Here comes VLAD the vampire bat!

Back in the day, when VLAD was a very young bat, he was looking for the meaning of life, when another bat crossed his path … Batman! Soon VLAD became Batman’s sidekick (of course long before Robin entered the scene). However, before long, VLAD found out that Batman just wears a costume and can’t even fly properly! What a bitter disappointment! So he moved on and, with the gathered experience from countless dangerous adventures, he started his career in the movie business as the stunt double for the legendary Bela Lugosi. Some years and one tooth-surgery later (for a correction of some peculiar misaligned teeth), he actually became a well known movie star! You’ve probably seen him in “Nosferatu“, “The fearless Vampire Killers” or “Dracula“.
After a while, he felt pretty annoyed about the completely false representation of vampires in horror movies! Sure, vampires avoid garlic - but only because they want to save their environment from bad garlic breath! And the only reason why VLAD doesn’t sunbathe, is to preserve his “noble pallor“. He also never really understood why crosses would be scary. He felt increasingly bored and when he successfully shocked the 1000th screaming maiden in another horror movie, he packed the job in to move to the countryside and write books about werewolves.

VLAD is approximately 29 cm (11.4 inches) tall. He is made out of cosy 4 ply tweed, cotton wool and love. For your little vampire you can use every yarn you prefer - he’s getting taller or smaller but he’s always really cute!
