Animal Themed Military Decorations And Medals

These are awesome:

Check out the rest of them on Danielle Pedersen’s Etsy page – HERE

Although I don’t feel like I’ve done anything worthy of a “Badger of Honor” or “Purple Shark”, for some reason I want them.  Would I be guilty of stolen animal valor?

Although they are “cute”, $48.00 is too steep for me, even if they are 100% handmade in Oregon.

Thoughts?

The first one is kind of neat, the second one I’m not to excited about.
Extraordinary Mallard is awesome.

“Thoughts?”

Yes. People want far too much money for crap that will live it’s entire life in the junk drawer.

I’d pay 5 bucks, but 50 is too much for felt and figurines.

Sad to say, but she’s priced herself out of her target market. There’s several of these I could see buying as gifts to friends, but no way am I paying $48.
She should also spruce up the ribbons themselves some- a vertical strip of contrasting color would make them look less plain and more worth buying.

There’s a target market for this?

Yeah: people who impulse-buy cute things, teen girls, adults with a sense of irony, military practical jokers…
You were expecting maybe a demographic horde of animal-decoration-ribbon seekers, sweren’t you?

I would consider that a “target market,” as opposed to the rare and very random people who would purchase goofy junk like this!

I’d pay $10, maybe $15 – but $50 is too much for me.

Yeah you could order the animals off of Amazon and make your own for less, that aside they should make a “good Condor medal”.

How about an Armadillo Achievement Medal?
