Have you ever made one? I've been thinking about making one for my v3 and I'd appreciate a little inspiration or advice on making them. If you have pictures of any that you've made that would be great too.

Are you thinking of making it out of clay?  I've never done a Tama cradle before, but have been considering it.  It would be pretty simple and I'm sure one small package of Fimo clay would probably do it.  I guess I'd probably start by rolling it into a ball and then shaping it from there with an indent.

That's a good idea! I actually have some fimo lying around so I'll see what I can do with it :)

The only Tama I have that would require a Cradle is Grimlock. The other two are TamaGos and they pretty much stand on their own.

There are a bunch of really awesome holders here, to give you some ideas: http://www.tamenagerie.com/view.html

 

I think they're really cool. It looks like they just used mostly clay and then painted it. You could probably find some beads and stuff to decorate the clay, too.

When I  made one, I wrapped the Tama up with some saran wrap and pressed it into the clay to get a good fit. You can smooth it out later, but at least then it keeps everything clean :)
