For those of you that use GIMP, you can use ABR brushes. I figured it out today and it worked! I have always read that you can't use them in GIMP, so I haven't saved very many.
Follow these directions:
Place the ABR file
into its own folder. For instance a folder on your desktop named ABR-FILES.
Now open Gimp and go to Edit>Preferences>Folders and select Brushes.
Add the path to that new ABR-FILES folder to the brush path interface. Select ok to keep the changes.
Then restart Gimp. The new brush/brushes should be available now in the brushes palette.
Remember some ABR, PAT, and other Adobe files are not compatible with Gimp.
Have the PNG files been provided by any chance? These are such adorable brushes and I'd so love to use them. Thanks a bunch!

Here's my layout. I went for a retro theme to go with the picture.
