Quite a few are already heading for Christmas stockings in various parts of the world which makes me very happy. In case you'd like a little extra proof of their general sturdiness, I offer up the following.
In my experience, little girls like to tip them upside down and pretend their legs are hair, while boys mostly like to throw them. At things, off things, and with as much force as their sticky mitts can muster. Older owners so far have been slightly more restrained, at least in my company. What they do when I'm not there is anyone's guess.
Along with everything else in the shop, you can order soctopuses for Christmas up until the end of this coming Sunday (18th December) if you're in the UK. Last Christmas posting dates for international mail have now passed, but there are still a handful of downloadables you can order, shipping-free to anywhere in the world.
