Her expressionistic portraiture is now blurring and stepping into her other world, the imaginary. Her fictional characters, a team of illustrative creatures, which are part of her canon, appear as headdresses for her portraiture subjects. Facial expressions continue to appear pensive, yet inviting us to wonder. Inukai’s pencil drawings continue in the same direction. ‘Marilla Blue and Orange’…

Never expecting anything in return, really just saying, "Thanks for the memories". Then, to his surprise, he received the autographed photo up above and this letter!

This game is for ages 2 and up. It helps kids learn about different body parts. Each card has part of the body on the card. What we did for Chelsea was mix up the cards and let her try to make different bodies with the parts available. We pointed to parts of the body and asked her what they are. She knows a lot of the parts of the body already.  The cards have numbers on them as well so when she is older…

Dad: “We went to Cabela’s to pick up some dove decoys before our hunting trip, and A decided to name the two dove decoys. They’re now Charlie and George, so I labeled them on the underside so we’ll know which is which. And they get tucked in at night, too. She also has an owl decoy, her favorite. And that’s not to mention her collection of stuffed animals, including Peppa Pig of course. And let’s see what else she has… there’s a… well, hell, all I can reckon…

    Many were once wild about the original Sindy doll. That would be back in 1963 when Pedigree Dolls and Toys created her. She was a best-selling toy in the UK at the end of the 60's. Throughout the end of the 20th century through to the beginning of the 21st, there were several manufacturers who tried to bring Sindy back to her glory days. Looking back now, the fashions and the accessories were wonderful for the day. She had everything! As a child, I would have loved this doll and all of the goodies. There is a tremendous amount of play value in what I see here.I've actually had a few pieces of…

Many had already seen the dolls photographed by the extremely talented Saron Wright in this month's DOLLS magazine. David Buttry, the line's designer (interviewed in the magazine), said they wanted to continue the Paris theme from this year's Tulabelle line but of course adjusted to the early 60s period. The dolls are available now at IT dealers and will be shipping in two weeks.Item # 84005Sunny…

    "Oh, My! It's So Late, Santa!" is a frazzled Munchkin Santa" who just can't believe what day it is and what time it is.

  • Cataloging What Makes Steiff's 1970's-era Playthings So Distinctive

    27 Sep 2014 | 11:11 am
    A picture is worth a thousand words! And this is especially true when it comes to Steiff, and their marvelous catalogs over the years. These great time-capsules really capture the essence of the brand from decade to decade - in terms of key styles, proportions, fabrics, and designs. When giving a talk on the history of Steiff and the company's product design evolution, Steiffgal often refers to the 1970's (in the most loving way) as the "ugly decade." By this, she means that for the most part, item designed in this time frame have a goofy, nontraditional look about them. Let's look at the…

    When you have kids, a dinner out in a time crunch doesn’t always have to be a not so healthy drive-thru option. Sometimes the thought of entering a nice sit-down restaurant with waitstaff service isn’t viable either because at least when my son is hungry, he’s totally happy and then all of a sudden he’s in major meltdown mode. Then you are screaming at each other to just find food, while your kid wants macaroni and cheese, but you’d like Chinese and your husband wants Indian food.

Within 15 minutes or so Gavin had the Batcave ready, with only a little bit of help. Gavin was enthralled with using the pulley, but  I myself  had my share of fun using the Batarang to knock…

    This old aircraft is a Stuka that has been on the bottom of the ocean for 60 plus years. It is amazing the condition this airplane is in considering how long it has been submerged. Nearly 70 years after it crashed into the Adriatic Sea, a rare German World War Two dive bomber has been discovered off the coast of Croatia . The National Conservation Institute says a well-preserved Stuka dive bomber was found lying on the seabed. As the Daily Mail reports, previously, two other Stuka bombers had been discovered, but they were in much worse condition. An institute official said, "The engine,…

My first model plane had strings attached to it but it did have a cox gas engine and flew very fast. Hopefully this ruling does not ruin the hobby for our kids!

    Drones have been in the news a lot lately in the US. And I don’t mean the large, lethal military drones that operate in war zones, but the small Phantoms, Parrots and similar quadcopters favored by many hobbyists and independent commercial photographers and videographers. Weighing a couple of pounds or less with a maximum speed measured in feet, these tiny flying machines – called model aircraft by many operators – have been defined as “aircraft” by the FAA most recently in an interpretive rule published June 25. Defining these small UAVs as aircraft makes them subject to many of…

The helicopters are part of the country's $1.7 billion (1 billion pounds) campaign to strengthen their military force. The new Chinook Mark 6, a helicopter that U.K. Secretary of Defence Philip Hammond calls "the battlefield workhorse of the RAF," will bring the British helicopter fleet to 60 — the largest in Europe. The RAF ordered 14 upgraded Chinook helicopters in 2011 — a time when the British were fighting in Afghanistan and there were calls for more heavy-lift…

    FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Darrell Abby carefully wipes down the fuselage of his Curtiss P-40 Warhawk for its first flight of the day. He checks the flaps, wiggles the rudder, pumps in gas and monitors the air pressure for the landing gear. Then he pulls on a gray heavy work glove before spinning the propeller to start the engine. While Abby's warbird has a wingspan of 86 inches — the real deal is 37 feet — the pre-flight checks he performs mimic those taken by a pilot before crawling into a cockpit. "We're very big on safety," said Abby, a 66-year-old retired Delta Air Lines pilot at a…

After playing with the kendama and seeing how much fun it is, we agreed. The kendama is a super fun traditional Japanese skill toy that closely resembles the classic ball and cup game. We spent a lot of time this year learning about the kendama and practicing tricks. We were amazed at just how much could be done with the kendama and are confident that this is something our users will love! So, we are building LearnKendama.com. Support Us on…

  • DIY Lava Lamps

    Elizabeth Skinner
    17 Oct 2014 | 12:47 pm
    We just participated in the Champlain Mini Maker Faire at Shelburne Farms in Vermont.  Are you familiar with the Maker Movement?  The Maker Movement celebrates a “do-it-yourself” (DIY) mindset – from arts and crafts to science and engineering.  There seems to be a focus on technology which is a great way to introduce kids to STEM or STEAM. (STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, arts, math.)       There were great robotics demonstrations but our decidedly low-tech DIY lava lamps were incredibly popular.  Even the robotics club high-schoolers…

    I’ve been talking about science toys and science experiments lately (see my posts on the Heron’s Fountain and Kaleidoscope) and wanted to share some tips on how to use the Tornado Tube.  This is about the least expensive science toy out there, it’s fun and you can use it to demonstrate a really important scientific principle.  The littlest ones will be amazed and older kids can use it as a launching pad to learn more about vortex action.  We’ve even had colleges use the Tornado Tube. It’s a great educational toy and it’s made in the USA! What the Tornado…

    What do kaleidoscopes have to do with Amish quilts? Plenty, I just learned.  I went to the Shelburne Museum (Shelburne, VT) yesterday and saw a great quilt exhibit, All Star Quilts: The John Wilmerding Collection that features Amish and Mennonite star-themed quilts dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The quilts featured the Star of Bethlehem design, one of the oldest and well known designs and one of the few to come from Europe to America (around 1855), according to quilting.com Here’s the surprising part The geometric designs were influenced by the symmetrical and…
  • Heron’s Fountain – Water Science Project for Kids

    Elizabeth Skinner
    15 Aug 2014 | 2:14 pm
    What’s a Heron’s Fountain? It dates back to ancient Greece and it’s a great water science project for kids.  Heron of Alexandria (ca 62 AD) was an inventor, mathematician and physicist who invented what looks like a magic trick.  It’s fun and an opportunity for kids to learn about gravity, air compression and vacuums.  A great end-of-summer project and, as we get ready to go back to school, a great science fair project. How does the Heron’s Fountain work? You know what gravity is, right?  You would think that water draining from a top bottle into a bottom…

  • Breaking Bad figures removed from Toys R Us

    23 Oct 2014 | 3:39 pm
    Toys R Us finally submits to an online petition to remove all of their Breaking Bad collectable dolls from their US stores. The petition, started by a Florida mom, accumulated over 9000 signatures. Which was apparently enough to result in the world’s most famous toy store removing the controversial figures. Many had complained that the genre of the Breaking Bad show – about a middle aged cancer patient taking up dealing crystal meth – made the inclusion of the shows merchandise at Toys R Us unsuitable, since it would be seen by children.

    In news coming out of the UK this week, it appears police officers were called out to deal with escaped crocodile which was spotted rummaging in gardens in Plymouth, UK. A startled resident from Plymouth spotted the croc, approximately 3 foot in length, starting at her with a menacing growl imprinted across its face. After a tense stand-off between neighbours and the reptile, police were called. Unbelievably, it was only after officers from the Devon & Cornwall constabulary arrived and threw water over the animal was it discovered it was not a crocodile after all, in fact it was a…
