This mini plush doll is based on the famous 1782 print "The Comical Hotch-Potch of the Alphabet turn'd Posture-Master," a learning tool for children. It shows jovial "Hotchpotch" characters contorting themselves (quite instructively, we might add) into the letters of the alphabet. As was typical at the time, J and U are omitted - most people used I and V instead. Only available in the color combination listed. Safe for all ages.

10" mini in blue and yellow velour
Children's toys of the 18th century were often intended to instruct as well as to entertain young ladies and gentlemen. The Comical Hotch-Potch of the Alphabet turn'd Posture-Master was first printed in London in 1782 by well-known publisher Carrington Bowles. An original example of the print is in the Colonial Williamsburg print collection. Following the custom of the times, the print has only 24 letters. "J" and "U" are missing as many people continued to use "I" and "V" respectively.

Baby's Favorite

by

This is our baby's favorite toy! He was 4 months when we initially bought it and he loved it from the start! He is 6 months old now, and he still loves it. Mini Hotch's arms and legs are the PERFECT size for his little hands!! I wish I could attach a picture, it is super cute. Mini Hotch has been well loved by this teething baby, and has held up well in the wash. We are planning on buying more just in case it gets misplaced!
