Spread some holiday magic with this one-of-a-kind gift.
The Nutcracker Ballet's darling Clara drives a 10-passenger bus filled with her beloved dolls (plus 1 imposter!)
This enchanting Nutcracker peg doll set celebrates the beauty and diversity of the Nutcracker ballet. Eleven peg dolls are individually hand painted to represent characters from the beloved holiday story. The largest peg doll, Clara, is about 2 1/4 inches tall, while the 10 remaining dolls are each 1 5/8 inches. The dolls slide in and out of peg holes in the 8 1/2 x 2 3/4 x 1 1/2 – inch solid wooden bus with wheels that turn.
Clara’s dolls are hand painted to represent Sugar Plum, Spanish, Chinese, Mirliton, Russian, Arabian, Flowers, Snow Prince, and her beloved new Nutcracker. Look closely, a mouse from the Rat King’s army has infiltrated the group!
The peg dolls and bus have been treated with a sealant to maintain their brightly painted colors, so they are not intended for very small children or anyone who would be tempted to put the pieces in their mouth. Rather, they are an heirloom-quality keepsake for a dancer who has/will perform multiple roles over the years, or for anyone who loves to watch the magical annual performance.
