Hehe! I loved Calvin and Hobbes too. I think you got Hobbes exactly right, he looks just like stuffed Hobbes in the comics. Calvin's face is adorable.

I love them. Smiley

I can just picture Calvin carrying around his own versions of these dolls.  They remind me of the actual Hobbes doll in the strip.  Well done!  Smiley
