These hedgehogs are fabulous! He's got a rather full little tummy and is hibernating and sleeping soundly in a very comfortable box. He's a prickly cute character! The spikes are cleverly achieved using a special mohair that has been stiffened so it has a spiky feel (not sharp). Thistle has some time worn accessories, I wonder if he got the gold star for running? He is made from a very fine minky fur. Black glass eyes, weighted and jointed. He's approx. 8 inches/21 cm in stood position.
