Svan Scooter

scooter_02.jpg
Svan Scooter ~ the perfect mix between the scandinavian sleek bent birch and playful scooter... it took everything in us not to jump on that and roll around barkar hangar. The one odd (or perhaps brilliant?) detail, was the use of what looked like office furniture casters for the wheels... now if only they'd make a larger one that could be used as a desk chair/studio transportation.

rabbids.jpg
On more rabbids to love, just found a link to these, 20th Anniversary Rabbids, but there were only 150 sets made, and it doesn't seem to want to let me add them to the cart. See my other Rabbids here.

Endorphins @ NOTCOT

endorphins.jpg
Endorphins are the feel good hormones... you know you love em... they give you that happy high. And who would have thought that you could sculpt them out of resin for a similar effect? Well the pictures made me smile enough... but i just received the sweetest package from Dave Pressler today with a set of 4 Endorphins from his latest show at Munky King ~ and as much as i love collectible toys, i HAD to open one... its living just below my monitor next to my mimobot... and in reality ~ that grin is even more contagious than you can imagine, when you can actually hold them in your hands. Big thanks to Dave, these endorphins gave me just the energy boost i needed today!

Rabbid Portraits

rabbidsmain.jpg
Rayman's Rabbids in combination with the Wii changed my life. (And now there is also a wii off to change Pres Rodriguez's life out in Florida ~ CONGRATS! to our wii winner). That being said, anyone who has yet to experience the insanity of the Rabbids on the wii, get to it! So, i finally did a mini shoot with my vinyl Rabbids... and they were too fun not to share, more below.

Lego Pop Art

poplegoart.jpg
Only thing better than classic surrealist/pop art... and legos... are surrealist/pop art made of legos, in an exhibition, with drunken lego wander around the gallery. Although not new, Art Craziest Nation ran at the Walker Art Gallery in 2005-2006 - by The Little Artists (John Cake and Darren Neave)... and i just found it on my latest lego addiction, Brothers Brick. Above are some of my favorites ~ Dali's Lobster Phone ~ and Warhol's Money. Few other fun ones below...

Oh. Mi. Bod.

ombmain.jpg
One last one for the lonelier or more playful Valentine's Day people... OhMiBod turned up on .org a week or so ago, and we were intrigued. And conceptually its really pretty brilliant ~ basically its a vibrator that takes audio input and vibrates to the rhythm. For all your concert going kids, you know that feeling of standing right next to the sub? Now imagine taking that vibration you feel and concentrating it into this device... and aiming that wherever you please.

So two days before Valentine's, this box shows up containing the OhMiBod, the pink garter, the 'softskin sleeve', and a t-shirt. (unboxing images below) They've got some nice clean branding and packaging ~ and even provide itunes' playlists for songs that work especially well.

Munky King Party

mkmain.jpg
Chinese New Year AND Valentine's Day right around the corner... stopped by the Munky King 3rd Anniversary and CNY party in Chinatown~ and welcoming in the year of the pig, they even had limited edition trading card sized glicee prints by Luke Chueh, Thomas Han, and Amanda Visell. But what really caught my eye was the PlasticGod Buddha... love the hands. (also found a video of it on youtube below!). Adorably cute store in the middle of one of the chinatown plazas which are really getting far more hipster filled relative to the old school chinese restaurants and stores i remember as a kid. Lots of pics below to give you a feel for the space...

Manuella's Elephant

manuella.jpg
Manuella's elephants and bunnies (also ducks and dogs exist).... brain child of Merav Flam, graduate of Bezalel Academy for Art and Design Jerusalem... and i'm smitten not only by these creatures, but also by the motivation behind the line... "With children in mind, her unique designs reflect her own longing for childhood without digital and electronic toys... 'Manuella' - is reminiscent of the mechanical system that was used a long time ago to operate dolls, musical boxes, and toys." Now if that doesn't hit you somewhere in your laptop toting, cell phone attached, wii loving being... i give up, go buy your kid an Ugly Doll.

But i have this habit of always shopping for kids toys (some of which admittedly i end up buying myself) ~ and having a few products in mind for all of those last minute baby showers that keep popping up, and to find the perfect gift is hard, but it will be hard to go wrong showing up with one of these Manuella Elephants.

iRobot Create

irobotcreatemain.jpg
No it doesn't vacuum, unless you program it to do so. But this one goes on the list of launches i read about before i got to CES, and was still impressed enough by it that i needed to post it after playing with it.

iRobot Create. I was quite a fan of the give your hamster wheels ~ as in it runs in its ball, and that drives the Create... and the robotic arms are pretty fun too. In a nutshell, the folks that brought you the roomba, unleashed a streamlined programmable version, basically the ideal starting point for future engineers, programmers, robotics geniuses everywhere...

AND not a bad deal for $99! (use coupon code 'createces' to save 30$ off the usual 129$) ~ and for normal roombas, 20% off with code 'ces222' in the iRobot Store.

ReadyMech

readymech.jpg
If there's one thing i learned this christmas, it's that you cannot leave RUGenius alone with a printer and internet access all alone in oxford tending to her lab. After the amazing cardboy calendar, she proceeded to find lots of other "print, cut, + build" toys on the internet and filled the lab with them (and my inbox with fun pics of them). So this one is for her.

FWIS has two amazing series of DIY toys over at ReadyMech.com - so get printing!

Lelo Valentine

lelovalentines.jpg
With the holidays behind us now, venturing into 2007 we're already faced with Valentine's Day?!? So if you remember Swedish Lelo's pleasure objects, and also their infamous design house, jeans, etc company Acne that is making its way to the states lately... you'll be excited to see their latest special edition NEA Black Pearl Valentine. "In collaboration with multi-talented designer Jesper Kouthoofd – one of the founders of Sweden’s creative powerhouse ACNE - LELO is proud to introduce the NEA Black Pearl Valentine. With LELO’s basic NEA acting as the canvas, Jesper Kouthoofd has chosen to graphically interpret the romanticized aesthetics of an archetypal sweet heart tattoo. The resulting artwork hints at an age of innocence - vintage 1950 – with undertones of a tender naivety reserved for the realm of pristine love. Bound to be the source of many a giggle and plenty of joy is the word ‘love’, naughtily located on the tip of the pleasure point and handwritten in pure lipstick on a mirror-style."

So for anyone who needs to plan ahead, these will be available until Valentine's Day... and the Lelo NEA is quite the cute, gorgeously packaged, little vibrator. See previous hands on review here.
