It’s a sinister day in the neighborhood

Mirror Universe Mr. Rogers doesn’t think you’re special, hates that you’re his neighbor and loves our Krampus Sweater. He does still wear tennis shoes because they’re so darn comfortable.

This sweater is a limited edition for the 2013 holiday season. Get your own here.

Halloween at Archie McPhee

Creepy Doll Head Salt & Pepper Shakers

Creepy Doll Head Salt and Pepper Shakers are a good thing to bring out when it’s time for your guests to leave. When you look at old dolls, it’s sometimes hard to imagine that they were made for children to enjoy. They definitely fall into that uncanny valley where they’re just close enough to looking real that they make us uncomfortable.

Perfect for the haunted Halloween season, these undeniably creepy 3″ ceramic doll heads will silently season your food and then stare at you while you sleep. That is, assuming you’re able to fall asleep with them in the room.

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:

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!

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!

Let’s go watch the Meat Parade

Archie McPhee is happy to announce we’re releasing our very first single, Meat Parade!

Watch the teaser music video here:

While this video features only a portion of the song, it shows the full meat parade in action. The limited edition vinyl single looks like a beautifully marbled ham steak. Only one thousand produced!

We’ve only got eyes for Richard Simmons

Redditor mrpauloldham posted this picture of an unnamed and awesome friend of his exercising with Richard Simmons while he eats her ponytail. Of course, we couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw Richard’s outfit was made of Emergency Googly Eyes

We know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but we’re sure you’ll see eye to eye with us on this one. That’s no eyesore, it’s one eye-catchingly awesome outfit. Richard Simmons is truly the king of exerceyes. (We apologize for this paragraph. We couldn’t resist.)

Are you brave enough to eat from the Shark Bowl?

Just when you thought it was safe to eat a bowl of Cap’n Crunch…

With the Shark Bowl you can relive the thrills of Shark Week every day of the year. This porcelain Shark Bowl looks like every other bowl from a distance, but as you approach, you’ll see that it has an unstoppable killing machine poking its head out of that salsa. Use it for cereal, ice cream or even soup, but don’t take your eyes off that ferocious shark for a second.

Neighborhood Watch

neighborhood watch

A pair of our Giant Googly Eyes have been installed in front of a home in Snohomish County, Washington. They make a great addition to the town’s Neighborhood Watch group. Skulking scoundrels are sure to think twice about getting up to no good on a street where even the shrubbery is watching them.

Introducing Nihilist Toothpaste

No Flavor. No Color. Nothing.

We don’t believe in dental hygiene.

Nihilism is a philosophy defined by what it doesn’t believe. At its most extreme, Nihilists don’t believe in anything. So, when we decided to make toothpaste for nihilists, we decided that it shouldn’t taste like anything because they don’t believe in flavor. Brushing your teeth with Nihilist Toothpaste is really brushing them with a big dollop of reality. This is a perfect present for your favorite philosopher, a moody teenager or a fan of The Big Lebowski.

Nihilist Toothpaste – Toothpaste for those that believe in nothing.
