Mew should now have some cute toys that look like these and it shouldn't take more than an hour to make them all

Mew may be wundering why the P.A. didn't glue things on... well she said and I quote. 

"Even though the glue I use is non toxic, I prefer to sew the smaller items like eyes, fangs and pom poms on by hand as there is less chance of them becoming detached due to vigorous play - I also wouldn't recommend using those plastic stick-on boggle eyes or the like as they could come off and be a choking hazard.  I also recommend that you do a toy check regularly and throw away anything that is coming apart, is fraying or has any loose components."    

Ohhh that was good advice from the P.A. - Thank mew! MOL

Now the really fun part...

In the testing lab





So Smooch did get all of the toys while I went and had a little snack... but then I came back and ruined effurything! MOL



As mew can see we were best purrleased with the new toys, we have more videos but this post is long enough! MOL
