Those would be really dangerous in my home. I can see the boys now using it as a weapon of some sort. Makes me shudder to even think about!

Jennifer said...

Oh cool! It's like porcupine, coral, and a puffer fish all in one! LOL!

I love the second one and last one the most. I wonder how long it takes for her to make one of those.
