Posted by on April 6th, 2016, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS, SNAPSHOTS

The Low Fashion of Child Couture (5 Comics)

Posted by on March 29th, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

Saying fashion changes when you have kids is like saying it’s gotten a bit breezy when you’re caught in a Force-12 hurricane. Matching outfit? In our parent-haze, we just hope we’re wearing pants when we leave the house. The percentage of time we wear pajamas certainly skyrockets, and our former kidless selves would never have […]

Horror Movies for Toddlers (Bad Product Idea #19)

Posted by on March 25th, 2016, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS, SNAPSHOTS

Just think about it. Kids films box-office spectacularly, for the young and old alike. And horror films also sell like hot cakes dripping with strawberry blood. Hmmmmm… Hollywood is clearly missing a huge opportunity here: horror movies for toddlers! Opening up an even younger youth demographic, and, since they can’t walk, this would include their […]

Superhero Tears

Posted by on March 10th, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

The gorgeous illustration style of this “comic” by Jon Laing caught my eye the other day. Reading the first frame, it was clear the weight of the story was heavier than a lighthearted joke. I felt sympathy for a bullied child and empathy for the defensive fantasies that come of idolizing one’s dad. My eyes […]

13 Hilariously Confusing Knockoff Star Wars Toys

Posted by on March 2nd, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

I may not be the most knowledgeable Star Wars fan of all time, but I know what’s what. I know the difference between a Wookiee and scruffy nerfherder. And I covet nothing more than Star Wars toys. So it was hilariously ridiculous when I found these knockoff toys around the internet. I mean, just look […]
