The gloves - courtesy of my dad who went to Super Q Mart get some for me -weren't as white as the ones in the Cotton Time. I think it's unbleached cotton.
I had to reposition the bunny several times to get it to sit. Mad, who doesn't know Japanese either, looked at the directions and said that it may need plastic pellets for weight. I think she may be right. I'd have to make some more to test it out.
