Squinkies - Do you think they could be displayed nicely?

Okay, here's the deal. I had to get a gift for my dad's girlfriend this year and had no clue what to get her that wasn't "overdoing" it. In my toy travels I found squinkies with characters from her favorite Disney movie and thought they could be displayed nicely somehow. BUT in all honesty I don't know too much about squinkies. Is this a dumb thought?

PS I guess she collects dolls or something too, but my dad says she basically has tons of stuff relating to this movie, and I thought the squinkies would be the one thing odd enough that she might not have.

Tell me if this idea sucks or not. Be honest. I want to know.

  • I have been putting squinkies in my son's nativity box. You could display them on one of those shadow box frames but honoestly I think just giving them to her in a little stocking would be cute. Its kind of fun to open them and see whats inside. The stocking just sort of says this is a small gift but I thought of you. If you want to go nutty you could put them in a bubble gum dispenser.
