http://www.d20srd.org/srd/monsters/skeleton.htm

Magehand at will, but the amount of gear that may be
carried and used with magehand is determined by
your intelligence bonus (your mental powers).

The amount of gear
is equal to the carrying capacity that regular
humans and other races can carry, based
on their strength score.

Since a flying
skull has no limbs, it can not use its strength
score to carry anything.

Therefore the carrying capacity is based on
your intelligence score rather than your
strength score.

Drop any Hit Dice gained from class levels (to a minimum of 1) and raise remaining Hit Dice to d12s.

Flying Skulls are not affected by disarm, trip, fire, acid, poison, electricity, cold or sneak attack damage.

carried using the magehand at will spell-like ability.

Initial thoughts: This is beyond silly.

Why is the flying skull immune to all psionics and mind-affecting abilities? It presumably has a decent Intelligence score and is sentient. It isn't mindless. I don't understand why it has those immunities.

Yes, these PC races are created to be silly indeed... But they could still have some good uses in a regular game.

The skull.. yes... it's because it is a demonic skull mwuhaha... errr.. or well.. actually it could make sense that I remove it's immunity to psionics and mind affecting effects.

The racial classes have rather agressive
stat and ability increases, but that is to
try and get it to fit better with the original monsters CR.

I could change the rabbits HD to 1D12+4 and the
hippos HD to 1D20+4

to avoid problems with counting HD number... I. . 3 levels should not have more than 3 HD

I would strongly encourage you to stay away from using a d20 as a hit die. It just sounds insane. I would stick with slowly handing out racial abilities with level, which you've already done. I would also be cautious about having a player character's natural size become huge. It can lead to balance issues and can also make mobility (i.e. following the rest of the party) a real pain to deal with. Nearly every building or doorway would be off-limits.

Thanks for your comments. I have made some changes based on your advice :)
