‘Viech’ the Cutie with Claws


About the Viech

Now, the Viech is very cuddly and cute, but be aware! Viecher (pl) are not aware of their own strength, have no idea of the sharpness of their claws, are clumsy, and do horrendously stupid things. Realizing the havoc they have created, Viecher look up at you with their innocent black eyes before explaining, “But I just…’

They are real adventurers as well, always keen to climb a tree, jump into a river, or hide behind a rock. Thinking and planning does not come natural to them, so take a first aid kit with you at all times.

Schlaf, the Viech and the Bear are friends… but it is not easy to be friends… at least not all the time. The Viech sometimes likes to have Schlaf to join him on his adventures. But she never finds the right shoes, books and maps, or falls asleep in the middle of the preparations while the Viech is already on his way to the unknown.

Schlaf, the Viech and the Bear were featured in Stuffed Magazine Winter 2011!
