antique look toys to enchant you

How great is this? A huge collection of photos of battered, threadbare, sorry-looking old stuffed toys, from the Mad Mad Crafter on Flickr. (Via WAWAYA).

These are just a few of my favourites.

I have a particular fondness for toys that look deranged and/or angry. I actually own the world's angriest looking stuffed toy, Humphrey, a motheaten squashed up hippopotamus that my brother & I used to fight over. I'll post a picture of him one day, in all his furious glory. Or should that be glorious fury?


  1. They are superb, anything that looks mental is fine by me.

  2. It seems to me that angry or insane is the proper state of being for a stuffed animal. Those are great. The cats remind me of Bill the Cat from Bloom County.

  3. Man...these would be fantastic to use as a avatar. I like the crazy-ass bear that's looking up. He's hilarious.

    Can I steal him?

  4. Well, they're not actually my pictures - you should really have a word with the mad mad crafter. Or you could just steal them. (I won't tell).

  5. Done and done. I think it looks fantastic.

    Please tell me you're making more zombie crafts. The world is ready (again).
