Oh, what fun it is to spot treasures in the trash. I can’t help but wonder what decided the sad fate of this very fun-looking pink toy car, whose official name is the Disney Minnie Mouse Hot Rod Coupe Ride-On Toy by Kid Trax. While this polka dot marvel does not look terribly Hot Rod-like to me, it sure is a sweet ride. Let’s check it out!

Isn’t it charming that certain toy manufacturers would design a Pink Toy Telephone that’s so retro, there’s 100% certainty that no child using this toy has ever actually seen (let alone used) a phone that looks like this. What a way to teach the history of telephone communications!

Manufactured by Just Play, here’s the lowdown on this vintage-inspired phone: Continue reading Pink Thing Of The Day: Minnie Mouse Pink Toy Phone

Boot Worn By Mrs. Potts in Beauty and The Beast

This colorful, lace-up ankle boot is one of a pair of boots worn by the actress playing the character of Mrs. Potts in the Broadway production of Disney musical, Beauty and The Beast. Aren’t they fantastic? If it weren’t for these photos you would probably never have seen this rad boot, as Mrs. Potts‘ feet are generally obscured by her nearly floor-length skirt (and the fact that she is, you know, a human teapot).

Maurizio Cattelan, Daddy, Daddy

Daddy, Daddy (2008) by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, is a sculpture of Walt Disney’s Pinocchio that was originally conceived for the  Guggenheim Museum’s group exhibition, theanyspacewhatever (2008 – 2009). Cattelan installed the work in the fountain at the base of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed rotunda, suggesting that hapless puppet has plummeted to his death from the ramps above and drowned.

Though Disney’s Pinocchio eventually finds a happy ending through moral redemption, Cattelan’s puppet is titled with a filial cry for approval or protection that has apparently gone unanswered.
