Lucky dogs in gorgeous glasses

Lucky Dog Day Camp in Kalispell, MT recently held a birthday party and used our glasses in their photo booth.

Bailey and Bailee look fantastic in our Googly Eyes Glasses:

Moose is enchanting in Hypno Glasses:

Tank looks Marxian in our Disguise Glasses:

Doris is fantastically feline in our Cat Eye Glasses:

And Milo is animated in our Anime Glasses.

We sure hope we get invited to the party next time! We’ll bring the kibble.

See more cuteness here!

Archie McPhee in LEGO form

Wow! Spike Demarais (the 8 year old son of Kirk Demarais) was going through his Archie McPhee catalog and decided to make a few of the items using LEGOs:

While all the items are awesome (Spike’s LEGO version of the Party Mustache even bends!), we are especially impressed with the Dashboard Eyeball, Mr. Bacon and the Hot Dog Ear Buds.

He’s going to be an artist like his dad!

Horse Head Mask sighting

Proving once again that our Horse Head Mask can pop up just about anywhere, we recently spotted one in this funny video created by Russian videographer Michael Tivikoff, a.k.a. Mr. TVCow. Entitled “How Gamers Eat Their Food“, the video demonstrates how people who play different video games (or indeed the characters from those games) have wildly different (and silly) ways of eating.

But we think the best part is that the demonstrations are presented to a person wearing everyone’s favorite creepy Horse Head Mask, who listens attentively while munching on a leafy salad:

One chicken to measure them all

Joe J Thomas, voice actor and creator of the blog Joe’s Dump, recently proposed an awesome new system of measurement, The Rubber Chicken Standard. What with the Metric System failing to take off in the US and his opinion that the Imperial System isn’t very intuitive, Joe argues that it’s high time we all agreed on a new standard of measurement:

I’ve chosen the Archie McPhee Deluxe Rubber Chicken as a new standard of measurement. The reason is simple: every culture knows what a chicken is, and a rubber chicken is easier to use because it won’t spoil.

Rubber Chicken

One rubber chicken is the basic unit of measurement. (How many chickens tall are you?) But Joe goes on to propose the use of a “Kilo-Chicken” (kc) for measuring really large objects (It’s the size of 1,000 Rubber Chickens):

And the “Micro-Chicken” (uc) for measuring really tiny things:

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.

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.

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.

Unicorn at the Zoo

Jeff Wysaski of Pleated-Jeans has done something completely awesome with our Magical Unicorn Mask. He created a unicorn exhibit at the Los Angeles Zoo, complete with its own educational placard:

unicorn placard

Entitled “Unicorn at the Zoo,” this delightful video shows off Randy, the zoo’s newest and most magical resident.

“Say hello to the newest resident of the LA Zoo. He’s already a big crowd pleaser…”

Watching him look so longingly at the zebras, we’re wondering how Randy the Unicorn would react if other unicorns showed up to visit him at the LA Zoo.

Now we know why we’ve sometimes felt weirdly unsatisfied after an otherwise amazing day at the zoo. No unicorns!

They say dogs and their owners often look alike…

When our friend Linda Lombardi got her pug, Lilly, to pose in pug slippers, she took what ended up being one of the most stolen pictures on the internet:

When she recently got her hands on our new Pug Mask, she couldn’t stop herself from recreating her own famous photo:

As you can clearly see from the delightful family portrait below, both Rose and Lilly seem very accepting of their new pug/human hybrid owner:

It appears that our Pug Mask just received the official Pug Seal of Approval.

Magical Unicorn sighting in Germany

There’s even more than Oktoberfest going on in Germany right now. Actual unicorns are wandering around inside people’s homes. We just received this photographic evidence of a recent unicorn sighting in the home of Tim LaBenz. We agree with Tim that its clarity puts previous crytozoological sightings to shame:

German unicorn sighting

Tim explains: “Last night we were celebrating a birthday for our Archie McPhee-crazed 12 y.o.’s birthday. (Cade is the cool kid-o with the nail through his finger opening up his presents.) In the midst of the celebration we were able to capture this random unicorn sighting (but of better quality than other famous -yet grainy- sightings like Bigfoot or Loch Ness, you be the judge).”

In addition to the awesome sighting of a magical creature, this photo serves as further proof that Archie McPhee has the best customers ever. Thanks Tim!
