It seems these little items are a great hit with young school girls. As one daughter is a school teacher and another daughter teaches sewing students, they are always looking for prizes to reward their students at different times. And these kind of items are hits.
First, we have this turtle. The shell can even come off of him.
He's not really very small, but is soft and cudddly to squeeze.
Sometimes turtles need to lay on their backs.
This is a little bird. I'm not sure about him yet. Maybe he'd look better on a different color.
Then there's this granny square owl. Pretty cute,eh?
He's not very small either.
And Mr. Snail
