Eleven-year old Luca is a Neymar jr fan, along with millions of other soccer fans, but he’s the only one with this softie!   Even Neymar jr doesn’t have one.

You might have noticed the softie ball is different from the one in his drawing.  We didn’t want to risk non-licensed product infringements, so we went with the generic soccer ball.  Luca was okay with that.

The softie’s knees bend.   Of course they do!   Necessary detail for being able to run and kick the ball.   Neymar jr would agree.

If you did not make it on my 2014 wait list, I hope you find another softie maker to make your child’s softie. Please visit the Softiemaker Showcase to find another craft artist who works with children’s drawings. These talented craftspeople, like me, personally custom make softies for a living, with the love and attention that every softie project deserves.
