Wee Forest Folk® is a small family business that delights in producing a line of miniatures - most of which are mice! Annette Petersen crafted her first little critter in 1972. Since then her children have learned the ways of the mice and have created their own. Each figurine is hand cast from an original piece that has been sculpted by hand in clay by Annette, Willy or Donna. Talented artists are carefully selected for their delicate hand skills and meticulous painting brings each little mouse to life. An enormous amount of time and patience is invested in producing the line. Everyone involved takes personal pride in assuring the quality of each piece as it progresses through the many steps along the way to completion. More than just a little mouse figurine, each one is a true miniature work of art! Wee Forest Folk® miniature sculptures are created, produced and copyrighted by the Petersen family and are made entirely in Carlisle, Massachusetts, USA.
