Yeah, I've been testing a few ways to do that without taking away from the design. The feedback I've gotten dI far, though, is that the list isn't necessary after the first time - the kids seem to prefer seeking randomly

What about a snap-on tag that could be

I love this idea but I wouldn't pay $20 I don't think. I would agree with PP to make the squeaker optional as well! I love this item though!! I want to do a trade for one!

LOVE IT! What a great idea!!! I agree that the squeaker should be optional. That is something that I would hate in the long run. Plus, it would attract dogs.

It would make a really nice dr office/car/quiet time toy. It would also be good for the car because its not hard enough to do damage as a projectile, which would be a MAJOR plus for me. I don't know if I would spend $20 though and the squeaker would have to be optional/removable

Re: Would you be interested in these?

My mom has made these as gifts - if you were selling I'd be worried about safety hazards & liability with the little beads. I know the ones I've seen/used are machine washable (plus!) but say they're not approved for kid toy used (minus!). So potentially some type of double bag feature to insure no leakage of beads, and embroider the 'list' on th eback?

To clarify, you purchased something similar from someone else. I haven't made any DS sales yet.

Yes, sorry. We purchased some, on DS, from a WAHM. They entertained my kids, and my friends sons.. For maybe 5minutes? Which was a bummer.

Do you mind if I ask what specifically you would have done to improve the concept? Were there not enough charms? Too easy/hard to find? Too big/small? Not visually appealing? Would a list of possible game variations with the product help?

I think they were sorta flimsy. And in an attempt to make them small, they were too small. My kids would have liked bigger ones, I think. The items were 'beads' so not too small. I think the card was words. And my kids couldn't read.. So that sucked.

Hope that helps. Hers were not nearly as well made as yours. Just same concept.
