Fenton brings back the working elephant

We had been told many times the Sky Blue working elephant would be the last of the herd, and the 5123 elephant mould would amble off into extinction.  We are thrilled to be able to offer it to our members.  If you ordered early, and were told they were sold out, please call back as 19 wandered from the herd while at the Fenton factory.  They have since been rounded up and are now available for purchase.     

MouseScarf250.JPG For our Premium Members we have two Emerald Green mice from which to choose.  On the left is "Dottie" with blue and green dots in her ears.  They coordinate with the striped scarf she is wearing to ward off the cold.  On the right is "All is Calm" with a cozy winter scene.  "All is Calm" has Sold Out, and "Dottie" is in limited supply.
