Who doesn't need something to help them relax? I surely know I do! If you're like me, after a long day of work, you probably come home and crash. Well, artist Yury Gitman has designed My Beating Heart. It's a heart-shaped pillow - made from several different materials - that has a heartbeat inside. Look for a review in the next few weeks...we'll let you know how it works!

Look for Toy2R to drop Jeff Soto's Terrarium Keeper - 8-inch Qee Gumivore Egg. This 8-inch Qee is limited to only 500 pieces. Look for this figure to launch in February of this year.
TARGET HAS RETIRED!
...or rather, gone on a 1000 year long vacation. The regular size Target is the first Uglydoll to head out on this 1000 year long lunch break. His latest variations, know as Red eye Target and big tooth Target, have shipped and all production on Target has ended to make room for 4 all new characters shipping in 2006. Fear not! Target still appears in Little Uglys form. Uh, for now.
Red Tooth Wedgehead is real!
50 different stores in the USA will each be getting 4 of the 200 red tooth Wedgehead Uglydolls.
Look for this cherry fanged trouble maker to hit around the last few days of January.
But which 50 stores? Not even the shop owners know!
Not far behind comes the first few pieces from the top secret, all new Ice-Bat Collection
and other all new Uglydoll characters for 2006. Most new uglys will be
kept secret through Toy Fair, with releases starting a few weeks after.
All new Little Uglys? They LIVE! We can't wait!
Ecko, the folks who brought us the Flava Flav and Biz Markie alarm clocks, are set to introduce the 3rd character in their Legends alarm clock line. The latest talking alarm clock is of former 3rd Bass member - MC Serch. The clock is available in 2 versions - the red version has 8 alarm phases, while the more limited (500 piece) black version has two extra phases. And when I say "phase", I mean different lines that the alarm wakes you up with.
Creature Co-op is the creative cooperation between Rachel Chow, Jason Carpenter, and their friends and family. Creature Co-op was started in 2004 as a hobby to create cute yet dark plush friends with strong personalities. Some of the creatures are very dumb and bump into things a lot. Some of them are crazy. Some are dumb and crazy, but very, very sweet. They all want to be your friend so you can take naps, eat snacks, and cause mischief together.
All Creature Co-op products are proudly handmade in the USA. The fabrics are all 100% polyester. They believe in using fabrics to their utmost potential to bring you the most huggable and well-made products possible. They use use polar fleece, fake fur, and synthetic felt. The stuffing is all new 100% polyester fiber. The eyes consist of plastic buttons.
Here are some photo's of an enormous 30-inch tall Kozik Smoking Bunny - from Medicom and Frank Kozik. There will be 100 of these huge plushies out there. And look for them to retail in the $400 area. (How do they ship something like this?!?!) The only question I have is - Where's the bunny's butthole?!
