MY daughter just turned 5 and requested an Angelina Ballerina party.  Boy did we have fun!  All of her presents were along that theme, including these little cuties:

It's Angelina and Alice! (At the edge of the photo is the twirling ribbon I made, just like Angelina's from the show opening.)

I found the mice at IKEA a few months ago, and immediately knew what I wanted to do with them.  Alice was "crawling", so i sort of pulled her head forward with some strategically tacked embroidery floss.  Some tutus and ribbon bows later, and presto!  Ballerina mice. 

I don't care, I'm still free; you can't take the sky from me.

OHHHH! I so hope you had these out for decorations instead of wrapping them!  They are adorable!  I love little things like this, that are really very simple, but yet are "spot on" for being a character.  Plus, I love me some rodents! I have 2 chihuahuas and 2 guinea pigs, and they would all look cute in tutus...although Charlie might object....   Smiley
