Rainbow Hedgehogs, geared to ages 4-7, is a story of a momma hedgehog caught in a raging storm while preparing for her new little hoglets to arrive. Momma finds shelter in what appears to be a rusty old pot. As the storm rolls away, the pot starts to glow and Momma discovers she is in “the” legendary golden pot at the start of a rainbow. As each of the rainbows’ bright colors take form, a new little hoglet is born, each with the special attributes of their rainbow color. The Rainbow Hedgehogs adventures transport them around the world, to new friends in need of a little special help.
The patented feature allows each Rainbow Hedgehog to curl into a furry lucky charm, one for every color of the rainbow. Open to reveal enchanting little hedgehogs that can be posed in many adorable positions.
