“Learn real art!” (and some vocabulary-this type of printmaking, with a collage, is called “collography”) reads the package of this totally fabulous art kit. Fashion yourself a kind of “Shepard Fairey of your mom’s fridge” with Eye Can Art Printmaking-once you make your collage, use the inks and roller to reprint it over and over again. Hang them everywhere, or give them to friends who can hoard them in hopes that you will one day become famous! It’s your collography, man. Do with it what you like.
The people at Jellycat probably all hold PhDs in “totally adorable stuff.” It’s an important skill, and one they have a firm grasp of-we’re talking iron-clad fist here. I’ll even freely admit that certain Jellycats get an extra squeeze before I put them on the shelf. Who doesn’t dream of snuggling an orange Aardvark? Look at his tummy! And his floppy arms! And those little ears! Okay, I’ll stop. You get the point.
My sister and I used to fight over who got to push the cart at the grocery store (and who got to push the button in the elevator, and who got to eat the little box of Fruit Loops that came in the cereal variety pack, and who had or had not already been holding our poor pet hamster, Guy, for much too long) all the time. This perfect miniature version has all the mystique of the real thing; there’s even a little seat in which your Cordy Aardvark could sit. Also, parents, it’s pretty easy to assemble. Pick up a Melissa & Doug Fridge Food and Pantry Products and you’ve practically got your own Stop & Shop.
