Meet "Mr. Loppy McLumpy" 2014 APP Holiday Collector Series Doll - 15th in the Collection

  He was asked by his wife to please get baskets filled with colored eggs for the wee bunnies who will be coming to visit soon. He sat out on his porch so he didn’t get straw all over the house. He got one finished and then he heard the mail wagon pull up. Oh my! It’s here! It’s the new spring issue of A Primitive Place magazine! He always gets it before Mrs. McLumpy. He loves reading recipes and craft ideas, and although he might not let her know, he loves the decorating ideas too! He brought it with him out to the barn and will enjoy it cover-to-cover before he brings it in the house! He stands a foot tall and has a lumpy, bumpy belly. The green in his homespun scarf accents his big ole Easter egg!
  He will come to you signed and dated by Lana Testa. He is $34.00 which includes travel fare for USA residents only. All others please email winterberryprimz@aol.com for pricing or if additional info. is needed.
