CLAUDE THE CLOUD

Claude is a happy little squishy white cloud. He loves nothing better than floating gently along in a bright blue sky while chatting to his good friend Sandra the Sun. He’s very happy to be squished by hands big and small alike to help bring the spirit of spring to your life, whatever the outside weather!
