They're quirky sculptures made of natural latex rubber. The "eyes" are actual seeds (melon, tomato, and pumpkin seeds), and their "skin" is soft and pliable. You can squeeze their bodies and they'll squeak. If and when you get tired of looking at your Plant-Me Pet on your desk or shelf, you can literally bury the sculpture in a pot of soil (head-first, so as to cover the seeds), water it and place it in the sun, and -- voilá! -- the rubber will decompose and a plant will sprout. Plant-Me Pets are the perfect gift for that hard-to-buy-for person on your list. They come packaged in an appropriately quirky container with planting instructions in convenient "graphic novel" form. Available in three varieties: Melon (specifically, Cantaloupe), Tomato, and Pumpkin.
