How cute are these little guys? If you are familiar with the Pokemon species, then you know this round, pink creature is called a Jigglypuff. This past summer, Jigglypuff was available to win as a prize at various carnival games found at Coney Island’s Luna Park. This plush toy is about the size of basketball.
How long has it been since I featured a Bacon Thing of The Day on this site? The answer is: So very long. The wait is now over, however, as a I recently located an apprioriate Bacon Thing of The Day in the form of this teeny Plush Bacon Toy. Oh, the cuteness.
Mini Bacon Plush is by Yummy World, and you can see by the tag that they make an entire line of cute mini-plush food item toys. Because someone had to.

It’s bad enough that this adorable tiny Pink Octopus Toy designed for an infant crib was thrown out like so much garbage. It’s even worse that it was thrown out on the corner of a busy street (Second Avenue, to be exact) rather than being disposed of properly in a private garbage bin. For fucks sake, New Yorkers, have some respect for your city. Litterbugs are the worst!
OMG, how cute is this week’s Pink Thing of The Day? I found this adorable plushy at Flame Con 2019 and was informed that this is a Pokémon creature called Ditto. Here’s the lowdown from the Pokémon Wiki (yes, there is one):
In its natural state, Ditto is a light purple or pink amorphous Pokémon with vestigial facial features. The face consists of a simple mouth and beady eyes. It also appears to have two pseudopods protruding from its body that it uses as arms. It is capable of transforming into an exact replica of any physical object, including its form and abilities. However, if Ditto tries to transform into something based on memory, it may get some of the details wrong.
Good to know!
I spotted this adorable Shark Backpack for kids at the Gift Show at Javits Center this past weekend. The tag say it’s by Jack And Friends, a company that also makes super soft and cuddly animal blankets for Babies. You could probably find this wherever their other times are sold. These newborn baby clothes would go perfect with the backpack. So cute!
I had just gotten off the C Train at Spring Street when I passed right by a lovely Christmas Tree Lot, where someone had created these adorable little Reindeer from leftover twigs and bits of trees.
What a clever idea! I don’t know if they were for sale, or if they were just for adding spirit to the lot, but I enjoyed looking at them.
New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) design student Malorie Pangilinan created this Whale-shaped mirror, taking her inspiration from Kawaii; the quality of cuteness in the context of Japanese culture.
It sure is cute!

Geoffrey’s neighbor has the most adorable dog, Teddy (pictured above). Teddy (pronounced “Teddeeeee!”) is an inquisitive and friendly puppy, and thus is fond of traveling from his owner’s apartment over to Geoffrey’s via their adjacent balconies. Here we see Teddy posed ever so cutely in a terracotta planter. “Teddeeeee!” we called out to him, but he would not come into the apartment for a visit. Not on this occasion, anyway.
Do you like Monsters? I sure do. If you have young kids who enjoy using your Apple devices and are looking for a fun iPad or iPhone App that you can download for your little ones to keep themselves amused (and maybe have fun playing it yourself) I recommend Monsterpark Zoo, a new children’s game, just released on October 15th.
Monsterpark Zoo was created by Brooklyn-based husband and wife team Eric and Shannon Althin, who are also fine artists and gallerists (being owners of the late great Bold Hype Gallery, which we miss very much). Eric and Shannon’s company, Roo Roo Games, previously released the popular title, Stumpy’s Alphabet Dinner. We expect that Monsterpark Zoo may become even pore popular!
Eric Althin offers that the couple’s 3 year old daughter was the inspiration behind Monsterpark Zoo. “She loves monsters and animals,” he explains, “and if she sees that someone is sad, she always wants to know how to make them happy again. During a trip to the Brooklyn Zoo it all fell into place and we knew we had our next game concept: Monster zoo animals that need help to make them happy!”
Monsterpark Zoo takes place in a friendly monster world, featuring 10 unique zoo monsters with different troubles. Some need food, some require a bath, while others need their enclosures cleaned. It is up to the player — who assumes the role of the Zoo Keeper — to figure it all out through fun, intuitive, and stress free game play!
Monsterpark Zoo is designed to encourage problem solving, emotional development, coordination, and laughter! It is aimed at ages 2-6 but is sure to delight kids of all ages. “I’ve been drawing monsters since I was old enough to hold a crayon,” Althin continues, “so designing all the different monster animals for Monsterpark Zoo was a super fun and creatively rewarding process.
Our ambition is to keep updating the game with new monsters in the future (with no additional cost for the parents) to keep things fresh and fun.” We already have some awesome new characters in mind!
