While taking a stroll in the park, I was lucky enough to come across a Four Armed Eastern Groffet. This is a cousin to the well known Wooly Groffets to the north. Eastern groffets tend to be very laid back because they only work one month out of the year. While April showers are famous for providing us with May flowers, we often forget they also provide pretty spectacular jump and splash puddles. Eastern groffets take puddle maintenance very seriously. In fact, over 40 eastern groffets had to be hired to do off season puddle work for the movie Singing in the Rain to get just the right amount of puddle splash. True story. The rest of the year they mostly relax in the forest and tell tales of the puddle business over acorn-moss stir fry brunches.

This Groffet is an original design, hand made, and gently stuffed with polyfill.

4 armed
2 footed

Width (hand to hand): 15 inches
Length (horn to foot): 10 inches

I just love all of these beautiful colored creatures! There's a great article about an artist in Soft Dolls and Animals Magazine, who makes creatures similar to yours. She felts them and uses kool-aid dyed animal hair for hers. They're really cool. You should check her out. Her name is Kasey Sorsby a.k.a. Tanglewood Thicket Creations.

Here's a link for one of her fabulous creations.
(If I were you, I'd take this comparison as a compliment.)
