Can you look at these Pig Juggling Balls without breaking into a huge smile? I dare you.  The box declares that “Pigs Will Fly” — but I bet that depends on how skilled of a juggler you are! Manufactured by Ridley’s, you can buy these Happy Pigs at Wild & Wolf!

Just as ABC did for a TV Show Reboot that is, thankfully, no longer on the air, Playstation has launched an immersive ad campaign for the upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man Game in the Subway Cars that run on the S Shuttle line along 42nd Street between Times Square and Grand Central Station.

As you can see, the cars are quite vibrant and inviting on the exterior, but the interiors are also full of fun details that you might miss if you don’t look closely.

Check out the Spider on each seat back!

And while at first glance it appears that some inconsiderate riders have left their newspapers behind on the seats, let’s take a closer look.

It’s the Daily Bugle!

The trip is only one-minute between stations, but the car was still a kick to ride in!

Marvel’s Spider-Man Game for PS4 will be released September 7th, 2018. Find out more at This Link!

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Tiddlywinks in a Glass

To be honest, the translucent pink disks that fill this glass are probably not official Tiddlywinks, since Tiddlywinks is a competitive game involving four colors of winks, none of which is pink. I like looking at them though.

In 1965, the Arco toy company (later acquired by Mattel) manufactured a Flintstones Bowling Game with pins molded in the likeness of Fred Flintstone. Fred sure did love to bowl.

Ah, David Shrigley, we love his heavily-warped worldview and sense of the absurd! This Domino Set designed by Shrigley is part of the new Play collection, a collaboration between the artist and Third Drawer Down Studios, as offered by the New Museum of Contemporary Art.

Domino Tile Details

There’s rarely a dull moment when you’re playing games with David Shrigley. Instead of the traditional uniform of matching dots and tiles, you’ll find characters such as Skulls, Grumpy Old Men, and Raggedy Cats on each tile, which makes this 28-piece set a perfect diversion for when you or your partner are plotting your next move.

Available in the Gift Shop at the New Museum of Contemporary Art on Bowery and Prince Street in lower Manhattan, priced at $65 per set, $55.25 for Members.
