October Toy Society Drop

Yes, yes, yes--I am late with this post. But here is my October Toy Society Drop. It is the Silly Snake found in the sweet book Sew Darn Cute by Jenny Ryan. And I have to tell you this snake was a mongo hit around our house--I mean, Beeper declared the snake his own when he saw it, like they had always belonged to one another or something. So, yes, now there is a second snake in progress for Beeper. And aside from the fact that this snake plushie is big with the kindergarten reptile-loving set, it is also just BIG. I mean, like 4 feet long. With this sort of size, I am thinking it must be at least part anaconda. Which explains why I have this irrational fear of Beeper sleeping with the snake, and keep imagining the snake entwined around his sleeping body. But back to the Toy Society. We dropped this snake on Halloween eve, just outside the Seward Co-op in Minneapolis, on Franklin Avenue. And this is drop number 10 in my year long commitment--I know, can you believe it? You can see all my Toy Society drops from this past year right here, if you really want to. And also, don't know about the Toy Society and its acts of random plushie giving kindness?--learn more about it here--but really, the best way to learn about it is just to do a drop for yourself. You should. Think about it at least.

Cool snake! Was it made from re-purposed sweaters? Great job on the 10 Toy Society drops also. I have done 3 so far and just love it.

Hey Rose. I forgot to mention that it was made with felted, upcycled wool sweaters.

I love that snake! What a cool thing you are doing. You really are just cool, but I've told you that before. I just hope you are remembering it...xoxo.

Love that snake; such a happy one! I'm checking into that book today. I've also done six or seven toy drops (and am still waiting for the finders to check in!!). Friends think I'm crazy, but I'm just crazy smart (!) and enjoy the process.
