My daughter got this little toy mole today on her name day.
“Krtek” is made on the lathe from a piece of birch and is about 6 cm high (~2 ’’). The feet and hands are attached to short pieces of black cotton rope glued into the body. The body is painted with Humrol enamel hobby paints.
The Mole (in the Czech original called Krtek) is an animated character in a series of cartoons, created by Czech animator Zdeněk Miler in 1956. Since its inception, the cartoon won itself an enormous popularity in many Central European countries, as well as India, China, Russia and Japan, due its distinct lack of dialogue.
