I've always loved critters of all kinds. Even as a kid I had baby snails I kept in a shoe box that I'd decorated with cardboard steps, windows ect... A few years ago my husband even brought me a real snail from Rota, Spain. (he thought he was just bringing me a shell!) Now I have a Hawaiian tree snail! Remember that contest back in January at the HerbalRoots site?...I won him!! Now he shares company on my windowsill with my little fairy, my mice and a menagerie of other cool little animal figures. This little guy was made by MamaRoots. If you're looking for quality toys in light of all the recalls lately, check them out.
