Pink Thing Of The Day: Barbie’s Magical Motor Home

Have you heard the expression, “I want to be Barbie, because the bitch has everything!” It is so true, and one of her prize possessions is a Pink Motor Home which is, in fact, a bit magical. Barbie’s Magical Motor Home is somewhat like a Transformer, in that converts from its van-like original form into both a sporty Jeep (for off-roading activity) and a “luxury home” for glamping! Barbie’s Motor Home has evolved over the years but this one is circa 1990 and currently sells on eBay and similar collectors’ auction sites for hundreds of dollars.

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Pokémon Ditto Plushy

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!

Pink Thing of The Day: Bubba Gump Shrimp Mascot

Navy Pier in Chicago is the place to be if you want to take a bunch of photos of a person who gets paid to hang out in a Bubba Gump Shrimp Mascot costume. Appropriate for a Pink Thing of The Day, the costume is a cheerful shade of Shrimp Pink, so that counts!

It is this guy’s job to stand outside the restaurant and try not scare people away, I think.

Hello Ladies, are you perhaps hungry for some delicious chain-restaurant seafood?

He is willing to go the extra mile to recruit those who wish to dip him in drawn butter.

This tropical-themed Pink Garbage Bin, with its lovely stenciled palm tree motif, was spotted on the sidewalk out front of a Carribean-style take-out restaurant in or near SoHo NYC. My iPhone is telling me it’s on Crosby Street, but I’m not sure how many blocks it is below Houston. Also, I do not know the name of the restaurant, but next time I am in that neighborhood I’ll get my shit together and update this post!

Do Unicorns ever go off trend? I don’t think so, and certainly not as long as the amazing Flying Tiger Shop has these Pink Unicorn String Lights in stock!

These lights would be a great addition to a little girl’s bedroom, but they would also be fun to light up the room of an adult who just loves Unicorns, or the color Pink!

Just $8 for a string of ten lights, while they last!

Pink Thing of the Day: Pink Mayor McBlob and Friends

How Do You Do? (Photo By Gail)

You may remember Mayor McBlob from his previous appearance on The Gig in This Post. Well, he’s back, and he’s this week’s Pink Thing. This time, he has a couple of his friends with him: a Pink Mayor McBlob Resin Pin and a tiny Mayor McBlob Phone Charm, which is too cute to be believed.

Mayor McBlob was created by a fantastic lady artist named Sciamellis, who is located in Santiago, Chile, but she sells her creations online via her LoveCats Collectibles Etsy Store. If you want to do some shopping and maybe give him a home, sometimes she even offers free shipping!

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Chinese Lanterns Store Display

It is no secret that shopping at Pearl River Mart is my jam, because that store has everything. Earlier this year, Pearl River opened a new location in the Chelsea Market, and that is where I discovered this breathtaking decorative display of Pink Chinese Paper Lanterns and colorful paper parasols, which inspired today’s ‘pink thing’ post. These lanterns can be used (and re-used) in place of balloons as festive party décor, don’t you think? They are so lovely.

Chinese Paper Lanterns in a variety of colors and sizes are available for super cheap at both Pearl River locations (Chinatown and Chelsea) and they can also be purchased online at This Link!
