The Notorious Smiley Face Trollbead

I didn't think it existed. I actually thought it was a mythical creature:) But the other day a customer came into our store with 3!!!!

If you don't know the story here is the synopsis directly from Trollbeads:
This January we asked our retailers all over the world to distribute around their neighbourhood 5-10 smiley beads and a wish for, whoever found it, to bring a smile into their own or somebody else’s lives. Finders were asked to go to this website and tell us how they found or were given the bead. More than 3,000 people from 32 different countries told us their personal smiley story.
You can checkout the official site here:

Swagger didn't get any Smiley Face Trollbeads to distribute (which gives me an Un-smiley Face :)) but we did get to finally see one (3) in person! Here they are:

Just in case you guys were wondering, I REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted the orange one with the blue smiley face with the ears. Kinda looked like Shrek to me:) So cute! And the idea was to pay it forward.............. :)
