If you’ve ever been fortunate enough to see a photo of a Blob Fish online, then you know that this Blob Fish stress toy (from our friends at Gift Republic) bears an uncanny resemblance to the real thing.

Instagram Photo of The Week: Big Eyed Toys By Ty

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.

There’s a Tiki Bar up the block from me that has a row of little solar-powered Hula Dancer figures lined up in the front window, and the sunlight makes them dance tirelessly each day until it sets; so enchanting.

Best of all, she may arrive dressed in Pink!

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, then you might recall that I recently attended an art event at the National Museum of Mathematics (aka MoMath). On the way out of the museum that evening, I decided to pop in to the gift shop, where I noticed something at first seems a bit incongruous: a tiny Pink Bathtub . . . that was in use as a bin to hold little soaps shaped like the Pi symbol. Oh, the cleverness.
