us to run the business in a way we would want our kids to see. So we partner with social enterprises around the world to make our products. These organizations have missions to empower artisans with job skills, dignified work, and fair wages. It definitely costs a bit more to make toys this way, but we believe it’s worth it. We find that when workerscare about their craft, it shows in their beautiful work."
