      Whilst questionably 'cute', it horrifies me to think that this could be a child's toy, considering the effect of real cigarettes. What would it be teaching them? Sorry, but no, totally irresponsible. :'(

        Hi K S,

        I'm very sorry that my project has offended you. These were not made as a toy for a child and I would never aim these at children either. If you have a look at the 'about' section you can see the reason he was made...

        I originally made him for my sister who had to stop smoking. I made Charlie to be her stress relief. I'm not a smoker. Never have been. Never will be. I do not advise it at all and I am very sorry that you feel that he was intended as a children's toy.

        @Pauline G:
        I'm fully aware of what YOU intended them for and a fun idea. However, the pattern is available for others that may not be as responsible and think it would make a funny toy.

        @K S:
        I designed these from scratch. I have not released a pattern for this and so the design is not available.
