Oh Baby!


Okay, so I know these are supposed to be for children, but I want one. Bad. This adorable little "ugly bat" comes from a site called Bright October that carries the "Ugly Doll" line and some of the cutest toys I've ever seen.

According to the site, "Ice Bat, comes from an Ice Cave and loves hiding inside Ice Chests. Everything he touches turns to Ice...yet profoundly he warms your heart. Ice Bat thinks you are cool and he wants to chill with you. He wants to hang out with you...or just hang upside-down, if that's OK with you! Ice Bat is there for you when you feel like you may be losing your cool, or feeling like a fool."

You see, I'm about to be an aunt again, so I've been perusing a lot of children's sites, looking for unique toys, clothes, and gifts for newborns. And you know what? Newborns don't really care about handmade organic tiny sweaters, artisan hand-felted knitted toys, and customized embroidered onesies! I mean, they just cry, eat, and poop for like the first year or so. All the cute toys, clothes, and accessories are really to satisfy the whims of parents, grandparents, and aunts with too much time and money to spend, like me.

Which is why I think I should have this carrot pencil case for Easter:


Now, if only they made those hand-felted sweaters in my size...
