The year of the undead horse

Just in time for 2014, the Year of the Horse, we’ve created an amazingly ghoulish zombie version of our original Horse Head Mask.

But wait, this awesome mask is even more than a zombified horse head with exposed brains, torn flesh and dangling eyeballs, it also glows in the dark!

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!

Caution: horses and unicorns at work

Here at Archie McPhee headquarters we’re currently having the floors redone with cork. It’s a pretty exciting development for the people who walk on those floors all the time, but the new flooring isn’t actually the best part of this project.

What’s really awesome is that members of the Floor Coverings International crew working on this job have been spotted wearing Horse Head Masks and Magical Unicorn Masks:

Here’s an industry secret: After a Unicorn has been through a room with a vacuum, each step you take on that floor releases the sweet scent of cotton candy!

This is a skilled and safety-conscious bunch of guys, so we aren’t going to claim that they’ve been wearing the masks the whole time, but they also clearly know how to win our hearts and make themselves stand out from the competition.

Doctor Who and the Emergency Bowtie

While watching the most recent and quite excellent episode of Doctor Who we couldn’t help but notice that the Doctor seems to shop at Archie McPhee

During the the bit where he chose his new clothes, he pulled out an Emergency Bowtie and then proceeded to save the Earth. How awesome is that?

We’re hoping he has some Emergency Googly Eyes in there as well. You know, for reasons.

Behold the Corgicorn

One of our awesome customers recently showed the staff of Archie McPhee that the Inflatable Unicorn Horn for Cats isn’t just for cats. It turns out that Corgis love them too!

In fact, according to this happy customer, his corgi specifically asked him for a unicorn horn after hearing about them at the park.

So now we know the word is out on the street: Inflatable Unicorn Horns for everyone!

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.
