I'm happy to announce the factory prototypes are completed and I'm ready to begin manufacturing on 25,000 Flaky Friends! The characters who made the cut were Bookworm, Monsieur Carrot, Professor Foster, Sweet Pea and Black Eyed Pea. Now I have to do all the fun stuff like finding sales reps, publicists, and (last but certainly not least!) vendors! The toys should arrive in July and my days of sewing peas and carrots all day will be over! Here's the mug shot of my factory fresh prototypes. I'm really happy with how they turned out and will be able to offer them for sale for considerably less than the versions that I handmade myself.
