Real pets can be a bit problematic if you have kids. Not only can it be challenging to have to clean up after more than one of them at a time, but it also takes a while for kids to learn how to handle themselves around animals. Sheep offer a way for kids to have a cuddly animal around without mess and without risking injury to either child or animal. Stocked at Thorsten Van Elten, these aren't live sheep, but wooden ones covered in real, soft sheepskin. They range in size from 45cm-80cm high, with prices from $340-$775 (£175 to £395).
