Pink Thing Of The Day: Party Pig!

This small toy figure of a Pig in a Pink Party Hat and matching festive outfit (or simply, Party Pig, as I enjoy calling him) was gifted to me by a friend on my most recent birthday. Currently, he hangs out in my living room near the stereo. A little Googling reveals that he is part of a 5-piece set of animal mini figures  called Party Farm from  Bullseye’s Playground. The set was originally sold by Target in November of 2021 and is now (understandably) sold out, but you can still find it for sale on eBay and other similar sites.

When you were a kid, did you collect Beanie Babies? I never did, because they were invented when I was well into adulthood, but I still have a small collection of them because people have been giving them to me as gifts for over thirty years. Why, I have no idea. My point is that I have no ocassion to really think of Beanie Babies and their many spin-off plush friends unless I am attending a NY Now gift show, and then I enjoy spending a few minutes in the Ty booth checking out all their crazy new plushies that have huge, oversized  eyes like those paintings by this artist. They all look like they are on acid, which I find creepy. Of course I could not resist snapping a pic of this gigantic, round and very Pink Unicorn. Because, Pink Thing.
