Remember that third grade field trip when everyone walked through the quiet halls of the local museum or art center, clutching the hand of your travel buddy, and staring at all of the paintings in awe? There was so much to see but never touch! The founders of Made in Museum remember that trip. They remembered the urge to touch the art so well, they created the art cube, a cube that has a different famous painting on each side. There are cubes for every genre of art imaginable and all available for very low prices. The best part however is that a portion of the proceeds from each sale is used to keep museum doors open. More kids can go on that tell-tale field trip and be amazed at how something so mundane as a brush and paint can create something so incredibly beautiful.
On December 7th 2011, ToastPop published an article titled “Thirst-Quenching Fun: Creature Cups” which described a really cool piece of dishware. In that blog it was mentioned that a greater selection of these mugs would be available this year, and I am writing to inform you about two new creatures you can find in the Creature Cups: a crocodile and a lobster! They’re offered at the same price the older animalistic creations are worth- $14.99 pre-S&H. However, it is posted that the newer products, as well as the old ones, are sold out. Yet, if you pre-order the crocodile or lobster Creature Cups now, they will be shipped by early February.
Enjoy your heated beverages in an entirely new way with Creature Cups! Being hand-crafted and dishwasher-safe, they are a creative and convenient addition to your kitchen cupboards. Purchase one of your own at creaturecups.com.
Imagine you’re drinking a cup of coffee or hot chocolate. You glance down into the cup and see an otter or an octopus! Either you’re sipping from a Sea World aquarium, or you’re enjoying your drink from a creature cup. These animalistic creations are designed by Yumi, an artist based out of Brooklyn, New York. They’re sold online at Creaturecups.com. You get a selection of either the octopus or the otter cup, or you could get both. If you are a store owner (or if you know someone who is interested), you can order these to sell in your place of retail. Read the “info” page for contact info.
Creature Cups are hand-made, dishwasher-safe and cost about fifteen dollars before shipping and handling. If you’re looking to buy one in the near future, they are unfortunately sold out at the moment. Yumi claims that they’ll be restocked next year, and there will even be more to choose from! If you’re still interested in what’s offered now, you can pre-order them.
Creature Cups are a delightful gift for the hot-beverage consumer you know! They’ll make coffee breaks more interesting and surprise those unfamiliar with the “hidden creatures in your cup”!
Sometimes the older crowd misses the days when they were able to play with building blocks and get away with it. One company recognized that and decided to do something about it! We all used to love building crazy creations with blocks and wasting countless hours making intricate structures out of blocks to then just take it apart. Nanoblock is all about the building of smaller block creations only not to be taken apart afterwards but instead collected and displayed! Nanoblocks are the building blocks designed for those more skilled than the average child and more patient. These little blocks are really quite small and measure smaller than a coin. Patients and time is no doubt a factor required when building with Nanoblocks, but one that pays off in the end with an individual piece of collectable art!
It makes sense really, why spend time building something only to take it apart? You don’t have to with these tiny building blocks, in fact they come packaged to where you have enough blocks to build the specific design that you buy. It’s not hard to build with them, but it does take some time compared to throwing a few big toy blocks together. So if you fall into the category of those “too old” to play with blocks, then Nanoblock are most certainly for you! With plenty of designs to choose from and a continuously growing catalogue you are sure to be entertained with these little blocks for a big amount of time!
