He’s now part of a 25-character family living and smiling on clothes and accessories designed for children up to 6 years old. Erik, Albin the Monkey, Anton the Anteater and Maja the Cat are just some of the animal friends that come from the big wild world, where designer Hans-Jörgen Hansson finds his inspiration.
