I am not a collector, but I do love cute little characters of cartoons and animations.
I had the Hello Kitty phase when I was very young, and Snoopy!. I still love Snoopy.
They are the characters of the children’s book written by Ann Gutman and illustrated by Georg Hallensleben . It is originally published in France and is translated in many other languages. Lisa is the white one and Gasperd is the black one. I don’t know if they are dogs or bunnies, the author doesn’t say, but it hardly matters because they are so cute.
And here are her friends.
Then, I started adding more members.
The next one is a hippo. I worked from large animals to smaller ones. I also have a bear which you will see in a group photo.
I have a little mouse. He is one of my favorite.
I have also added human figures. I made them quite small. They are smaller than the dog or the cat and wearing the same costume. In my little fantasy world, humans do not dominate animals. We live in harmony side by side.
When I was in primary school, I joined a band. I still remember the excitement when I wore the uniform for a parade. I feel very fortunate to have sweet childhood memories.
