BUDDIES sets invoke a sense of accomplishment in youngsters who have not yet developed the skills to create animal features. A plastic animal head and paws (or claws, or hoofs) are included in each set. All the child has to do is add the ball of dough between the head and feet and behold, they have created their very own animal. Six comical creatures to choose from. As the child becomes more accomplished, feathers, spots, fur can be added as details.
