    Cookie Stools

    The cookie stools are Christmas gifts for my granddaughters, ages 2 and 4. My somewhat mundane turnings have been considerably enhanced by my wife's artwork. Please don't even think about calling them "time out" stools. Thanks for looking.

    Great idea! You don't mind if I steal it do you? My 3yr old son would love a chair like that!

    Gari,

    I would be pleased if you did. You can get a model at almost any grocery store.

    You might make a milk bottle stool to go with the cookie stools. Those are really neat.

    Being an entrepreneur and marketeer, I think you may have something in those little stools. I can see a competition by the cookie manufacturer to win your set of stools upon sending in x number of cookie packet wrappers. The artwork is amazing. Just think Oreos have launched a whole campaign to take the cookie into China. This type of stool would go down big time in the East. You should explore this by sending in a picture to the Brand Manager at the company. You could be in for producing a few. I think this is a hot idea. But hey maybe I am crazy. Have the kids got them yet? What has been the reaction you have had from others who have seen them?
    cheers

    Thanks to everyone for the kind words.

    Rob, The granddaughters don't get them until Christmas. Reaction has been very positive but I think it's mostly my wife's artwork that deserves the praise. It was a fun project.
