Four Footed Friends



Children's souvenirs from Scandinavia fall in two categories: trolls and moose.  I'm not fond of trolls, so moose it is.


These fuzzy guys are pens, but you can find just about anything decorated with moose.

I did a little reading to sort out the various four footed species: Moose are the same species known as elk in Europe.  But elk in North America are a different type of animal.  Thanks for the help, Wikipedia.

After checking the web, it's still tough to tell the difference. But I think moose has webbed antlers.

We like a kids' book called The Useful Moose - look for it next time you go to the library, if the kids want more moose!
