But then I had a good idea!!! I would protect their faces with the big face protectors that I'd bought for my Blythes! And I had just the right amount of them that everyone has one!
So although the girls aren't overly impressed with their new face wear, Alex is delighted and thinks he's going into space instead of to the coast!!! He hasn't stopped singing "Ground Control to Major Tom...." since I put his on him!
If anyone is interested in information on these face protectors, just leave me a note and I can give you the link etc.
