“When we first decided to create our Weighted Animal Figurine line, Jim and I were battling back and forth ideas on what animal we should make first. Should we start with an owl, a dog, or maybe an elephant? We finally came around to our decision with the help of one of the most unlikely of sources. Jim and I had had our granddaughter Brooke over for the weekend. She was busy coloring in one of those princess coloring books at the kitchen table while Jim and I were hovering around his laptop, looking at different animals that could possibly be the first figurine.
Brooke, the precocious child that she was, decided that we weren’t paying sufficient enough attention to her. So, she made her way over to us, coloring book in hand. Jim and I were still caught up in what we were doing and scarcely noticed her little hand pulling on my sleeve. She finally had enough and flopped the coloring book down in front of us.
Taken aback I asked her, “Brooke, what do you think you’re doing?”
“I’m helping,” Brooke replied matter of factually.
Jim and I examined the coloring book. It was opened to a half colored depiction of the classic fairy tale, The Princess, and The Frog.
“It’s my favorite.” she said simply, taking the book back with her to continue completing her masterpiece.
Jim leaned back in his chair and laughed. He looked at me and I knew instantly what he was thinking.
“So, we’re doing a frog?’ he asked.
“I guess so,” I replied.
And that is how Rivet the Frog was born. And with him came the rest of our Swarovski © embellished Weighted Animal Figurines that continue to bring a little sparkle and fun into homes around the world.”
