There is a plush toy company called Jelly Cat which hopefully a few of you have heard of. They offer many wonderful animal creatures. They also offer a series of plushies known as “Amusables” that features all sorts of household and everyday items with smiling faces. And yes, they are pretty amusing. But the best ones are those that take things a step further and are not so much “amusing” as they are just plain weird. I don’t know about you but I love the idea of crying into a smiling pretzel or acorn. When I first saw the “Amusables” page on their website, I started spontaneously naming each toy but felt seriously challenged when I saw these two guys above. “Salty” and “Piney” (or “Coney”) seemed too obvious. That’s your challenge for today, think of more kickass names for these guys. Also consider this my very, very early holiday-birthday wish list.
It’s time for the latest WEEKLY NEW WONDERS PLAYLIST featuring the finest songs that have crossed our path in recent days. They are all utterly glorious and gorgeous. Listen below on Soundcloud or Spotify.
