Cork Trolls
Ages all-ages

Ancient Norwegians believed that trolls with magical powers lurked among the country's fjords and forests. Our simple cork troll also proved magical at the Norway Kidcot Fun Stop, where kids from around the world made it a runaway favorite. "Kids can relate to trolls," explains manager Scott Pitts, "since most have heard or read the fable 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff.'"

  • Glue
  • Fun fur for hair
