Good/Weird Sh*t: Hybrids



I run into a lot of interesting items while I am trending for my job. I read a lot of websites and a lot of blogs which lead me in all sorts of directions, today I found The Runny Bunny over on Etsy. At first I was just completely captivated by her color choices of each piece, then I began to look closer and closer...

Why does that lady have a bunny head and why does that bird have a lady head?

Needless to say after figuring out what was what and that this work is only made from old hobby molds from the 70's I was hooked. So as a belated birthday gift to myself I bought my very own poodle hybrid: Arabella Dandelion Tweedie Sim II. I would like to collect most of them, mainly the ones posted, the other ones really are just kind of scary. And I am afraid if they ALL came together, they might plot my early death.

PS
The artist Robin VanValkenburgh goes to great lengths to keep shipping costs down and recycles all packing material. I love supporting anyone who is eco-friendly and even better she ships worldwide and will do custom orders to boot!
