Silky, Simone & Sidney designed by Barbara Prime
Seals are adorable creatures, and very different from the toys Barbara usually designs. She enjoyed the challenge of figuring out the flippers and the shape of the body and face. A soft, slightly shiny yarn gives a sense of smooth, wet skin and fur. Silky the Seal and Sidney the Merboy are suitable for ages 3 and up. Simone the Mermaid is suitable for ages 8 and up.
