Kickstarter: Pecanpals Woodys

CandyJames, an Australian design company, has launched a Kickstarter campaign that's looking to produce their Pecanpals Woodys designer toys. Designed in Australia and made from eco-friendly hevea wood, CandyJames has added a touch of fun to high-end design objects made to stand the test of time. These handmade wooden creations feature moveable joints, via magnets.

They will be available in three different versions: Natural Wood; Cotton Candy; Obsidian Black. The Natural Wood version is available at the $90.00 backer level, while the painted versions are at the $111.00 level. Of course, there are plenty of other backing

combinations available. This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Wednesday, October 17th 2018 at 6:00PM ET.

As I say with all Kickstarter projects I post about. Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back all Kickstarters with caution.

Samhain Cleanse Kit by Taylored Curiosities

Taylored Curiosities has announced a new handmade creation - the Samhain Cleanse Kit. There will only be 20 sets available to purchase. The signed and numbered sets will run £50.00 each (about $66.00). They're scheduled to begin shipping at the end of October 2018.

Samhain is one of the major festivals of the Wheel of the Year, for many Pagans the most important festival of all.

Each Samhain Cleanse kit contains the following:

  • Original, handmade resin figure.
  • Originally illustrated, handmade, miniature book of shadows (complete with cleanse rituals).
  • White feather.
  • Sage smudge stick (to cleanse you and your home).
  • Snowflake obsidian healing crystal (to cleanse you of negative energy).

PHUNNY Horror Plush – Pennywise and Chucky

Kidrobot has introduced (and released) a pair of new PHUNNY horror plush characters - from two iconic horror franchises.

Based on the film version (sorry Tim Curry fans) of Stephan King's film IT, you can buy your favorite nightmare in plush from Kidrobot to add some true terror to your collection with the IT Pennywise PHUNNY Plush (measures 8 inches tall).

Also, standing (or sitting) at approximately 6 inches tall, Kidrobot has crafted your favorite childhood nightmare into a PHUNNY. Inspired by the infamous killer doll, the Chucky PHUNNY Plush comes to life (although, hopefully not really) in this huggable form.

Both PHUNNY Horror Plush characters are available to purchase for $11.99 each.
