May I introduce Mortimer Whipplewhistle? Hes an old-style jumping jack toy cobbled together from cigar boxes, coat hangers and such.



Hes very fond of sleeping when he is not busy pontificating on trivial and nonsensical topics. But if you want to wake him up, you can just pull the dangling marble.



He was a bit of a vexation to me; should have been an easy build but wasnt!

Mortimer was created for the young daughter of a co-worker, who celebrated her birthday this weekend.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

How lovely! I love everything about it....the style, the painting, the marble, the eyes.
Great work. I'm so in love with him.
