They're not realy little, either -- when you stretch out their bendable legs, they measure a full 14" tall. When the legs are folded up, the bears will fit inside an envelope which measures 8.5 x 5.5".
And they are actually cards -- they each have an attached card base so that you can send your own personal message. And once they deliver the message, they will continue to look soooooooo cute sitting on a shelf, their little legs dangling as if they are dreaming the day away!
The Bendy Bears are now available as a Card Kit ($14.95) which includes everything you need to create both the girl and the boy bear ... or if you wish, you may order just the tutorial ($5.00) which includes a full 15 pages of instructions and dozens of photos to help you create your own Bendy Bears.

Obviously these cards would be perfect for children's birthdays, get well, "I Love You" cards, or any special occasion. But I think these two would bring a smile to any face, regardless of age. My great aunt who just passed away a couple of weeks ago at the age of 95, collected teddy bears and I can just imagine her reaction had she opened up an envelope and these cuties came tumbling out -- she would have been delighted! I think she had something to do with the inspiration for this cute couple. The bears can be positioned in severals ways and will sit on a shelf.
