Here are some of the concept for the ideas previously mentioned.
which is from Alice in Wonderland is the mix between a turtle and cow. A play on how mock turtle soup is actually made with beef cheek, tails and leg meet. As cute as the idea is, I don't think he would be easily understood without explanation. My fav is the one closest to the recycle symbol.
is a Chinese creature with the head of a dragon and the body of a turtle. I like the idea of putting a new spin on this guy. Dragons are quite popular, but I fear as is so far he is too close to another design here -> http://www.patchtogether.com/designs/Fradly-the-Friendly-Chimera-1375.html
. If I'm to continue this one...I will need major tweaking.

as mentioned by Sam. I like how he looks in the image but again he is too close to another design more recently submitted here ->http://www.patchtogether.com/designs/chi-tigers-4699.html
. Again if it is to go any further, it will need major tweaking.
These designs are in the beginner stages and will require work, any feed back is appreciated...I'm still open to suggestions for lesser known mythical creatures for toys...These guys are to get the ball rolling.
