We're pleased to introduce Ignatius the Critter, who comes to you all the way from India. (He is a fair-trade product brought to life by craftswomen in Gujarat.)
Ignatius is a very curious critter and loves to explore and sniff out new adventures with his pointy little nose. If you ever go on a trip to a new place, Ignatius is a very good companion because he is brave and adventurous and always discovers new and fun things to do!
Ignatius is a very good climber and his long spindly legs mean that he can wrap himself excellently around tree branches or play equipment - he does, however, have a little trouble balancing when he walks, and you may need to hold one of his hands to help him along.
Ignatius is extremely ticklish and has a contagious laugh. If ever Ignatius is in a sad mood, just tickle the bottoms of his feet. This will definitely cheer him up.
Before Ignatius was a fully-grown critter, he lived inside a cocoon for 3 months, just like a butterfly. Should you ever find Ignatius down at the very end of your bed, hiding under your sheets and blankets, don’t worry: he isn’t upset. He is just pretending that he is back in his cocoon in India.
Critters love thunderstorms, and although they really don’t like to get wet, they love to listen to the thunder from inside the house. Whenever there is a thunderstorm, make sure that Ignatius is somewhere where he can hear it. Window sills are best.
You can’t really tell from looking at them, but Critters are excellent dancers, and Ignatius is especially good at it. Just put on some music and Ignatius will dance with you all day long!
Ignatius the Critter was first dreamt up by a little boy or girl, just like you, but on the other side of the world in a little village in India.
