These little wooden “dodo” birds are pretty adorable.  Spotted at an anthro store recently.

bath time fun time


Rubber duckies on the prowl. Sooo many to choose from. Bath time made stylish.
Can’t remember the store name, but it’s on Broadway in the West 70s or 80s

barbie the architect


I found this really amusing.  You can now vote for what career Barbie will have next.  Of course by default I’ll vote ARCHITECT!  The choices for jobs are Environmentalist, Surgeon, News Anchor, Computer Engineer, and last but not least, Architect.  Found out about this through another blog and thought it was hilarious.  Even though I never really liked Barbies and the one that I did have I ruined, I put in a vote anyway.  Who knows maybe if she’s picked to be an Architect I’ll buy one just for fun…haha.  VOTE HERE by Feb. 12.

my current obsession…i want one!



I discovered the Dunny series by Kidrobot after moving to NY.  I bought my first one at the Cooper Hewitt Museum and collected a few since then from the Kidrobot store in Soho on Prince St.  They are these small 3″ tall vinyl figures that selected artists have put their designs on for each collection.  Kidrobot releases a new series of the Dunnys (as well as plenty other types of toy figure series) every so often.  They are a “blind box toy” so you never know what you are going to get when you by them.  I’ve been really fortunate and only had like one repeat so far.
