  1. Unicorns do exist. I believe because they are free spirit an their mane flows the colours of the rainbow. For in each of use is still that little child who dreams at night that the next day they would see their special Unicorn through the eyes of their children or grandchildren

  2. Of course they are real. You see them all the time in Africa. Sure they’ve put on a little weight over the centuries, and they call them rhinos now, but they are beautiful!

    1. Of course unicorns are real! Otherwise Santa and the Easter Bunny who come to visit each year, and the fairies and gnomes that play in my garden each night would not be real either. And I know for certain that the pots of gold at the end of each rainbow exist for they contain all the goodness, happiness and hope for the world. How joyous all these creatures make our childhood and with a bit of luck and imagination, the rest of our life.

  3. Are Unicorns real? Well, I’m not sure I can or should answer that. What I can do is make a suggestion… I wouldn’t show doubt too loud… or you might find yourself gored by a magical horn and leaking glitter.

  4. I’m certain that there are unicorns — and, fairies (saw one just the other day), gnomes, pixies and such. We believe in a lot of things we cannot see, that doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

  5. Only the unimaginative do not believe in unicorns, they live in the hearts of the young and of the creative.

  6. I’m sure I saw one using the wind today for speed – whitish in color, trailed by all the new desert wildflowers …

  7. As long as you believe in unicorns, magic and fairy dust, all is well with the world. So of course they are all real.

  8. The knowing is in the heart. It’s interesting that unicorns smell like cotton candy, just like Diggory. 💗💜💙

  9. Unicorns exist in our hearts and imaginations, are seen out of the corners of our eyes, they tempt and beguile us, lead us to adventure, and sweep us off into our dreams.

  10. Of course, unicorns are real. They are as real as Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. Both of which I believe in whole-heartedly. Where’s the fun in NOT believing?!

  11. A unicorn sprinkles dust all over my house every night when I’m sleeping. Fortunately a fairy comes every two weeks and sweeps it all up!

  12. Of course they are real, although I haven’t seen my personal unicorn for quite awhile. They are around us when we are young girls who still believe in the wonder of magic and world of fantasy. They are light, glitter and mist and their horns sparkle in the sun. I believe!!!!

  13. Unicorns are absolutely real! Wherever unconditional love combines with frivolity in a heady, joy filled mix and the sweet aroma of sugar cookies fills the air…when soft clouds of glitter swirl in the sky, unicorns prance nearby.

  14. I wish to see a unicorn in my dreams tonight! lol but art gives a wonderful picture of what unicorns are. It’s beautiful. I wish God created one, who knows?

  15. According to the song sung by the Irish Rovers, there WERE Unicorns until they didn’t make it on to Noah’s Ark. I used to collect anything with a Unicorn on it back when they were very rare to find. I probably had 100 of them in my collection…cards, glass and porcelain figurines, stuffed, pewter, you name it! That was about 45 years ago and I still have a few left although I gave most of them away.

  16. I agree with Sandy. . . .I loved the Irish Rovers song about the Unicorns not making it on to the Ark. But I know that deep down that as long as their are storytellers and people with imaginations, there will indeed be Unicorns. They are my favorite animals! I have a couple of beautiful Sculpty Clay unicorns that friends made for me and once in awhile, I am sure I see them winking at me!

  17. They are as real as death and taxes, but prettier….

    That was me, anonymous. Can’t win without an email.

  18. Yep, they are real. Unicorns are mentioned in the Bible – in fact, they are mentioned in the Bible nine times.

  19. Of course, Unicorns are real. Unicorn brings the gifts of all possibilities, wisdom, and the clever pursuit of dreams.

  20. Of course they are real!!! Nowadays they have had more problems trying to keep the invisibility shield working on the horn. It seems that all the microwaves banging around a over now interfere with that invisibility cloak.

  21. Why of course unicorns are real! The last one I saw was giving Santa and the Easter bunny a ride around town.

  22. The Unicorn remains real to all who seek a peaceful, verdant, natural world. Sometimes, one can see her fleeting, violet shadow as she remains hidden behind the trees and gardens that we pass, in our haste to be “somewhere.” Or, our eyes gaze upward, at the miracle of the rainbow that she slings across a once-darkened sky. Only when we find silence amid the raucous din, will The Unicorn present her gift of enlightenment and creativity to those who would see or hear her truth.

  23. Oh YES! Unicorns are real! Rare to see, and art inspiring! I even had my pic taken with one at Mardi Gras last year! He was a very kind fellow to allow it!

  24. I saw one at the Renaissance Fair his name was Lancelot and he lived at the San Diego zoo till the cruelty to animals made him retire? which think was more cruel, I think he loved the attention of being around people.
    they found one siberia and it was huge. “https://www.theguardian.com/science/2016/mar/29/siberian-unicorn-extinct-humans-fossil-kazakhstan”

  25. Only in the imagination of the free spirited and creative minds… but the narwhal.. well theres another thing. …

  26. I imagine there are unicorns wandering the woods behind my house! This would be perfect for capturing them on paper.

  27. there are multiple unicorns… some are visible, others seen with inner vision. they’re all pretty colorful in personality, some are more elegant in outer appearance, most are aware of their worth and calibre. others take advantage of their uniqueness, but still are admired from a distance. sometimes lonesome, being rare in many places, they comfort those who need a reminder that miracles are experienced when one’s heart is open.

  28. I believe unicorns are real. They are just way too smart to interact with humans. Unicorns are gentle, magical creatures, too magical for us to even grasp. Thank you for the opportunity to win this awesome giveaway.

  29. Yes why of course they are real😁😁by 4 year old hunts for one every single day.. and she says horses are just unicorns who havent gained their horn yet❤ awesome giveaway! Thanks for the opportunity!!

  30. Unicorns are definitely real, but have gone into hiding due to being hunted for the magic contained inside their horns. Duh! Havent you read “into the land of unicirns”

  31. Yes! Unicorns are read! They are mentioned in the Bible!
    (But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.
    Isaiah 34:7 )

  32. #Unicorns are absolutely real! 10 years ago my house burnt down and what was not burned was wet, smelly and so Black!! I was so sad and depressed my mind was black! Then a few months later a little girl knocked at the door from the house i still live in at the moment (i was still so depressed and black inside my head), she was not older than 8 years and said she was living a few doors away from me! She told her name and said to me: “i’ve seen you walking through the street and you are looking so sad all the time! I answered that i was oké and asked her if she wanted an ice-cream! She answered “NO thanks”, i am oké, i have made something for you which is making you happy again, and it makes all the black thoughts and feelings going away and fill them again with bright colorful shiny thoughts again, it will make you laugh and dance again! I was a bit flabbergasted, how could this sweet girl know all these things, i never spoke with someone about it! The girl was opening her shiny pink bag and was getting something out of it. It was a white horse with a black tail! She gave it to me and said ,”i have make this for you from the mud in the woods and mixed it with glitters and they helped me to get it stay hard so that i could paint it and put a secret in it! She gave the horse to me, it was as big as my hand and it smelled so good i couldn’t get my eyes of it! I was afraid that i would let it fall down so i placed it very carefull on the stairs. I wanted to hug the girl but she was gone! Were she stood was a small handwritten letter, when you have to cry or feeling sad just get my horse and cuddle it! It loves to be cuddled and if you have to cry don’t worry that it would fall apart because it’s getting wet! Miracles can’t be burned and all your colorfull cotton and beautiful paintings, you will make them again!!! You will get back all yours pencils, paper, paint, crochet tools and everything wat is burned back! Just believe in it! I fell so emotional I looked around if i could see the girl, but there was no trace of her to be seen! I walked back to my house and closed the door and took the horse in my hand, i cuddled it and at that moment i heard a horse like sound outside, i looked through the window and saw the #unicorn with the girl on his back, and at that moment i also heard something in my livingroom were i had put the mini horse on the table, tiple tiny footsteps when i came down the clay horse that the girl had made for me was changed in a little mini baby #Unicorn the black tail was rainbow-colored also her manes and ponny and the was growing a diamond blinking horn on the head and the eyes were changed from black to bright blue! I couldn’t believe what i saw i thought i was dreaming but no i wansn;t! When i lay my hand on the table and the mini #Unicorn jumped in my hands and fell asleep! From that day on everything changed, the world was becoming brighter and i was feeling better and better and the #Unicorn got bigger and bigger! I still have her! when it’s early in the morning when everyone is asleep i am climbing on her back and than she flies around and show me the wonderfulest colors i’ve ever seen! I never told any one because no one would believe me when i said i have a #Unicorn.My black thoughts are gone, i am happy again1 i am start up drawing again, i have to start all over with cheap stuff which isn’t always funny to work with but better something than nothing! And the people around me are saying Sas i am so happy you are shining again and laughing again after all you’ve been through.. You’re a #Winner they always say! The only thing i can do at those moments is schmirking and answer them . It’s not about all the things you own what makes you happy, it,s not about money although it’s easier to live if you have a bit more than the minimum! I found out that things can be replaced allthough it hurts but you live, You have some money so you can eat, why having a lot of money. when the earth is burned and the animals and plants and fruit isn’t there anymore then you also have nothing!! You can’t eat money!! It’s all about believing, if you don’t believe in mirrecals and see everything as black and grey, You will never be happy believe me! I would almost say i have a #Unicorn which does excist buf i am afraid you all would think that i was getting crazy isn’t it! A lot people said o yes then we would call the hospital for you to keep you in! But a lot of children and young adults had a blink in their eyes the same as what i have the people told me! Believe, Behave , Benice and you will fly on the back of a Unicorn which is showing you things you’ve never see before. The little girl i havent seen since! She wasn’t living were she said she was! She was an angel from heaven send to me to bring me back my live and believing that everything is gonna be ok;e just be patient.
    Thank you my dear Unicorn <3.

  33. After seeing your oh so cute book on Diggory, these are just the right supplies to give me and others a nudge to try something new.

  34. Sure! Unicorn’s are as real as anything else because reality is what you make of it. Dream it, draw it, imagine it and it’s as real as you want it to be
