Ducktopus was a hit with one of my readers who goes by the moniker Wyrmphreak and writes on her blog Demonals about her awesome stuffed creations. She not only loved my silly drawing of Ducktopus, but with a little nudging even accepted the challenge of MAKING A REAL TOY DUCKTOPUS!
Now I've drawn a great many things in my life, but never has one of them been made into a real toy. So I have been extremely excited as I've followed the progress of this project.
So imagine my utter joy when I opened up the mailbox today to find Ducktopus in the
Hahahhaa this is the coolest thing EVAR!
Ducktopus immediately found some familiar faces, who were a little less pleased to see him than he was to see them.
So he hung out with the freaks for a little while. But they were a little too weird for him, and that laughing dog made him nervous.
"I tawt I taw a Ducktopus. I did! I did taw a Ducktopus!"
Finally Ducktopus found some folks who accepted him for who he is on the inside.
It's good to have friends.
I can't thank Wyrmphreak aka Carrie enough for this awesome awesome toy. I seriously believe she could sell a million of them - maybe we need to start a business together! Ducktopus needs his own toyline, clothing, and TV show stat! :)
Halloween Countdown 2009 will live on forever in the form of a little stuffed octopus/duck hybrid.
Thanks again, Carrie. You rock!
