Uglydogs Blue New Year's Eve

This is Bluedog and his friend, Buzzbee. Bluedog is a classic sized Uglydoll Uglydog, not to be confused with a bluedog democrat.

This New Year's Eve Bluedog is planning his Blue Moon New Year's Eve gathering to ring in the new year and to celebrate the Blue Moon that occurs on New Year's Eve only once every 19 years. His next Blue Moon party is scheduled for New Year's in 2028. And you're invited!

Mrs. Kasoogi tells him the moon will not be blue, but rather is the second full moon in a month. Bluedog doesn't care. He's knows blue can strike where you least expect it.

If the moons not blue, he won't be disappointed because he will be with his friends and family and plans to shine so bright blue himself that no one will miss the moon.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to All Our Friends!

If you would like to adopt your own Blue Uglydog, head on over to the Offical Uglydoll store link on the sidebar of this blog. There's a sweet fellow waiting there for you.

New Uglies for the Holidays

We began celebrating our Holiday's on Solstice and continued right through Christmas Day. Midnight is near and before we say goodbye to Christmas 2009 we wanted to say Happy Holiday's and Merry New Year to all our Uglydoll friends and family.

We welcomed a lovely new group of Uglydolls into our ever-expanding happy family. Pictured here from left to right are Wedgehead "Nevada Cat", Little Blue Ox, Suntan Target, Two Foot Fea Bea, Green Pointy Max "Chris", and Plunko "Sunny".
In front of Suntan Target is a set of Uma Series 5 from Giant Robot that I've been wanting for months, and I was fortunate to receive for Christmas!

The biggest surprise in this group was Green Pointy Max. Receiving him was one of the highlights of my life. . He was on my front porch when I came home inside a box inside a big white Santa-style bag. When I opened it and saw that face I was filled with joy.

He is an expression of the generosity and kindness of those who gave him to me, and one that I will treasure always.

This was the best Solstice / Christmas I've ever had, and Green Pointy Max helped push it over the top. You know, I think I'll go hug him now!
Want your own? All of these amazing goodies are available, or soon will be. Check Giant Robot for the Uma and also for Uglydoll plush. Of course the Official Uglydoll Store has all the current Uglydoll lineup. If you want Uma, I suggest a purchase sooner than later. They've been around awhile and could disappear from the shelves any day now.

Comet Debris Lucky Bags are up!

If you are familiar with the creative powers of Koji Harmon you will be excited to see he has his 2010 Lucky Bags up on his CometDebris website. His Lucky Bags are not just Lucky, but are also a mystery. Meaning: you don't know exactly what you are getting. In these bags you might get Tokoji Seijin or Tokoichi Seiju, along with other goodies from Koji. You are certain to get a high quality, limited edition, custom painted figure from Koji, and that's double luck to me. Go grab one soon. They won't last long.

Uglydoll Solstice Fun

Many of you will recognize our Dr. Max Abima in his clever Holiday disguise. He delights in making people smile. For Solstice he accomplished that goal in the local Starbucks. Who could look at that face and not feel the love?

Always the fashionable Ugly, he wore a nice set of Gama-Go buttons.

After meet and greets at Starbucks, we all headed to downtown Olympia to visit our local toy shop, Wind Up Here. We planned to browse and hug our way through the piles of Uglydolls and perhaps add to our family.
Mission accomplished: Meet Plunko.
We did adopt, but it didn't go exactly as we'd imagined. Plunko here was the ONLY Classic sized Uglydoll left in Olympia. He caught my eye through the big picture window in the storefront, and had me at hello. I adore him, and feel so very grateful to have found him. He immediately offered to help me set up an online business in my spare time, so this guy is a go-getter. I could use a little more getter in my go.

The staff at the toy store were so kind and helpful and made us feel welcome They even wound up robots for us to enjoy. One employee was especially fond of Uglies and had a handmade name tag with Uglydoll pics on it.

Our Little Wedgehead "Jammer" jumped into Dr. Max's bag when we left the house. Max proudly showed him off to everyone.

One of the highlights of our day was watching the expression on people's faces as they looked over the few remaining Uglydolls at Wind Up Here. Their eyes would go all dreamy, they'd sigh and smile, or laugh. We saw two Little Uglies get adopted as we waited, a Little Trucko and Little Wage. Uglies just warm the heart.

I was impressed with those nifty metal robots in the store. They wind up and walk. One called Chief Robot has a light that flickers in his chest while he walks. I foresee a metal robot collection in Dr. Max's future to go along with his button collection and Steven the Bat collection and.......

Happy Solstice Everyone!
