  1. Now that looks like fun ! Have to do some research and find out where to buy. My grandkids will love them but us adults will live them more. Lol

  2. Those look like fun, and maybe a good stress reliever. I have to look into getting some. I usually call my nephew’s wife my niece-in-law.

  3. I bought these last year for our Christmas party. Have a bunch at work too. They are so fun! According to QVC they are 100% polyester and machine washable.
