“I love the winning design, although all of them are very good — this has the cuteness factor that seems to be important to the target market of this business. The cute little fluffy chick works perfectly in tandem with the emotions she has created — and really, as soon as I saw it, I wanted a virtual chicken of my own! Wonderful job.”

-Kayti Welsh (Kayti*Designs)
