As we wait expectantly for the Fourth of July, we are given a taste of the fun to come with Felipe Barbosa's adorable stuffed animals made of firecrackers.
The little guys, ranging in species from a panda to to the ambiguous but utterly adorable "doll," are reminiscent of the long lost Chia pet. (If, of course, Chia pets were made of firecrackers.) Brazil-based Barbosa manages to use his material so unexpectedly we almost forget these furry creatures are a fire hazard. We desperately want one of the rainbow creatures for to call our own, although we can only imagine they wouldn't make the best cuddle buddies.
