These are the adventures of Flat Bobby. Flat Bobby is a close cousin of Flat Stanley. Flat Bobby has been sent out to several people all around the world. He will be back home safely with me by February 2nd and will be on display for my school's Open House in the Spring.

If you would like to invite Flat Bobby into your home, please read the Bobby's letter and let me know. This is my school project.

If you would like to participate by downloading a Flat Bobby clone and taking him on a jouney, please feel free to do so. I got the offical rule that Flat Bobby is allowed to travel through the internet.

Thank you!



Flat Bobby's visa has been extended. He is still free to travel the world!! We are currently seeking hosts in Africa and South America. If you are willing to host Flat Bobby, please let us know.

Thank you!

FLAT BOBBY'S SHOES, originally uploaded by ESOX LUCIUS.

Flat Bobby's original Dutch wooden shoes are in the making. But making wooden shoes is a complex craft. First they have to be carved out of wood as shown by Flat Bobby right here. They need to rest after carving, because the wood can be 'working' still and sometimes these wooden shoes split for no reason. So a rest is in order. Then they have to be painted. Normally they will be painted in traditional patterns. Finally they get a glossy finish for protection against the weather. And then we have to find Flat Bobby a minipair that would fit him! That is no small thing. The wooden shoes are bought and payed for, but as you can see with your own eyes, there is still a lot of work to be done before Bobby will be walking in them...
