Wanted: Miniature beanie babies (McDonald's sized)

Hello everyone!

My name is Herman, and I am a curious (if a bit timid) hedgehog. The big scary people that cohabitate with me are nice and all, but a hedgehog needs a buddy of his own size, too!

I hope there is someone out there who might have a few of those miniature beanie babies that McDonalds gives out with happy meals? Regular mini beanie babies (the type that can be bought at card stores, etc) are just too big for me to play with, and too heavy! (Hey, I may look ferocious when I'm eating, but I'm really just a softie at heart):

Thank you in advance!

Love,

Herman

Awww... I love hedgehogs! I have an albino one named Sprocket that shares my apartment with me!

I've got a couple small crab beanie babies that I could give Herman! What coloration is he?

Awesome! Thanks so much!

I've asked around the internet, and checked out a bunch of colour guides myself, and Jeff and I think he's a black eyed cinnicot. Herman would be extremely grateful for a crab beanie baby - right now he has a sad little pink fabric mouse with a really long tail that I previously used as a bookmark for his favorite playmate (I keep calling the mouse his girlfriend - poor Hermie, razzed by the big people).

Sprocket is an awesome name! At first I was not a huge fan of albino hedgehogs but the more I see and read about them they seem so sweet and adorable. :)

I'll PM you for further details. :)

were you going for the softness of the beanie babies? or just the size?
because i was just at ikea and there's a binful of tiny little stuffed thingies like elephants and stuff. they're not particularly soft, but they're cute and little.

I want one! are they really social animals? can you handle him a lot? I can't have another animal at all, but he is way too cute

They aren't what you would call cuddly. I'm never sure how much they recognize people as other animals or just see them as part of the scenery. Mine roams free in my apartment and they can be litter trained.
