    These dice don't roll very easily. They were made to hang from the rear view mirror of my Van. But times must have changed since I did that sort of thing with my 1940 Ford 2 Door Sedan hot rod, at age 16 because I found them annoying in the present traffic situations, of modern everyday driving. So they now reside hanging from the knob of a cabinet in my sewing room. A constant reminder of a life that has changed in so many ways.
    Quilted and stuffed with warm and natural Cotton Batting. The truck was green, hence the choice of green color "dots", on the dice.

    Very nice. Perhaps if you made a pair that were smaller they would work and you could have a "blast from the past" (smile). Thank you for sharing.

    They actually are only 4" per side. I think that the modern car passenger compartment, or in this case, Van passenger compartment is restricted in it's vision views, when compared to the large passenger cars of yesteryear.
