Wee Forest Folk is a
local family business begun by Mrs. Annette Petersen over 30 years
ago. Mrs. Petersen’s devotion to producing the
highest-quality collectibles grew to incorporate supporting the historic
sites in Concord she dearly loved by producing figurines exclusively designed
for them to sell.
Inspiration for Orchard House’s line of “Scrabble” figurines came
straight from Louisa May Alcott's most beloved novel, Little Women, which was written and set in Orchard House in 1868
Jo was very busy in the garret … while Scrabble,
the pet rat, promenaded the beams overhead, accompanied by his oldest
son, a fine
who was evidently very proud of his whiskers.
~Chapter 14, "Secrets"
More than a dozen production
-- including meticulous hand-painting -- are required to manufacture
each piece. These figurines are real little gems, treasured by
generations of Wee Forest Folk collectors as well as Little Women fans. Each purchase comes with the famous Wee Forest Folk box and card
along with “special handling” from Orchard House!
