Hot Foo Foo Bonesuckers

by
These guys are called Bonesuckers....for the very obvious reason that they like to sit around sucking on bones. They're at the bottom of the food chain and the last of the scavengers to move in on a carcass, and there they'll sit in a little huddle making disgusting slurping noises for days and sometimes weeks if the animal is large enough.
Each one is hand made so they can vary in size a little but pretty much around 2" in diameter. They come packaged in a bag with header card, the bone is removable and different accessories for them to suck on will be made available at a later date.

Each figure costs $15 plus shipping and is available here
To Follow Jimmy Foo, the creator of Bonesuckers, check out his blog.

Magenta Morning Garuru by Itokin Park

by
I'm a big fan of the weird toys that Super7 sells. I don't even own any, nor do I sell them at Tenacious Toys, but I thought this one was worthy of some page time on my blog. Garuru is made by Itokin Park:

Itokin Park is at it again! The Magenta Morning Garuru is up at first light, but can't quite get his eyes open. Magenta vinyl with black, blue, gray, orange and gold sprays helps the elusive and sleepy Garuru hide in the sunrise and ease into his day. Available Friday, May 20th, 12noon Pacific, unless he sleeps in....

The Monster Family Magenta Morning Garuru is 4" tall, $35 ea.

The Little Prince Art Toys

by


Le Petit Prince (The Little Prince in English) is a fairy tale, of sorts, written in 1942 by Antoine de Saint-Exupery and published simultaneously in French and English in 1943. I'm pretty sure my mother read this one to me as a child. In any case, it's been on my radar all my life but might not be on yours. Definitely worth looking into, you can buy it on Amazon.

So it is interesting to me that now, 60+ years later, the title character of this piece of children's literature has been translated into a limited-edition art toy. The toys are about 9.5 inches tall, they're hand-painted and are clothed in real fabric. Buy the toys here, and find out more about the world of Le Petit Prince here.
