    ohhhh cute. I love them. How well do they hold up to elements being outside and all? I want to make a vegetable garden. Wonder if if I made motion sensor sounds to go with them if they'd scare away some critters stealing my veggies. :P

    If they are made of clay, are terrifying and DANGEROUS.

    Always one must think of children, they are ideal for get problems, hurts, etc.

    Great looking. They appear to be large - were they fired in an oven or made weather-resistant in some other way? Painted?
