Picture of Silly Cyclops

Silly Cyclops

With its distinctive one eye in the middle of its forehead, the Cyclops has a reputation of being a terrible mythical creature from Greek mythology. However, the Duncan® Tiny Tot Cyclops breaks that stereotype. His goofy smile and short little horns await your creativity to turn him into a desk mate for any child’s room.
