The Droplet is a very special creature that has a very happy nature and is nearly always smiling. It starts life as a very small round drop on the underside of large plant leaves. As it grows rounder and larger a stalk forms at the top between where it is attached to the leaf and its main body. This stalk is stretched as the Droplet gains weight. When the Droplet reaches maturity (between 4-6 months) it detaches from the leaf and drops to the ground. Its two large flat feet are designed to absorb the shock of the drop.
