quicko: cuddlepot and snugglepie

You're probably better off just referring to wikipedia here, but I thought I should at least mention these classic characters of Australian childhood -- they are gumnut babies who live and find adventure (fleeing, for instance, the evil banksia) in the Australian bush. They were created by author May Gibbs, who, incidentally, lived in Neutral Bay -- practically next door to your favorite blogger!
