    Oh for the LOVE
    I had Slivia (that purple kanga)
    She was my favorite. I just LOVE purple.
    But FOUR EYES & the whole mimic thing was too much. I was just staring at her for HOURS. IN REAL LIFE. Time just kind of got away from me, I would just STARE. o.0 at those eyes. *creepy factor. I HAD to get her out of my town ASAP. It was too bad she was nice, always asked for PWP and everything :-( Now she is on my Main Street (><) So no Kangas are allowed in my town. ESPECIALLY ones with joeys :.....(

    I love Kangaroos! I think they deserve more love <3
    Mathilda and Marcy are two of my favourite!
    Mathilda has black fur and red cranky eyes, like Roscoe and I really love this style!
    And Marcy! She's simply too adorable for words!
    In my old town I had Kit, but she wasn't one of my fav!
    I think also Astrid is really really cute and unique looking with those star eyes!

    I love Marcie, she was one of my original villagers in my latest town. I didn't like the baby in the pouch though, because it did all of the faces which Marcie did at the same time. I also like Astrid the kangaroo because the name reminds me of "asteroid"

    Kind of interesting to see some say they don't like how the joey mimics the mother.

    Granted, the animation would be fairly simple since the joey is just a head, but I'm guessing it was easier to clump the mom and child as an unit than two different characters.

    Personally, the joey is more of an accessory than an actual secondary character for it to actually obtain its own personality. It'll never talk to you and it makes sense it'd mimic mom.

    I think that's precisely the reason so many people find it offputting. A baby is not an accessory - it's creepy to see it treated as such. Of course giving it a name, personality and separate emotions would require more work; however, there's really no reason to have the joeys in the first place. A female kangaroo doesn't need to be shown with a baby any more than a different species animal. To me it's not much more than a poorly done gimmick

    I have two kangaroos in Salem - Mathilda and Kitt. Mathilda gets on my nerves once in a while (she is a snooty, after all), but for the most part, she is a good villager. Kitt is a normal, so that means she's just sweet and adorable. She fits into the town so easily, I could never give her up.

    I like the baby kangaroos. They never bothered me or creeped me out.

    My new town had Marcie in it when I started and I like her a lot. I think she's really cute.

    I like marcie but i feel like the rest dont have very desirable designs. Carrie is cute too but none of them really call out to me.

    That's exactly it for me. The joey feels like a gimmick, like if all the smug villagers carried a briefcase or something. Personally though, the kangaroo designs just aren't to my liking (and with 300+ villagers, there are a lot that I like better).
