Okay, following the advice above, I cut off the bottom two inches of each foot and attached two new foam boards to each foot. I then shaped the sides so that they slope outwards to a flat bottom. That solved the problem perfectly! Here's a pic:



The bottom of the foot is much wider as well:



Works great! And I can do the Electric Slide with Bob now, too. ;-)

I bought some of the "puzzle mat" pieces that I think would work well as tread, but I'm undecided as to whether to use it or not. It would make the foot even wider than it is now (to prevent the rolling problem), and I'm not sure how much wider the foot can go without looking funny. The extra traction does appeal to me, though...

Thanks again,
Rorr

Once you put the toes on the front and all the hair on it, you won't see the wideness nearly as much if at all.
