So I had this, well it was suposed to be a party with 12 people but only 2 came (we still had fun though) and as a "party" favor for the girls who would sleep over i would give out these cute little stuffed animals that were about two inches long and one inch high, they where originaly for tiny kids but they were sooo cute! anyway since like no one came i got to keep one (an elephant which was the one i liked espcially) now i don't want to throw it out but i dont know what the hell to do with it.  Here is a link to what they kinda look like (for some reason they don't have them online, probally cause they were on sale for 49 cents each!) btw the ones i got were not sea creatures but like safari animals (rhinos, a wierd bear thing(?), a ellephant, a lionbut in wierd colors the rhinos was pink, and the bear red:

I think it would be really cute if you made a little bag or tote, and sewed those on... hey, if you got really creative, you could make it look like a zoo!
hope i helped!

hehe... I bought a mess of these for my daughter.  She loves them cause they are finger puppets!  If you have any crafting for kids, you could make a blanket with a couple attached to the sides?  Or even stitch it down to a hat or at the bottom of a sweater for those kids really into animals.  Actually come to think of it, I think I remember the care says not to immerse in water.... meh... mobile!  good luck.   Smiley

You can make them into keyrings. I can't claim originality as my apartment window keys are attached to a plush fairy keyring (previous tenant/owner's doing).. You can group keys to particular animals (like your personal set of keys, the window keys, the garage, etc), and if you can show them off on those key "boards" that have hooks: a wall menagerie! And you can label a 'spot' for each animal like a zoo on your wall.

I personally like 'coin purse' conversions too - combine both and you have your change and your keys in the same place.

Well, if you decide not to craft with them but want to put them to good use, there's always Operation Give (in which donated toys are given to Iraqi children by American soldiers).
