Miss Hippo Forget-Me-Not H-1s
by Wee Forest Folk

IN STOCK!

Sassy Miss Hippo was originally sculpted in 1974 when Annette had fun sculpting all different kinds of animals. Miss Hippo was retired in 1977. She makes a re-appearance wearing a pretty pink dress. Piece measures 2.5 inches tall and 1.5 inches wide. As a special bonus, each Forget-Me-Not edition comes with a hologram sticker, a certificate of authenticity and a little note from Annette.

‘One dreary day this past winter, a walk down memory lane led me back in time when these old friends gained your love and acceptance. Perhaps they deserve a chance to perform one final encore! To commemorate my 95th birthday, I have chosen eight favorites and named them Annette's "Forget-me-nots." They are appearing for a limited time in newly colored garments and special bases so as not to rival your early originals.’  -Annette Petersen, Founder of WFF

Wee Forest Folk - Collectible Miniature Mice, Bears, Bunnies And Other Delightful Critters

The Petersens of Wee Forest FolkStarted in 1972 by Annette Petersen in her old-fashioned kitchen on a farm in Carlisle, Massachusetts, Wee Forest Folk® is a small family business that delights in producing amazing entirely handcrafted miniatures, mostly mice. Annette is amazing and this year turns 100 years old. She is still very spry and witty, continuing to sculpt and work at the mouse factory. Willy and Donna Petersen (pictured above) continue to create these wonderful characters at their workshop in Carlisle, Massachussets.

A tiny original piece is hand-sculpted in clay by one of the Petersens then hand cast. Talented artists bring each tiny sculpture to life with meticulously detailed and delicate features. An enormous amount of time and patience is invested in each creations and everyone involved takes personal pride in the quality of their work.

Wee Forest Folk sculptures are 1 to 2.5 inches in height. Each little treasure is handcrafted entirely in Carlisle, Massachusetts.

How Wee Forest Folk Are Created

A Wee Forest Folk mouse begins as an original clay piece which is hand sculpted by one of three sculptors in the Petersen family. The finished sculpture is molded and hand cast at the "mouse factory" in Carlisle, MA. Carefully selected artists flawlessly paint each one by hand bringing to life a sweet little mouse personality. Wee Forest Folk began as a cottage industry in 1972 and it continues to this day.

Continuing The Tradition

Growing up surrounded by their mother's creative influences son, Willy and daughter, Donna began to develop their own artistic talents. After graduating from college in the late 1970's, both joined their mother's enterprise and the next generation had begun! All three family members have their own style as sculptors and are very supportive of each other's creative endeavors. The Petersens feel especially grateful to have the opportunity to use and express their creativity in making these tiny and charming mouse miniatures and they extend their warmest appreciation to all of their collectors.
