Presley Cash the Monster
I specially designed this monster to celebrate the birth of our new baby, Presley Cash Danger.
When I was pregnant, Mr Danger and I thought it would be fun to have a monster specially made for our little boy. I got hard to work designing a monster that I would be proud to name after our baby, and this is what I came up with.
With babies on the brain I also designed Presley the monster to be baby friendly: he’s got knitted teeth as opposed to my normal felt teeth, embroidered eyes that can’t be chewed off, and his one long arm makes him perfect for little hands to grab and carry around (and perfect for adults to hang anywhere).
I hope you enjoy your new Presley the monster addition to your family as much as we are enjoying ours!
