Stereotype of the werewolf in toy

For some reason there is a myth or stereotype out there that a non-transformed werewolf in human form looks something like a lumber jack.  Plaid/flannel shirt, jeans, boots, beard.  Why?!  I imagine it’s probably because wolves are often seen in forests, and werewolves are associated with wolves, and those people that live near forests probably dress and look like lumberjacks.   I found this doll toy that feeds right into that stereotype, that’s what got me started….well, although I dont like the stereotype,  I do think it is pretty cute!
