Rice Buddies are an original creation by artist Lindsey Wollan. Each Rice Buddy is handmade, so they may vary slightly from one piece to the next. The face is created using acrylic paint and the body is made of white, anti-pill fleece. Currently, there are two sizes (5" and 11") available for $5.00 and $10.00, respectively. And you can choose from a number of different face designs.
