This week, we’ll take a closer look at another beloved member of Chrisville: Velvel Fox.

Fun facts: The Velvel Fox picture book series is, of course, fictional, but this toy is based on something real. My great-grandfather used to tell my grandmother bedtime stories that always began with “Once upon a time, Velvel Fox…” Velvel Fox was, apparently, a boy that he knew from his childhood. My grandmother went on to tell similar stories to her own children, including my father. My dad didn’t continue the tradition with me, but he did tell me about it.
