I am sorry I cannot post pictures I wanted to give my review of Kaya's Animals as they came today. There are three a deer/fawn and I suppose bear cub too small to be a full bear and a little white bunny I believe they used the pattern from Nutmeg (Julie's Rabbit) with stick up ears although I am trying to figure out what a white rabbit would be doing in Native American times in the wild. I mean unless it's a snowshoe rabbit (rabbits that become white during the winter) a long way away from home. I cannot see how a rabbit that is white can survive too easy for a predator to see. It is for what it is pretty cute all in all. I cannot say anything bad about aside from what you can see in online or in the catalog it is up to you if you want it. I personally would have preferred an outfit or a carry thing like a trunk. Accuracy grade: C the cub and fawn are not bad. Worth the money: B you know what you are getting Cuteness factor: A

Kaya's Animals Item# F8481 $48
When Kaya is gathering firewood, she looks for these baby animals:
* A bear cub with tan ears, dark fur, and big brown eyes * A soft, brown, speckled fawn * A furry, white bunny
Okay, so $48 for three animals? But you know we (or at least I) paid $20 just for Nutmeg, so this isn't too bad a price for three AG animals.
First off is the deer. She's 11" tall and 10" from nose to tail. She's soft tan plush with fawn markings. She stands pretty well by herself. Her eyes are brown with hard plastic eyelids and surrounding eye sockets.
Next we have a cute bear cub. He's really furry, with long dark brown plush. He's not as stuffed as the deer but more squeeze-able. He also stands really well. He's 7" tall by 8 1/2" in length. His eyes are hard plastic brown.
Last is the cutest little rabbit. He's 4" tall (to the tips of his ears) and 4 1/2" long (to the tip of his tiny tail) He has the shortest, coarsest hair of the lot. His eyes are a hard plastic amber.
Here's a picture of Kaya's rabbit compared to Nutmeg. They are definitely not the same pattern.
Lastly, here's a picture to compare the sizes of the animals to Kaya herself.
I think these animals are very well made and Kaya will have a great time with them. Grade B+
