Rusty Reindeer

Santa has enlisted the help of a new reindeer this Christmas.

He’s a reindeer called Rusty.


Rusty is a very special little reindeer. For although he is small he is kind and brave.

He is never afraid to help out his fellow reindeer and looks after all the younger reindeer helping them to fit in.


He was top of his class in reindeer training class and is an excellent flier and he is ever so excited about making it to Santa’s squad of flying reindeer. He simply can’t wait for Christmas Eve to come.


He may seem small but he’s very strong which makes him perfect for helping to pull the sleigh on Christmas Eve.

I think Rusty will be a great helper for Santa don’t you ?


Rusty is a little bit nervous about his first Christmas Eve as well though. For so long he has heard about all Santa’s reindeer and the wonderful job they do pulling the sleigh with Santa, toys and gifts for all the boys and girls throughout the world. It’s a lot to live up to and he hopes he can do the job, but I know that with a hug and a cuddle he will do a great job.


On Christmas Eve when you are all snuggled down in bed and the house is all hushed with the quiet of night.ย  When you hear that tinkle of bells overhead like magic and if you dare to peek out through the window you may see a red shiny light shooting across the sky.

You will know that Rusty is pulling that sleigh !


Rusty stands at 4.5 inches tall and is made from acrylic yarn.

He’s got 100% polyester toy stuffing and has two safety eyes and a little bell round his neck.

He was taken from the pattern Rudy the red nosed reindeer.

    Too cute Ruth! When I was a little girl, my dad and uncle would go up on the roof and jingle some big bells after we were tucked in on Christmas Eve. We were petrified to get up in case Santa saw us and turned around to leave! They would stomp around real loud and were sure that their was reindeer up there. ๐Ÿ™‚

    That’s adorable ๐Ÿ™‚ Sometimes, I think crocheters get the better end of the deal with toys…it seems like there’s so much more to do with crochet as far as toys. Don’t get me wrong, I love knitted toys, too…
