Thumb Drop's story started sometime last month (October 2011) when we got together and discuss the idea of having a special project for Christmas again this year. As two heads are better than one, we came up with the idea of making a home for Gumdrops but we wanted it to be different from all the other toon homes on the Web so we chose to use everyday items to make the various pieces of furniture, fences, etc. Then we decided that if Gumdrop was to have furniture made out of pill boxes, ice lolly sticks (popsicle), cell phone, small tin jewel box, etc., then he might as well be Tom Thumb but he's a Drop, not a Tom, so we named him Thumb Drop. That's why we're presenting to you our "Thumb Drop's Christmas".

Once we started the project, we found that it would be a shame to work that hard for a project that could be used only in the Winter, more specifically, during the Holidays. That is why you will find a Summer version of EVERYTHING that is included in this project... Want to know what EVERYTHING is made of???
