I LOVE them. :manyheart I'm not at all surprised that your daughter's friends go crazy over such adorable little ones.

They look GREAT grouped together, but cute individually, too.

Thanks for sharing!

They are so cute!!!!! It's amazing what we come up with for our kids. My son was always asking me to make strange things when he was younger. A bloodshot eyeball hackey sack was the grossest one. I compromised and made a simple eyeball. LOL
