An adventurous rhino, Riley always seems to be getting into something or other. He often has his nose buried in a jar of blackberry jam. He mischievously digs up his neighbor Ms. Giraffe's flower bed looking for gold rocks. Spending his afternoons building the tallest sky-scraper out of pop-sicle sticks are what keep him busy most days.
Through all of his many adventures, he never forgets to act like the gentleman his mother taught him to be. He demonstrates his good manners by carrying the little birdies on his horns across the stream when their wings get tired. Such a good rhino.
I designed Riley completely by hand one cold, wintry afternoon, but he has a warm heart and would love to go home with you. He is made of 100 percent wool felt, which means he resists fuzzies very well and is hand stitched with hand-dyed, pearl cotton Valdani thread. His underbelly is made of a multi-colored, blue polka-dot, cotton fabric and his tail is hand braided. Navy blue french knots make up his eyes as well as his charming smile, (He gets it from his dad).
Riley measures approximately 8.5" inches long, 4.25" inches tall by 3.25" inches wide. A machined stitched safety bag of rice sits inside his belly to give him weight,(also on reserve for when he gets hungry on his many adventures) and 100% organic cotton fibers are what make him lovable and huggable.
Riley is the perfect gift for a new baby. He makes a great deco arrive piece for a nursery or can sit handsomely on a bookshelf.
