In praise of the Pigeon Mask

We created a new blog to celebrate our Pigeon Mask and the awesome people who choose to wear it, making the world a more fun and interesting place.

Cats love it!

We’d like to share a few recent sightings of one of our favorite products, the Inflatable Unicorn Horn for Cats. Cat’s love it!

The fun began when Redditor Alterx shared this fantastic photo:

Which prompted Redditor k41y17 to share a photo of her own cat clearly enjoying his/her own fabulous Inflatable Unicorn Horn:

A short while later Redditor iCareMuch shared a photo of their cat wearing the horn too:

Can you believe just how much these cats are enjoying themselves?
But wait, there’s more!

As if that trio of unicorn kitty photos wasn’t great enough, we then spotted this awesome sticker in the Hawthorne District of Portland, OR:

Do not provoke the neon unicorn kitty. He’s busy being awesome.

(Unfortunately we don’t know the name of the artist responsible for making this fantastic piece of adhesive street art, but we love it all the same.)

So there you have it. Uni-cats are popping up all over the place and we couldn’t be happier about it. Stay tuned for future sightings of the Inflatable Unicorn Horn for Cats.

Googly-eyed shenanigans at ECCC

Jenny Sparks and her husband Lars made brilliant use of a pair of our Giant Googly Eyes here in Seattle last weekend at the Emerald City Comicon.

Googly Eye Galactus

Googly Eye Batman

They mounted the Giant Googly Eyes on a stick and asked cosplayers to pose for photos with them. As you can see the results are nothing short of awesome.

Googly Eye Harley Quinn

Googly Eye Klingon

Even our own underpants-wearing squirrel got in on the action:

Believe it or not, the photos you see here are just the tip of the awesome iceberg.

Balloon Bibo

This has got to be one of most unusual surprises we’ve ever received at the Archie McPhee store:

These awesome customers brought us a great big version of our beloved Bibo character made entirely out of balloons. This might just be the best balloon animal ever.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: our customers rule.

Creepers Collection

Amateur Gourmet has a great post about a guy named Craig who, as you can see in the picture above, had an awesome collection of what he called “Creepers” when he was a kid. He came back to Archie McPhee as an adult and even though he didn’t specifically find any new Creepers for his collection, he had a great time.

We just had to share that beautiful picture.

Zac Tours Seattle

Here’s what you need to know.

1. Zac is awesome.

2. He toured Seattle.

3. The video of his tour was edited to a Jurassic 5 song.

4. He underwent an Archie McPhee chickenification process.

After watching the video, you may return to your normal life exactly 35% happier than you were before you watched it.

Keenan is Back

Archie McPhee Catalog Cover

It was the late 1990s, the X-Files was on TV and our catalog was still in black and white. It was then that Keenan the Wonderkid wrote a report about us for school. We have no idea what class it was for or what grade he got, but we decided to use quotes from his paper in a catalog. Get my catch?

Now, more than a decade later, Keenan stopped back in the store to tell us what he’s been up to. He’s an artist and all around wonderadult!

Here’s how he looks now:

Keenan all grown up!

As he promised in his report:

Keenan the Wonderkid

And he kept his promise!
