Bounce and hum (two Dutch collages)


Last week, Jordan spotted some wonderful toys in the design exhibition at MoMA. She said they were right up my alley, and oh man, was I excited. They're called boezels and they seem amazing. Simultaneously creepy and soothing, these creatures are designed for "sensorial stimulation therapy" and come in several varieties, including a troubling doll-like fellow with a mirror for a face, a farting skunk, a primitive cow, a llama that spits perfume, and a strange, geometric bear named Tobbo. Needless to say, I am in love with the whole menagerie.
