First introduced in the play written by J.M. Barrie in 1904, the lost boys were part of the band of orphans that lived in Neverland with Peter Pan as their captain. Together, they go on adventures, partake in mischief and battle with pirates led by Captain Hook. The primary theme of this play is the conflict between the innocence of childhood and the responsibility of adulthood. Peter Pan represents eternal youth and adventure. The Cottage Shop offers the De Carlini Peter Pan Ornament. This item is dressed in a green leaf outfit and has a holstered dagger.
Captain Hook is Peter Pan’s archenemy. After Peter Pan cuts off the Captain’s hand, a crocodile eats it. The same crocodile continues to pursue him and Captain Hook is terrified of it. Hook represents the adult world and the oppressive paternal forces of society. The Cottage Shop offers the De Carlini Captain Hook Ornament. This item is painted in red and has a hook for a hand.
Peter Pan frequently visited the Darlings’ house to listen to bedtime stories. One night, he loses his shadow. When he returns to retrieve it, Wendy catches him. She helps him reattach his shadow and Peter invites her back to Neverland. Wendy brings her brothers and she becomes a mother figure to the lost boys. The Cottage Shop offers the De Carlini John Darling Ornament. This item is dressing in a nightgown and top hat.
