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.

Form 6

Just in time for Valentine's Day ~ FORM 6 ~ the latest in designer vibrators from Jimmy Jane. Waterproof with cordless recharging (check out its handy dock below), a seamless coat of silicon, varying digital vibration modes, and engineered for sound isolation... but really, its got some gorgeously sleek curves.

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

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.
