Fridge Magnets

Nov 26, 2023

This is, combining separate and diverse pieces together to form a new thing. With this idea in mind, I designed these magnets to be separate and reusable parts of animals:

Kids had some laughts playing with them 🙂. If they keep playing for a couple days more I'll think of making more pieces.
