MOOs are so fun to make! If you haven't tried them out yet, here's your chance.

Swap Info: This swap was inspired by some MOOs I saw in the gallery by jfaskdown. You'll make a family of four different people. Get your scissors, glue, old magazines and photos out and start creating your own unique little family. I would love it if you'd add a name for each of your people to the front of your MOO also. This is going to be fun!

Swap Rules:
~ This is a 4 for 4 swap. You will make 4 and get 4 back. One of each family member.
~ All MOOs are to be 1"x2 3/4"
~ No bulky embellishments.
~ Make sure your MOO is sturdy, not flimsy or floppy.
~ On the back include your real name, user name, location and date.

Mailing Info:
~ Put your MOOs in a protective sleeve or something similar for protection. For MOOs you can use a penny sleeve and put two in w/ staples down the middle to make two pockets.
~ PM me for my address when you're ready to mail.
~ US: Include a stamped, self addressed envelope w/ your user name on the back.
~ International: Include a US intntl stamp (if you have one) or a US dollar and an address label. I'll
supply your envelope.
~ Be sure to allow enough time when mailing for your MOOs to arrive to me on time.

Other Info:
~ Subscribe to the thread so you can keep track of this swap.
~ Post to the thread when you have mailed your cards.
~ I will leave I-traders when your MOOs arrive and would appreciate the respect of the same in return.
~ Post to the thread and/or leave rep points when you receive your returns so that folks can know who
got their cards.
~ Don't forget to leave me (host) an I-trader when you get your MOOs back.
~ No communication and no cards will get you a neutral I-trader.
~ Share pics if you can. Everyone enjoys seeing what others are creating.
~ A host card is neither expected nor required, but is appreciated.

Happy creating and I can't wait to see what everyone makes!

What fun! And the due date is my brother's birthday, so it feels serendipitous that I should join in!

01-20-2023, 06:14 PM
Yay! The first player! Welcome fundygirl!

01-20-2023, 06:30 PM
sign me up! Sounds like a fun idea. I just recent came across the picture of all the rainbow MOOs that was posted as they were being swapped. Would love to see all the family members lined up for this one!

01-20-2023, 06:41 PM
And just like that, another player! Welcome Haagmm!

I'll try and remember to take a pic of all of them.

01-22-2023, 01:38 PM
Seriously lurking...this swap is on my radar!
Just have to make sure I have some moo-sized images first.

01-22-2023, 03:15 PM
Lurking with intent

Welcome dnewton972!

01-25-2023, 07:01 PM
Sign me up please! :)


I hope these are all ok?

01-25-2023, 09:45 PM
Thanks for the invitation. Your swap is definitely on my radar. I made a MOO house once, but I haven’t made any proper MOOS yet. I’ve been wanting to give them a try. I’m just lurking for now. But I was wondering, must the MOO family be made of humans? Or could the it be a family of robots, animals, or extra terrestrials?

01-25-2023, 10:28 PM
Yes I would love to play

01-25-2023, 11:48 PM
Please sign me and my moo family up! They’re looking for a new neighborhood.

01-25-2023, 11:58 PM
Here is the family that inspired Trini70 :)


beverley I love how yours turned out!

01-26-2023, 12:04 AM
Second family although I’m not sure I’ll use these for this swap. I may make new ones.

Just lurking for now. I love to make moos but haven't made any in a long time.

I thought this one over before opening the swap and the answer is no. This one is for humans only. Maybe any of those will be in a future swap.

Welcome Beverly, Heathermae77 & jfaskdown!

Jezebelle and Miss Iowa, I hope you're able to find some inspiration and join us.

01-29-2023, 01:46 PM
Please sign me up! I'll post pictures of my family before I put them in the mail.

01-29-2023, 02:11 PM
Welcome nanvan! Looking forward to seeing them.

01-31-2023, 09:41 PM
Here's my family - say hello to Maude, Oscar, Willie, Timmy and Nana. Will post when I've put them in the mail.

01-31-2023, 10:40 PM
All the pics being shared so fun and creative! I have my bases done and heads cut out, just need to start working on some clothes.

02-01-2023, 04:44 PM
Those are great, nanvan. Nice to see nana make an appearance! I'm working on a Moo family, and I've got a Gram going, too.

Please sign me up, trini! :D

02-01-2023, 10:37 PM
Does this mean you'll be signing up nanner?:)

02-02-2023, 12:44 AM
Those are great, nanvan. Nice to see nana make an appearance! I'm working on a Moo family, and I've got a Gram going, too.

Please sign me up, trini! :D

The photo for "Nana" is actually James Dean's grandmother.

02-02-2023, 05:10 PM
Got ya down nanner! Welcome!

02-02-2023, 05:59 PM
Got my stuff together - please sign me up!

02-02-2023, 08:56 PM

What a cool factoid. Thanks for sharing that!

02-02-2023, 09:09 PM
Thanks for adding me to the swap. Time to meet the family: :laugh:


02-03-2023, 01:27 AM
Love your family, Nanner - especially "Sir Baby" - such creative names!

02-03-2023, 02:00 PM
And here is my family too.


02-03-2023, 07:39 PM
More fun families! This swap is turning out to be more fun than I imagined it would be. I like that Anna is sitting down and how nanner "dressed up" her folks w/ bowties and necklaces.

02-03-2023, 08:17 PM
Please withdraw me from this swap, thank you!

02-03-2023, 09:04 PM
Loving all of your families :)

02-03-2023, 11:50 PM
Such wonderful family members, mrubyjean!

02-04-2023, 11:18 PM
I was away for a bit and just catching up on all the posts, what a bunch of awesome moo families!

nanvan - Timmy! His expression cracks me up. And I love that background on Maude.
Nanner and Martha - your cards are awesome, too.

02-05-2023, 10:55 AM
It's done Robin.

02-07-2023, 11:40 AM
I wasn't even lurking but this swap theme got in my head. So please add me.

When there were surreal swaps, I begin my magazine collection. I even subscribed to National Geographic for a year.

02-07-2023, 12:50 PM
My family is a little ďoffĒ. Lol!!!

02-07-2023, 10:11 PM
Love your family, dnewton972!

02-08-2023, 01:43 PM
My Moo's are heading your way, trini. :D

02-08-2023, 01:45 PM
Mailing mine today also.

02-08-2023, 10:55 PM
Welcome NancyL. I'm anxious to see what you create.

02-08-2023, 11:01 PM
Mail Call: Beverly, your cards arrived a couple days ago.

Nanner and mrubyjean, I'll be on the lookout.

02-10-2023, 10:37 AM
I've got 4 done. I have to type some tiny names. And look around for the makings of one more.

02-10-2023, 09:41 PM
I collected heads, torsos, legs and then I put them together. In the beginning, I thought 4 or maybe 5 would be difficult. But then, it was fun and I could have made more. If some part was too tall or long, I just scissored them down.

02-11-2023, 08:49 PM
My family moos went out in the mail today. May they travel fast and sure.

02-13-2023, 04:40 PM
Please sign me up. I have made my moo family -just need to name them. I’ll post a picture soon.

02-14-2023, 05:18 PM

02-15-2023, 01:41 PM
Great work, Bunnymthr. Mona = :laugh:

02-16-2023, 02:34 PM
I've been lurking and have decided to jump - this looks like fun!

02-16-2023, 05:17 PM
Welcome Jen! It's good to see another lurker joining in. These families are so fun to create.

02-16-2023, 05:30 PM
I know I'm repeating myself, but I am so enjoying seeing the variety of families that have been created. Bunnymther, your Jack cracks me up w/ his big feet.

02-16-2023, 07:13 PM
Sign me up, please! I'm new to the site and ready to create!

02-17-2023, 10:43 AM
Here is my Moo family. I was sick last week but Iím pretty sure I mailed them Saturday. If they donít arrive soon Iíll start looking for them.

02-17-2023, 11:09 AM
Welcome wyleeshouse! It's good to see another Kansas Citian here. I see that you're new to AfA. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

02-18-2023, 02:39 PM
Mailed my moos today!

02-18-2023, 09:25 PM
I've never worked in this size before, and I've never done collaged people before, but I had a great time! Here is my Moo family who is going into an envelope tonight but will go.into the mail Tuesday since Monday is a US holiday. I've tried and tried to upload my pictures without success but they will be on their way

02-19-2023, 12:22 AM
Search function isn't working for me and I can't find the answer anywhere... what is a MOO if I may ask?

02-19-2023, 04:45 PM
Stacy, where the name comes from I have no idea. It's all about the size 2 3/4" x 1" where the swap is concerned. If you check out some of the old, closed swaps in the archive section there's some more in depth answers, I'm just summing it up.

02-19-2023, 05:12 PM

03-16-2023, 11:26 AM
I'm sorry, I'm going to have to withdraw from this swap. I love the art that's been shown, but nothing is coming to me for my own set.

03-16-2023, 12:27 PM
No problem fundygirl. Thanks for letting me know.
