Presenting "Le Petit Prince™" - a delightful new cabinet-size rendition of the classic character by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry!
The name of Saint-Exupéry endures because of a rather strange little book he wrote just before he died in 1944. Le Petit Prince
(The Little Prince) has something of Hans Christian Andersen in it,
something of Lewis Carroll, and even a bit of Paul Bunyan. It is often
lyrical... sometimes profound... and completely unique. It is sometimes
called 'a children's book for adults.' However it is classified, The Little Prince is a literary classic beloved by millions.
The Little Prince™ was originally produced by R.
John Wright Dolls in 1983 as an exclusive edition for The Toy Shoppe. A
second edition was introduced in the year 2000 to celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the author's birth.
The newest version of this beloved character is titled 'Le Petit Prince™'
and measures a diminutive 8 1/2 inches tall. Made of the finest
all-wool felt, he is fully jointed with the RJW ball & socket system
with internal wood mechanism. The molded felt torso and limbs are sculptural defined and the tiny expressive hands have
individually-sewn fingers. His molded felt face is delicately hand
painted and the blonde wig is meticulously hand-knotted of the finest
Le Petit Prince is outfitted in the iconic costume depicted by
Saint-Exupéry of a belted jumpsuit and a flowing greatcoat tailored of
the finest custom-dyed all-wool felt with tiny star epaulets. He wears
a custom-made decorative pewter medallion at his throat and fine
hand-cobbled leather boots. In one hand, our little prince holds his
very own custom-made sword of the finest polished pewter.
