The Gooberry by Attaboy

Gooberrytiny_thingy

We've been following Attaboy's Gooberry since way back in 2005. New York Toy Fair was when I first got my hands on the "Sweet Talking Gooberry" plush. (Anyone else now have that ELO song stuck in their head?)

Well, fast forward to 2009 and the Gooberry is ready to drop.  Measuring 12.5" tall, the Gooberry squeaks in pain when you squeeze her pinchers, and cowers in fear from your every snuggle. Truly an interactive experience, the Gooberry is the first designer plush to feature a pull-string sound box and squeakers!

Goolarger


Each Gooberry has been freshly picked from a secret Gooberry Patch before ripening just for you! Like a newborn’s skull, their soft skin has yet to be fully formed, so a Gooberry is very impressionable and extra-sensitive to your each and every touch!

Please, please, DO NOT attempt to eat a Goobery, as they taste like strawberry whipped crème. DO NOT pull a Gooberry’s string, as each pull, although wholly satisfying to you, brings the Gooberry that much closer to a most painful death. 


The first 45 talking Gooberries will be available exclusively at Atta's "A Touch of Evil" art show on June 13th at LA's POV Evolving Gallery. A second batch is available via pre-order starting today through Silver Sprocket and will be sent in July. And a small amount will then be available at the Hi-Fructose booth at SDCC and then at select retailers.

Mark Ryden and NTF’s YHWH

SYMPATHYVOL11

Hi Fructose and Brian McCarty dropped a bombshell on us. But it's a good kind of bombshell. Long Gone John and his Necessaries Toy Foundation are back (had they ever left?) and previewing their upcoming Mark Ryden piece - YHWH. Based on Ryden's painting of the same name, this amazing figure is bound to be one of our personal favorites.

Yhwhpaint


While the pictured - pink - vinyl will be the standard edition, there are plans for two special edition versions (black - 80 pieces and white - 80 pieces). Look for these to be released in the summer of 2009. And for more information about the figure and the photoshoot, check out the Hi-Fructose blog.
