"Nana" - the first piece in our exciting new Peter Pan Collection Is back in Production!
PETER PAN, or THE BOY WHO WOULDN'T GROW UP (1904) is the title of Scottish playwright and novelist James M. Barrie's most famous play, and PETER & WENDY is the title of Barrie's 1911 novelization of it. Both tell the fanciful story of Peter Pan, a mischievous little boy who refuses to grow up. Did we mention that he can also fly?! Late one evening Peter steals into the London nursery of Wendy Darling and her younger brothers, John and Michael, and spirits them away to exciting adventures on the island of Neverland.
"Nana" is the nursemaid of Wendy, John, and Michael Darling, hired by their parents to look after their children. A lovable Saint Bernard, Nana was played in the original stage production - and the 1924 silent film adaptation - by an actor in a dog suit. Nana is the first character we encounter in the Peter Pan story and she is also the premiere piece in the R. John Wright Peter Pan series.
Extensively researched for the utmost in authenticity, Nana is made of the finest wool and alpaca plush and sits approximately 9 1/2 inches tall. Realistically detailed, she has a molded face with delicate airbrushed markings, glass pupil eyes, and inset whiskers. Her neck features a ball & socket joint for expressive posing. Nana's limbs include paw pads and individually-applied nails made of molded, treated felt. Atop her head she wears her dainty nurse's cap made of fine Swiss embroidered lace interwoven with black silk ribbon. No detail has been spared to bring this adorable literary character vividly to life!
