My brother Ju is ten years younger than me. When he was a young teenager I thought he looked a bit like Snufkin from the Moomins, in part thanks to a large bucket-type cricket hat that he sometimes wore, oh, and because of his wide nose!

When he and his wife had their son, I wanted to make something that he would keep and that would help him to understand both his dad's and uncle's love of the outdoors and all the things that went with it. So I decided to make him a Snufkin doll (Snufkin being famous for his love of the woods, outdoor living, nature and music - he played the harmonica).

Anyway, I'm sure I got more enjoyment out of making him and all his accessories than Jesse will ever get out of owning him.
