So, I 've been working on a new idea for a fully interactive 3 Little Pigs Play set. This is a completely rough version and I have a few kinks to work out in the design but it came out great so far. First I made the 3 little pigs and the Big Bad Wolf out of soft durable fleece. They actually came out better than I expected!  The three houses are interactive in that you can access each house and play with them as doll houses from the back and add furniture and accessories. The doors are hinged too. The straw and the stick house are cool because when you pop the roof off the walls collapse creating a "blown down house" after the wolf's huffing and puffing and the houses get larger as you progress in the story to fit 1-two-then all three piggies in the big brick house! The brick house does not collapse but it is two stories with a rope ladder and it opens like a book from the back  so you can play inside! It came out so well and I have gotten great reviews from the two special little boys I gifted it to. They played themselves to sleep! This has given me an idea to make more little houses for my Winston hamster mini plushies so stay tuned! I'm currently working on a tree house playset!

This is so amazing. The creativity is just mind-blowing. Love all the little details - no wonder the boys loved it! Can't wait to see what you make next. Cheesy

All we have to decide is what to craft with the time that is given to us.
