    Basic Pinky

    As it is to be expected, Princess Pinky, once again tops the popularity charts! (Sez Pinky: duh!) So, since the original Pinky group ran out in um...about 5 seconds, and Extra Special Pinky is close to running out, I thought I'd add another reward group for basic Princess Pinky. (no Mr. Bun included. You can go to Extra Special Pinky for that!) Regular Pinky still has her signature tutu and tiara and her magical wand, so watch out! She could still get into trouble.

    Hand felted with wool sourced from a local shop (of mostly local sheep)

    Wu & his Magical Bunny Slippers OR Ping

    The Wizard of Wu was one of my favorite stories in The Book of Wu! As you recall, Mr. Wu got swept up in a tornado with his best friend, Binky the Soccer ball. He met Bee the Bear who gave him the magic bunny slippers, which she took from the wicked witch that Wu dropped his house on (sorrreeee!)Mr. Wu comes with the magical Bunny Slippers.

    Because that's the sort of Bear that the Wu self is, he offered to share this reward with Ping, since Ping's reward was all gone. You'll get a chance to tell me during the survey whether you want Wu (and his slippers) or Ping as your support panda. (You can tell me when you pledge at this level too!.

    Two pandas, no waiting!

    Several people have asked for two pandas instead of one. While you can add another panda to your existing pledge by contacting me, here is an easy alternative! These hand felted pandas average around 3" tall, have soft, squishy cores (perfect for an emotional support panda while you are in a meeting or on the subway)and are needle felted with some wool from Whidbey Island sheep. All their panda parts are attached by needle felting, so don't let Mr. Kitty get them!

    The Wu Self

    Mr. Wu is known for wearing a piece of tape on his ear. Do you know why he does that? Read on to find out! Like all the other felty emotional support pandas here, Mr. Wu is needle felted by me from (mostly) Whidbey Island wool from Whidbey Island sheep. Each of these little bears is unique, and small enough to carry with you in a pocket. They are all made with a soft, squishy core, so if you are having an unpleasant meeting at work, you can reach in and give him a little squeeze! You might even smile, which will annoy that most condescending co-worker.
    * Mr. Wu wears a piece of tape on his ear, in honor of his dad, Gao Gao, who has one small ear from an old injury.

    Bee~ The Bear

    Bee ~ the Bear is a particular friend of Mr. Wu! Part bee, part panda, Bee (the Bear) had a magical wand before Pinky did (See: The Wizard of Wu and it's a Wunderful Life.)Hand felted with (mostly) Whidbey Island Wool and found wing and antennae parts, Bee has a soft squishy core, like all of these pandas, and maybe she'll grant a wish or two for you. A limited reward (because stripes are hard!)

    Baby Bubba or Bee the Bear

    While Bubba in his now signature overalls and stripy shirt are a little beyond my capabilities as a seamstress, tiny Baby Bubba in his Moar Foo bib is just my speed! This needle felted happy baby panda is wearing his Moar Foo bib, and is just the panda to accompany you on workdays or when you need to go to the cuppycake bakery. High chair not included!

    Since Bee the Bear's category all got taken, Baby Bubba graciously allowed lovers of Bee (the Bear)to take this opportunity to have their Bee. (Pinky would NEVER be this understanding!) You'll get an opportunity to tell me which panda you want during the survey!

    PING!!!!!!

    Bubba's best friend is Ping Ping, an exchange student from China, who came to live with the DC pandas as a companion for Bubba. I don't know what he's learning, because all he ever says is "ping" but he says it so expressively that at least Bubba understands him perfectly. Ping wears his doggy costume, left over from the Year of the Dog panda kindergarten review that year. I think the zipper got stuck, because he's still wearing it 2 years later. All the spots on his costume are hand felted, just so ya know!
