Waddy the Frog

Yes, that’s a giant frog holding a mug of tea. Meet Waddy the Frog, a larger-than-life, tea-loving metal amphibian who’s been seen hanging out at Bigelow Tea’s beautiful Charleston Tea Garden! The name “Waddy” comes from his location, on Wadmalaw Island in South Carolina. He was custom made for the garden by Charles “Frog” Smith, a sculptor from nearby Johns Island.

Since February 2013, Waddy has been seated at one of the front porch benches with a Charleston Tea Garden mug firmly set in his right hand. As “frog in residence,” Waddy will be busy greeting visitors all year-round, so he’ll use his down time to enjoy a cup of Charleston Tea Garden Tea. He also understands that his position will involve many selfies with visitors like this youngster (below) who has been dubbed “adorable.”
