After quite a bit of faffing about in the land of bookface, asking for opinions, I was able to move forward with the bear guy that sprang up just before Christmas.
You know, I think the thing about toys is trying to make something that looks like the real shape of animal , but also looks appealing… a kind of compromise between a really truly representation of an animal and our idea of the animal.
(and of course the limitations of the person doing the actual making) I also think I think way too much.
So the Polar Brothers are born and I do really like them. Kind of real, and kind of cute and the best thing? that crazy Minky fabric makes them all touchable and rub-on-your-cheek lovely.
Please do ignore the gargantuanly headed deer who appears to have collapsed under the bears….
He just can’t stand on his own two feet.
