A Pile of People

When I was at the thrift store a couple of weeks ago... I bought what at first glance looked like a pile of pipe cleaners... This is what I found when I took them out of the bag....
A Great BIG Pile of People

There were 78 pipe cleaner people in total...


Some of my favorites:

(Sparkle guy)

(Fluffy Muscle Man)


(The Twins... I love the colors)

(The Ski Instructor)
(The odds and ends)

I have no idea what these people were made for or why they were discarded... but they are fun to think about... I am not sure what we will do with them... I have thought about taking them apart and reusing the pipe cleaners... but I haven't been able to bring myself to do it...

Wow, cute..., good works :)
Don't throw them away. My idea is...why don't you make a small puppet stage for Hope (from hard paper like people used for electronic stuff packaging), so she can play all the 'people' you had made on that stage.

What a fun thing to find in the bag! I imagine that those people were a rainy day activity for someone!
