Hazel Village

ABOUT: Hazel Village

My name is Jane Van Cleef. I started Hazel Village in 2010. I knew I wanted to embark on a big creative project, but I didn't know what. One weekend, I decided to make a toy that I would have liked as a child - a cute and soft doll with a big wardrobe. I cut up some good fabric scraps in the front room of my apartment in Brooklyn, then sewed them into a tiny version of Annicke Mouse. I thought she was so cute, so I made some friends for her and started to imagine the animals' forest world.

In the years since Hazel Village started, we've expanded our ability to produce the animals responsibly, striving for heirloom quality at a reasonable price.

 I'm so lucky to get to do this every day. I love making quality toys that can stay with children as they grow up - first as soft, snuggly friends, then as companions for storytelling and dress-up play, as the inspiration for craft projects, and eventually as treasured keepsakes.

Hazel Village is named after the American Hazelnut tree: a source of delicious nuts, magical divining rods, useful twigs for basketry, and food for caterpillars.
