These four wonderful characters are from one of my favourite stories from my childhood, The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame
You can't help but fall in love with each of them as I am sure your children will too, and will invent many new adventures to take them on.
Meet Mole, who because of his dislike for spring cleaning decides to leave his underground home to get some fresh air, on his travels he meets Rat who is actually a water vole and who spends all his time on or in the river. Rat or Ratty as he is affectionately known, takes Mole for a ride in his row boat and Mole spends his time with Ratty learning about the river. One day they go to visit Toad who lives at Toad Hall. Toad is a wealthy, friendly and kind hearted Toad but becomes obssessed with the latest fads and convinces Mole and Rat to join him on a journey. They go in search of the elusive Badger and so the adventure continues.
The characters measure approx 19-23cms
