Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Sep 19, 2012

Ahoy, matey! As afficionados of pirate paraphernalia we’re happy to report that today, September 19th, is the 10th anniversary of International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Blimey!

Visit the official Talk Like a Pirate Day website to brush-up on all the pertinent pirate lingo and get to work on expertly rolling your rrrrrr’s. Savvy?

Then grab your favorite tricorn hat, put on your Deluxe Pirate Eye Patch, perhaps even an Inflatable Tentacle Arm, and grab a fistful of Pirate Bandages (in case you or your fellow buccaneers cut yourselves on a cutlass or run into the mizzenmast) and have a rip-roaring, swashbuckling day. Yarrrr!

Horse Head Mask sightings

Sep 14, 2012

We love spotting our Horse Head Mask being used and enjoyed in the most unexpected places. We always suspected that it could be useful in any number of situations, but our customers continually demonstrate that there is truly no limit to the possible applications.

People have incorporated the Horse Head Mask into wedding photos:

It has been part of marine animal shows:

Apparently it even makes for comfortable reading on planes:

It takes special skill to race while wearing a Horse Head Mask:

Even dogs enjoy wearing them:


This is Maddie the famous traveling Coonhound

And most recently, we spotted it being worn in this awesome and incredibly strange Japanese video:

Stay tuned for more amazing sightings of the Creepy Horse Mask!




Balloon Bibo

Sep 7, 2012

This has got to be one of most unusual surprises we’ve ever received:

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.
