Blossom Mama and Her Petal Baby With Leaf Cradle

Mama Blossom lovingly carries her petal babies in her snug little sling pouch as she makes her Spring rounds, bringing colorful petals to all the flowers. Petal babies get very tired and their sweet mama puts them bed in a leaf cradle.
A little one could go on and on making up the most delightful stories with this play set! It would also make a wonderful piece for a spring nature table or storytelling.
Mama Blossom stands about 3 inches to the very top of her cap. Petal baby is a wee 2 inches and DOES NOT stand on it’s own, as it has a rounded bottom.
