Jane Van Cleef started making her handcrafted animal stuffies out of her attic in Brooklyn, in 2010. She created a fantastic woodland fairytale world where animals do industrious projects for each other called Hazel Village. All the actors in this play are created from soft organic cotton. The story began here and grew into a wonderful concept and craft that children adore. The world of Hazel Village is just too much fun not to be a part of it.
