Whenever I just go to move mine, they fall apart.... SOOOOOOOOO I don't think you can take them home...

Now, buy them in the gift shop... YUP, we've done that a couple of times!!!

I took home a monkey once, but when I got home all I had was a towel??
No, seriously, I've never tried to take one home, even though they are so cute, but you can make them yourself if you're so inclined. I just see them as a good excuse to take another cruise. (HMMM, I'm sure missing that sting ray towel I had on my bed last April,,,let's book another cruise and see if we get another one.)

We stock piled them in our closet one cruise. We had a little zoo in there and then took a picture of them all. But they do fall apart easy. We had some decrepped animals by the time it was all over .

I bought the towel animal book and I have bought a stuffed animal based on the elephant towel animal from the gift shop.

We (my brother and I) would scoot the towel animals left on the bed to the corner nightstand and then got a little silly after dinner the last night when the bottles bought in port were delivered for packing-up. I just realized that I don't have the photos online but here's the comic I did about it:

The ASPTCA is out to get us!



When we took the monkey down so he could "hold" the bottle he ended up looking more like Yoda but theh frog had the best "lips", by far, for positioning the bottle.

I believe the towel animals are made with the used towels from your bathroom that you left on the floor to be replaced.

Never taken the towel animals home. We did have a room stewardess who was totally awesome and took the time to make an entire collection for our kids which she assembled on the empty bunk so that it looked like an entire exotic zoo. By the end of the cruise we had almost every animal in the book. It was to Carnival's advantage we doubled the tips of the room stewardess, bought the book, the elephant and the dog. Our youngest daughter routinely empties my linen closets so that she can amaze her friends with her creations.

We were saving our animals for one big picture, but just before the last animal our room steward took all the animals and left us with the last one... but we did get individual pics.
I think we had a sting ray on our last cruise... it would be in our pics

I would be amazed at anyone taking one home. We can very seldom get one from the bed to the table, without the head falling off.

Robe animals, Kuki That;s funny!!

NO WAY they are clean and crisp or they would not hold the folds.
