Another stall, this time from Finland, who were selling, strange looking hats, wool rugs and these cuddly toys. An assortment of dogs, bears and reindeer. They were also advertising a scheme similar to the Cabbage Patch Kids of the 1980s, where you 'adopt' a reindeer. Only this time it's a real one, and you get a toy one as a reminder. I'm not sure why you would want to adopt a reindeer, as they are hardly an endangered species. Looking at their website, it costs £30 to do this, and the animals are living in Kent, rather than in Scandinavia.
