Thank you! I just ordered all, including "Joey," for my three and one half year old granddaughter who has an extremely political mom and dad. One is a local politician, was a presidential appointee and a political advisor, and one who is a political communications director! Our Granddaughter is even named after Frances Perkins who was responsible for our SS System and the first woman appointed to the Cabinet!
