Appendixes should never get this big, but we wanted to make one big enough to cuddle. Here's a sneak peek at the prototype for our new plush appendix, brought to you by popular demand! I guess many of you know people with appendicitis or folks who have had appendectomies. Also, oddly enough, we have had frequent requests for a plushie thyroid, so that little fellow is in the works as well, see below. We should release these sometime in Fall 2011 so stay tuned for these oh-so-soft body parts!
It must have been a slow news day because somehow I ended up on the local news as the poster girl for -- of all things -- examining one's scrotum for testicular cancer. Very weird, I know. It was a fun and surreal experience and I did get to fondle our testicle plush sample live on the air and anchor Mekahlo Medina wore a testicle pin on his lapel in honor of Testicular Cancer Awareness Week! In other testicular news, we just put the Grab Your Gonads artwork up on the site, it's free to download and print out yourself, and we have a limited number of laminated cards for sale as well!
