Just going to include an action shot as there are several imperfections Wink, but for my first clay project I do believe it was a success.  The tennis ball actually got a crack in it but as long as it's positioned on the bottom no one will know Smiley

I'll be curious to see how well they stand up to actual use.  The room's occupant isn't due for another two months but at least I put the creepy black/white puppy in the bottom lefthand corner Cheesy

Those are really adorable! 

And they should hold up well if you used another brand of polymer clay besides Sculpey III, and also baked and attached them thoroughly.

P.S.  You might want to think about removing them when your little one starts to crawl though.  Pieces could break off or s/he could pull whole knobs off...they'd then qualify as items small enough to be eaten or stuck in a child's windpipe that are prohibited for kids under 3. 
You could temporarily attach them to a box or lamp base or other item on top of the dresser though, or even mount them firmly in a frame or a shadow box out of reach till s/he's older.  Or perhaps use them for the numbers on a clock --either on a clay base you also make (with an added clock mechanism), or just stuck over the numbers of any wall clock, etc.

Thanks Smiley

Good point Diane, unfortunately I did use Sculpty III Sad  Being my first clay project it's the most common stuff I could find in the craft places and cheapest for something I wasn't sure would work at all.  That is a great idea about removing them and putting them somewhere else when the time comes that they might become a safety hazard..thanks Smiley
