All About Dr. Max

Tomorrow is our 5th Anniversary with Dr. Max.  Plans for a big celebration have been in the works.  Max is busy trying to decide what to wear.  He knows all eyes will be on him, but that's nothing new!

There will be cake, gifts, streamers, music, movies, and tasty nibblings.  He might even make the rounds of his favorite stores and have his pic taken with his friends who work there.

Five years with the extraordinary Mr. Max went by so quickly.  We love ya, Max.

Giant Robot Delivers

When Giant Robot teams up with Uglydoll, they deliver 10 pounds of fun in a 2 pound box.

Though this group arrived together, they quickly spread out and disappeared across the Ugly Shire.  They are a busy lot, and will keep us on our toes.

I'm forming a tracking party today, and supplying them with cookies and cameras.  When we find these guys, we'll report back.

Luv You Ox of a Different Color

Goodness.  Fea Bea came across another Valentine Ox looking for a ride.

I think Feabs will find a way to tote them both.

But what if there are MORE!  She'll need a bigger wagon, because these Ox's are irresistible.

Crocus Dreams

Little Poe is an Uglydoll that likes the outdoors, but here in the moist and chilly northwest, he enjoys an indoor perch in the winter.

When I found him pumping his extended wings,  I knew something was up.

"The crocus are sprouting," he exclaimed in that voice only Poe can do.

Though the weather is still cold and wet,  this Poe has crocus dreams, soon to come true.  Wippy may just join him this year.  I know I will!

Dr. Max Up Close

I've been asked many times, what does Dr. Max Abima do when he is not engaging his genius in  professional pursuits, so I shadowed him with the camera.  Caught him in a candid moment indulging his inner artist.

I assume it was an art project.  Must check those eggs in a few days.  Max is also a geneticist.

Ox OXOX Valentine

Fea Bea doesn't share her wagon with just anyone.  But the charms of Ox worked their magic on her.  Just imagine having the charm and good looks of Ox.  Hey!  You can!

Found a couple on Amazon, but with magnetism like his, they won't last long.

Best Friends Valentine

Fea Bea likes hanging around with these two Best Friends from Uglydoll.  Wedgehead and Ox have been best friends for years and they know how to represent you on Valentine's Day.

A piece of candy is sweet in the moment.  The sweet on these two never fades.

Yes!  You get both of them holding half of the Best Friends heart.

Cute factor: 10+
Price:  Cheaper than chocolates.
Happy memory factor: 10++

You can get them from the Uglydoll Store, or maybe your local toy store.

Valentine Ice Bat

Nothing says I love you like I LUV ME Ice Bat.  I mean, think about it.

So if you love I LUV ME like I love I LUV ME, then maybe you love yourself enough to get one!  Or give one.

Six dollars will get it done at Giant Robot.
