Novelty

These little creatures amazed us when we discovered them: they're quirky sculptures made of natural latex rubber. The "eyes" are actual seeds (melon, tomato, and pumpkin seeds), and their "skin" is soft and pliable. You can squeeze their bodies and they'll squeak. If and when you get tired of looking at your Plant-Me Pet on your desk or shelf, you can literally bury the sculpture in a pot of soil (head-first, so as to cover the seeds), water it and place it in the sun, and -- voilá! -- the rubber will decompose and a plant will sprout.
