Toys for Tots

Socks don't suck even if they're studded with holes or look old and abused.

Instead of tossing them away,
turn them from blah...

...to TADA!

Cut the socks in different shapes, hem the sides
and stuff them with fiber fill.

Then create some wacky new friends...

Coozai never leaves home without a bow tie.

Geordine looks like a jelly bean.

Sparkee loves being silly.

And Lola Loulou loves to wear a tutu!

Go ahead, dream up some characters & stories with your little ones.
If only to save those socks!
