Anthropomorphism, the attributes of human
characteristics, motivation and/or behavior to inanimate
objects, animals, or natural phenomena (Websters).
Well, we cant really comment definitively on the inanimate
objects and/or natural phenomena (although we have our personal
suspicions), but we CAN emphatically confirm that the animal
folk think and feel the same stuff that we do (all the animals
Art and I have ever shared our lives with would certainly
agree). So, with that understanding, we would like to share
with you some of the more interesting characters that we
have encountered. Keep an eye on this planet,
because we suspect that it will become more populated as
time goes by.
and Mortimer Mole are about as unlikely a pair as
you could find. Foxy is the perfect example of sly
as a fox, while Mortimer is a somewhat slow
witted, congenial fellow. Perpetually sleepy, he would
never suspect anyone of anything unpleasant. As unalike
as they are, they still tend to seek each other out
for an evening of poker (actually Foxy does the seeking).
Poor, unsuspecting Mortimer does occasionally wonder
why he so rarely ever wins a hand, but the thought
of Foxy maybe keeping something up his sleeve, (or
behind his back in this case) never enters Mortys
trusting mind. The pair come with a table
with porcelain cards on it and they tend to play long
into the night (with poor Morty just getting sleepier).

that devilish dog - brings new meaning to that old
saying every dog has his day, for Roland
has many days, and nights too, if rumors are to
be believed. A fellow of many talents, he claims
lineage dating back to a hound belonging to Casanova,
which is how he explains his astounding finesse
and charm with the ladies. He and his other Stick
People friends are entirely handmade by three
gentlemen living in the Black Forest Region of Bavaria.
They hand split the shingles that they
use for making their people and still
mix their paint/glue by hand from the same formula
used centuries ago by the village people. Please
do not confuse these unique, one-of-a-kind pieces
with the more readily available reproductions on
