The kidlet is way addicted to them. And they are kinda cute in a wobbly necked sort of way. See?
She has all these games and scenarios that surround these guys. Some of them are "streeters" (they don't have houses- they live on the street) and some have mates. There is a daily vote as to who is the reigning King and Queen (and, interestingly enough, sometimes the Queen has absolute power, and sometimes not). The pic shows a parade of mate choosing (matching by colour and species). And they all have to play in the playground. And go to the doctor. And get fed. I kinda like the mice and the hamsters, although the little lizards and crabs are kinda cute. She wants a butterfly and a skunk-but I haven't been able to find them around here. Anyone have a good source?
