you would think i could find these everywhere. in Canada i walk into a dollar store and i'm overwhelmed by options. even grocery stores carry them on the ends of aisles; not the case in New Zealand.
I found some at a $2 store but they were either to froofroo to imagine (think gossmer fairy) or just plain ugly (think frog wearing a sporting outfit).
what i did find was the following
12 magnets $1.50
5 small wooden cows $2
with the judicious use of some super glue i give you fridge magnets on the cheap. Blaise has requested i find wooden sheep next to use up the other magnets.
