Did you know taking care of your teeth impacts your overall health?

Studies show that poor dental hygiene is linked to heart disease and diabetes, as well as the dreaded gum disease. Even more reason to give more love to those pearly whites, and hug your dental hygienist this Dental Health Month!

After metaphorically banging my head against a wall for two weeks, I finally got this drawing done for the updated hangtag for our heart plushie. A heart-to-heart with my favorite cardiac nurse really helped -- I sent her a whiny text asking for help with this drawing and she wrote back, "Waiting for a 'fresh heart' to come out of OR right now." Thank you for the reality check, Sheila Rose!

The heart is amazing in so many ways! It's electrical! It's mechanical! It's awesome!

This Valentine's day, put your heart into it -- literally! Bonus: How many hearts can you count in this photo? View our entire Heart Collection including our heart plush!

17024639_60_eWell, this is fun -- Urban Outfitters has added a few guts to their online collectibles depot. Looks like the marketing department had some fun with the text for the heart: "He'll really take a beating for ya. Somehow adorable anatomical heart plush with an included little fun-fact-filled tag. Get PUMPED!" and the lung: "Take a deep breath and contemplate the cuteness of this plush set of lungs," and the liver, too: "Intoxicating little liver likes to keep it clean." (Wow, the liver is sold out! What'd they do, bundle it with a free bottle of Jack Daniels?) If you already own one of these plush guts and care to write a review (if you happen have to have an UO account), I'll be your best friend. Also awesome -- it seems they also bought stuff from two other California plush scenesters -- Lauren of Sweet Meats and Kerry and Darth of Evil Ice Cream. Woo hoo!
