Return of the horse-headed squirrel

You probably remember these amazing photos of a squirrel using our Horse Head Squirrel Feeder that we first shared a few weeks ago:

The photos were taken by the awesome Jim Zielinski, who just outdid himself by capturing video footage of a squirrel using the Horse Head Squirrel Feeder:

Well done Jim and thank you for sharing! We’ve already watched it ten times in a row and it’s still cracking us up.

Introducing the Crow Mask

Our new Crow Mask makes you look just like a crow or we’ll eat… well… crow. It’s perfect for dressing as a bad omen or eating roadkill without being judged. Find a creepy scarecrow and prove him wrong. If only Hitchcock had lived to see this.

This realistic, latex mask cries out for you to scare old people feeding stale bread to birds in the park. Find a comfy spot (do not attempt to perch on electrical wires), cock your head to one side, then another, and stare at people with your beady, enigmatic corvid eyes.

Buy one here.

Eyebombing in Madrid

We love seeing the fun people have using our Googly Eyes. Nuria Pérez Paredes recently filmed her two daughters going around Madrid on their first Eyebombing mission using googly eyes to give urban surfaces and inanimate objects the appearance of being living creatures.

It’s further proof that a pair of googly eyes can come in handy just about anywhere.

Don’t be caught unprepared when you find the perfect eyebombing spot in your own town.

For that special couple: Unicorn and Horse Wedding Cake Topper

Spring is finally starting to creep into the air, which means wedding season is also approaching. Our new Horse and Unicorn Wedding Cake Topper is perfect for that “special” couple that wants their wedding to be a wee bit different. This 6-1/4″ tall polystone cake topper features our Magical Unicorn Mask and Creepy Horse Mask on a bride and groom. (The bride and/or groom may be blushing, but it’s hard to tell because of the masks.)

Max and Whitney Losee shared a picture of their awesome wedding cake with us:

Does anyone have a reason why these two should not be married? Neigh!

[Special thanks to Max and Whitney Losee for letting us use a picture of their beautiful cake!]

Check out that horse-headed squirrel

Yesterday we introduced the Horse Head Squirrel Feeder and today, thanks to intrepid photographer Jim Zielinski, we’ve got our very first action shots of the feeder in use by a real live squirrel. The squirrel is enjoying a tasty snack while looking utterly ridiculous. It’s perfect:

Don’t let your neighborhood squirrels be left out.

Introducing the Horse Head Squirrel Feeder

It turns out that the Horse Mask is even funnier when it’s on a squirrel! This hanging vinyl 6-1/2″ x 10″ squirrel feeder makes it appear as if any squirrel that eats from it is wearing a Horse Mask.

Put some peanut butter on the shelf inside this squirrel feeder and as the squirrel eats it, he’ll be wearing the horse mask. Feeds and humiliates squirrels at the same time! You’ll laugh every morning as you drink your coffee while staring out the window into your backyard.

Finger Monster sighting

We love spotting our products in the wild and there’s something particularly cool about seeing depictions of them in people’s artwork. So we were delighted to spot one of our Deluxe Finger Monsters in this wonderful painting by Midwestern artist Ken Keirns:

Entitled Social Network, it was part of a solo exhibition of Keirns’ artwork, “Deja Vu, Selected works from Ken Keirns”, which recently took place at the Madelife gallery in Boulder, CO.

Happy Birthday President Lincoln!

Today, February 12th, 2014, is Abraham Lincoln’s 205th birthday.
Happy birthday Abe! You don’t look a day over 56:

We made this stackable Lincoln Salt and Pepper Shaker Set as an homage to our favorite president, Abraham Lincoln:

If Honest Abe were here today, we think he’d want to emancipate the flavor in our bland food. And now he can, thanks to a 3″ tall ceramic likeness of his head that you can fill with salt and a 2-1/2″ tall ceramic top hat for pepper.

The year of the pretty lady horse

Another timely arrival for 2014, the Year of the Horse, our new Lady Horse Mask adds a drop of femininity to the original Horse Mask.

With her subtle makeup and long, luscious lashes, we think she’s equal parts creepy and pretty!

As you can see in the picture above, the gentleman suitor horse is wearing our new Horse Hooves!
