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.

22" medium in purple and green 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.
