The partnership is exclusive. Based on Maurice Sendak’s Caldecott Medal winner The “Where the Wild Things Are” collection will be led by “Max” who will be made entirely of 100% wool felt and fully jointed.
Standing approximately 8″ tall, Max will have a distinctive custom face mold, a black mohair wig, and delicately hand painted features. He will come costumed in his all-felt removable wolf costume as shown in the illustration with his crown and scepter, the company announced.
The three Wild Things – “Moishe”, “Bernard”, and “Tzippy” – will accompany Max on his adventure. They are made entirely of wool felt and plush fabrics. The Wild Things will be fully jointed and will stand approximately 11″ tall. Each will have molded hand painted features, fearsome claws and teeth, delicate airbrushed shading, and leather-covered hand painted eyes. Long story short, they will be made out of top quality materials and will look as close to the original characters as possible.
