I had to have the Mr. Rogers Funko.
My daughter and I were visiting family in Everett, Washington. Famous for roller derby and its proximity to other things, Everett has become a mecca for collectors of Funko figurines. Soon after our arrival we were taken to see Funko's Everett themed wonderland.
While the plastic figures are mainly based around the popular characters of scifi, fantasy and adventure tv and movies ala Star Wars and the Marvel Confusing Universe, some are Funko originals based around invented lands like the Wetmore (a street in Everett) Wilderness or something like that. Anyways, lots of streets in Everett have Funko-made totems. Interesting, but maybe not useful to know.
I was interested to see Funko but after .3 of a second I had enough. I must resist plastic knick knackery for my home. My daughter fell in love with some really cute Star Wars tee-shirts, but man those Pops were not calling to me. Then I saw the Mr. Rogers one.
Now I have the Mr. Rogers one.
It is super cute and hey, Mr. Rogers! The eyes somehow work.
I did manage to make it all the way home, and a week away from the place before I gave in and ordered one.

I hope Funko Lion Force Voltron is the only Voltron Funko makes! I seriously can not remember the name of a single member of the Voltron Vehicle Force. That show was trash. Funko Pop 6″ Animation: Voltron-Voltron Collectible Figure via Amazon

If the Captain Marvel opening credits didn’t tug your heartstrings enough, perhaps this marvelous Stan Lee Funko Pop will satisfy. The only autograph I ever asked a celebrity for was Stan Lee. “Excelsior, Jason! Stan Lee” is on a 3×5 card around here someplace. Funko POP!: Stan Lee via Amazon
Even if you feel like AirPods are worth the price tag, you’ve got to admit there’s a certain anxiety that comes with using them. What if I lose them? What if they get wet in the rain? Or drenched in sweat? Or fall into the drink you dropped them into? Shiny tech is great, but […]
With the quick-fix appeal of video games and their own cell phones, it can be tough to keep kids focused on supposedly “educational” toys. And while it may seem counter-intuitive to fight tech with more tech, we’re all in when it comes to the Toybox 3D Printer. We’re not sure if anyone had envisioned a […]
Whether you’re an artist, designer or just organizing a photo album, photo editing software is a must. And software designers know it: Platforms like Photoshop and Lightroom have a ton of helpful features, but you’ll pay for them in spades. Luckily, there’s some competition in the photo editing arena. Right now, Skylum’s Luminar software is […]
