Mynus is Princess for a Day

Sometimes my jewelry box is missing a trinket, but recently it was missing a entire drawer.  It didn't take me long to track it down.  Our adorable Mynus, who we call "Sunny" to match her disposition, discovered May 28th is the birthday of one of our favorite people.  She chose her tiara to celebrate, after she tried on all the other bobbles in the box.

Sunny may be quiet, but that does not hamper her creative flow one little bit.  She can also bit quite serious at times, but always loves a bit of dress-up.

Happy Birthday!!!

Dr. Max's Visit to Giant Robot!

Did we make it to Giant Robot!  Yes, we did! It is the one and only store we visited our my quick trip to LA.  Giant Robot is an ICON, so we busted out hump to find it.  Here you see the cool sign, and below, Dr. Max Abima chilling on the windowsill.  We tried to take some indoor pics as promised, but the clerk would not allow photos.  Sorry. But I can describe it!  It was small, cozy, and awesome.  Lots of cool items tucked everywhere.  Domo!  And of course, Uglydolls!  You would love this store.
If you click on the picture of Max you will see up in the window....Handmade Uglydolls!  Look hard.

Less Than an Hour

In less than an hour well know the identity of the new toy from Uglydoll.
Will it be vinyl?
Will it be plush?
Will it be tin?
Or limited edition?
I heard something about an upcoming robot or tin toy for adults.  Will it be that????

What's Everybody Waiting For?

It's tonight... Saturday, May 22 at 7PM.  Uglydoll will reveal their new toy made in Japan.  Our Wage family is gathered and waiting with an enviable focus and patience for 7pm to roll around.  Me, I'm pacing and puttering.

Dr. Max Abima and friends took a road trip from the Pacific Northwest, down to LA, and back again.

Below we find him enjoying some fresh air with his good buddy Wade Wage.  Can you guess where?

Dr. Max took time to appreciate the travel methods of Uglys who came before.

Check back soon to see Dr. Max in LA!

Uglydoll Tin Robots are HERE!

My three Uglydoll Tin Robots are here.  I've been admiring them all day.  Their boxes were a big surprise.  I shouldn't be surprised by the creative punch of Uglydoll at this point, but I AM!

How can I tell you how much fun these boxes are.  They are covered in David Horvath art, and little text bubbles that make us laugh and laugh.

Here you see the back and two sides of the boxes.  Get a load of that big blue Uglybot with what appears to be wings and a rocket pack?  HA!  I want him!
If you click the photo it will big up so you can get a closer look at these detailed boxes.

Thought, care, and fun are put into every aspect of an Uglydoll creation.  I sometimes imagine David Horvath at his art station drawing and thinking of little tidbits to tuck here and there that will delight and surprise us.

  INSIDE the front flap of the box you'll find MORE art!  There's even a little Ugly character in there I've never seen before that I would dearly love to adopt.  I won't give away the surprise, but I'll tell you it has one eye.  One-eyed Uglys knock my socks off.  No explaining it.

Check back tomorrow.  If all goes as planned the Robots will be out of the boxes and posing for more pics and MAYBE a Robot Video to share with you!  Woot. You wanna see these bad boys go, don't ya?

Thank you, Uglydoll!  The joy just keeps coming.
To get your own Robots just check my posts below for order info.
