Scott Heffernan, co-founder of this blog, has a really cool full-time job. What does he do, you ask? He designs and makes toys. Scott recently stated for The Seattle Times that working for Archie McPhee's is his dream job. (read Twisted Toys from Twisted Minds + Behind the Scenes at Accoutrements). Here are some of the products Scott has created or had a hand in creating. (Merry Krampus Sweater, Magical Unicorn Mask, Abraham Lincoln Bandages, Top Hat Espresso Cup & Saucer)
He and his son, Cash, have also been featured on a number of products and in some photo shoots. (Emergency Inflatable Toast, Giant Glow-in-the-Dark Googly Eyes, Inflatable Beard of Bees, Inflatable Tentacle Arm)
If you have a toy idea that's been kicking around in your head since you were a kid, it's probably already been done by Archie McPhee's. So, if you live in or near Seattle, or are visiting, and haven't been to Archie's, stop in. It's a magical place.
