These are just amazing, super-cute ideas for sure!

One question - how does the green army guy walk without tripping? Does he just carry around that mat to stand on?

Really incredibly creative.

Thanks for the positive feedback :) And that is a great question, Andrea. Unfortunately the mat is just for standing--but what a great photo opp!
