With Greetings from Mother Goose, Bedtime Bear and Bunny, My Honey.
Most children would probably agree that a stuffed animal must feel soft. The Senger geese, bears and rabbits are winners all the way when it comes to being cuddly because the plush fabric made of cotton is so fluffy and pleasant to the touch. The animals are stuffed with pure new sheep's wool, which Volker and Sabine Senger get from the roving shepherds in the Eifel mountains in western Germany whom they know personally. The geese, bears and rabbits are not stuffed too tight, though, so that their long legs and arms can swing about when being carried around.?The small goose is a particular favourite with children and is bound to be dragged by the throat across the floor like some kind of "trophy". Both, small and large goose, are a cuddly toy, pillow and warming cushion all in one. Inside each goose, there is a removable cotton pillow. The larger animal, popular not only with children, has a cotton pillow filled with spelt chaff from controlled biological cultivation, while the smaller one contains cherry stones. Amongst other things, heated spelt chaff soothes abdominal pain, while cherry stones, can be used to cool as well as to warm up. Before heating, the spelt chaff or cherry stone pillow should be removed from the cloth animal and then, wrapped in a cotton or linen cloth, heated on the heater, a tile stove or in the oven (maximum temperature: warm to the touch).
