Love Rats, Baby!

Move over Devil Duckies, 'cause here come the Love Rats!

Love Rats, baby!

Love Rats, that's where it's at.
Love Rats, that's where it's at.

Huggin' and a kissin', dancin' and a lovin'

Wearin' next to nothin' 'cause they're rats!

The whole class shimmies! Wee hoo!
The whole class shimmies! Wee hoo!

When everybody's movin' around and around and around and around.

Everybody's movin', everybody's groovin' baby.

Folks linin' up outside just to get down.

Funky little rats.
Funky little rats!

(You should see how adults react when we bury Love Rats under sensory table rice, leaving only the long, pink, life-like tail sticking out!)

Definitely haven't seen this before. This is why I read your blog. (The unexpected, not the love rats!)

These are too darn cute! I need some rat babies! LOL, where did you find these cute little love rats?

@Plants seeds . . . and others who want to know where to get your own Love Rats. I've updated the post with a link to Archie McPhee in the first line, which is where all things Love Rat can be found.

At first I thought that was Floam, but you seem to be describing it as something else. Plant seeds? Just by themselves? They seem to have some stickiness to them. How'd you make that? And if you don't know Floam, you should!

I too am interested in what the children and rats are playing in....looks like fun!

Love the rats!

@Kristi, Anonymous and others wanting to know about the "stuff" the rats are playing in . . . Indeed, it is Discount School Supply's version of "floam" that they call IncredibleFoam Dough. Here's the link:

The kids look like they are having fun, however, I think I'll just have to love them from afar! (I do love the song tie-in!) :)

Try adding little grains of rice coloured black with a permanent marker pen near the snack area and a long tail hanging out somewhere. From a distance they do look like droppings. The "rat in my kitchen" scenario is definitely cranked up by doing this.
