.I think the charcoal is very easy to break and that gave me a hard time. I did not like how I smudged my teddy bear.
written by Erin4855
I chose this toy because it had the most details. I also chose it because it looked like a Disney character.
written by Joziah23
I do not like using charcoal because it was too messy. I picked us out that's because it had good shadows and highlights.
