  1. Love all of these!! Can you tell me what those little figures holding hands are? They look like they'd make a great addition to our light table play...And what is the blue stuff in the first pictures? It looks like silly putty made from clear glue? Is there any chance of it staining the plastic?

    1. Hi Elizabeth, here is a link to the little men holding hands

      The blue stuff is silly putty, no it does not stain. My instructions for it are here.


  2. Where did you buy the translucent animals and the widgets?

    1. here are the wedgits
      most other items can be found in my store

      The animals were from wind chimes that I disassembled/
