Ruokailija (Diner) frost elf stared into nothingness, its small face showing clear signs of confusion. “Can it be”, Ruokailija pondered, “that dinner is the first, second AND third best thing in the world?” Because no matter how hard the frost elf thought about it, it just couldn’t imagine anything nicer than dinner with friends, dinner by itself, and the notion of all the lovely dinners that it would eat some day.
Maybe – and this came as a bit of a shock to the elf – it hadn’t even tasted the best dinner of its life yet.
Ruokailija frost elf is made of wooden beads and wears a gray cap made of felt. The frost elf holds silver cutlery in its hands and wears a light scarf around its neck.

Did you notice the wood grains?
Every wooden Aarikka item is unique, because every piece of wood is unique. Products are handmade, visible in them and the volume they are made in - small volumes for a need. So the small details of life are visible. Light stripes visible in the wooden pearls are made by Kaija's husband Erkki Ruokonen's unique technique, which is still used to hand-dye all wooden products in Raisio.
