Handy Mascot gifts!

In order to thank the very talented DIY video creators online, i made extra Handy Mascot kits and sent them out as gifts. The very first people i sent them to was the people behind Tested, and they made this mailbag video about it! I am really happy that they liked it, and hope the others will like their Handy Mascot kit just as much :)

If you don’t already know, the Handy Mascot isn’t just cute, it also work as portable hooks since the hand can grip strings and edges, and then the feet can be used as hooks for your coat, tool or whatever. Check out this short video and see for yourself!
