THE CRAWLAH APALALA
On sale on Saturday January 26th 2019 via the DHP Webshop, this is an official Apalala collaboration with the Crawlah Club.

This minty green opaque vinyl has green glitter embedded throughout. The colors used in the print actually mimic the toy while the sticker is just a wild colorway bonus. Apalala comes with a matching Jizo-Anarcho OMAKE for $130.00 each. Made in Japan. Not intended for children under 14 years old.
Tailored Curiosities has released Roux: The Snail Whisperer. A mixed media, handmade art doll full of personality, the piece measures 6.5 inches tall. Roux includes three snails - two are fixed to the doll and one is removable and can be held in her hands. You can currently pick one up via the above link for £50.00 (about $65.00).
Snail Whisperers are vital to the snail world. They help the snails to grow big and strong by whispering to them to avoid anything poisonous, anyone’s vegetable garden and any salt.
They whisper to the snails to tell them when it’s time to hibernate (to miss the deathly frost) and when it’s time to wake back up (and enjoy the spring sun).
They also whisper to the snails.... a sort of song. The human ear can’t hear it, but the snails can and they dance a wonderful rain dance, late in to the summer nights. It’s a marvellous sight to see if you ever get the chance.
