I Heart Guts San Diego Comic Con

In super exciting news, the guts will be soaking up the San Diego sun for the 9th year in a row for Comic Con! We love this con because it’s always a super fun chance for us to meet our customers and of course, extreme people-watching. We’ll be bringing our keychains, pins, stickers, tote bags and of course our plush-- the new Penis and Gold Tooth included!


San Diego Comic Con is Thursday, July 18 to Sunday, July 21. Our booth is in a different spot this year-- #4419 in the Exhibitor hall. Be sure to stop by and say hey!

nycc-2013-iheartgutsNew York Comic Con 2013 was a fantastic blur of sights, sounds and non-stop action, we had a blast! A few of our favorite sights we'd like to share, above: the Nobody Knows I'm Menstruating tee by Oof Industries; these two gents came to Comic Con looking for fun, but found their lost thyroid and gallbladder, respectively; Phil Barbato's adorable baby eating our hearts out; Hunter S. Thompson and lawyer on the move with our liver; the toy panel happened again, this time with the marvelous Tara McPherson, wonderful Steff Bomb, Kidrobot's Galen McKamy and Kidrobot alum Nitin Bhargava, and this awesome 12-year-old Jacob who makes his own vinyl toys (special thanks Lisa Lyons of Toy Tokyo for moderating and to Happy Worker for organizing!); and amazing costumes everywhere, my personal fave was Wonder Wobear.guts-bladder-nycc As a woman, the toughest part about NYCC is getting yourself to the bathroom. As you can see from our bladder photo above, the line for the women's toilet is looooong, and the men's room line is nonexistent, so it didn't take long for us ladies at the I Heart Guts booth to bum rush the men's room so we could get back to our booth in a timely fashion. Thanks, fellas, for welcoming us into the inner sanctum of manliness! We left the seats up for ya.
Popularity contests are not our favorite thing, however, you can't win anything if you don't have the guts to ask, so if you happen to have a few minutes to spare in front of your computer, and you feel the Guts have touched your life in some small way, please vote for I Heart Guts as Fan Favorite for the Designer Toy Awards 2012. You have to log in, and write something nice and even upload a picture... I'm telling you, it's not easy. Here are the steps: register/login, go to Profile>MyEntries>AddEntry; there's a drop down menu where you can choose the Fan Favorite category. As nerdy underdogs, we are up against so many awesomer-than-us toys, but we would surely appreciate your time and nomination! Entries close June 15th and they will announce the winners mid-July, may the best toys win!
Ever wanted to learn how to make your own custom plush toys? Well don't miss our panel, coming to WonderCon next week!

Come and check out this fantastic panel featuring fab folks from DKE Toys, Mr. Toast, Munky King, Evil Ice Cream, Happy Worker, Hey Soupface and I Heart Guts. At the lovely Anaheim Convention Center.
