Life’s a Beach: one in need of a miniature Pink Lifeguard Tower. Part of the Candylab line of quality wooden block toys, this tower is a must-have for any beach-themed play set. Let’s see what it looks like out of the box!
Grrrr! We collected so many awesome and unusual Pink Things for this space at the recent NY Now show, but one of our most charming finds is this Pink Rubbish Monster, which is part of the Kruselings line of fantasy dolls for young girls.
Candy-colored plastics and glass lure us to discover shells, nails, bones, and even weapons embedded in this complex assemblage. Prosthetic eyes stare back at us, and two small wooden figurines flank a central “empty chair.”
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.

Hey, do you remember where we were at this time last year? Shut away in our homes with no fun stuff to do except take long walks, order food for delivery, and binge-watch Netflix. Some of us are still doing that.
