LOVE these stories!
The other day one of my Facebook friends sent me this really great article about Jay Z. It was about how people (including people like me) can be critical of celebrities if we don’t see them getting publicly involved in certain causes. But many celebrities, like Jay Z, are quietly donating, or putting kids through college and we just never hear about it. I love hearing about people who are secretly helping others out, with no chance of being fully acknowledged. But the layaway angel stories ALWAYS get me! An anonymous giver went to a Bellingham, Massachusetts branch of Toys ‘R’ Us and paid off $20,000 worth of layaway items. Click inside for more!
Now that you’ve watched the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens at least 1,000 times, how about you watch it again in LEGO form? An industrious fan has recreated the new Star Wars teaser scene by scene with LEGO building blocks and, as you might guess, it’s pretty damn brilliant. Please enjoy.

Earlier today we learned that The Smiths (and Nine Inch Nails and others) have been nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — which is really great news for fans of The Smiths and Morrissey (like me). Last night, I was happy to find my mailbox stuffed with a parcel that I have been anxiously awaiting for a few weeks now. I ordered a Knitted Moz doll to help raise money for an animal rescue charity and because, well, I wanted a knitted Morrissey doll to add to my collection. He got lost in the mail and I was afraid he’d be deported back to the UK but the US postal service rerouted him to my new address and at last, he is home. More »

Yes, of course she does
Baby North West enjoyed a busy week last week, what with her appearance at Paris Fashion Week and, erm, her apparent getting forgotten by her mother inside a Parisian hotel, but today we have a cute little update about North‘s little life. North‘s aunt Khloe shared a photo on her official Instagram profile alerting the world to the fact that little Nori plays with a set of dolls that look like her parents. Yes, folks, North has her very own Kanye West doll … as well as a doll that look like her mother AND a doll that looks like her! Let’s forget the teeny, tiny bit of narcissism here and look at how cute these dolls look like below. More »
Everything old is new again
Netflix has announced that they are going into production of a new animated series based on the ’80s toy-line the Popples … which is kinda cool and totally random. There have been many ’80s TV shows/toy lines that have been rebooted for this new generation but bringing back the Popples seems so out of left field to me. Popples, as you may recall, were stuffed animals that could be folded up into fluffy balls and they already had their own animated cartoon back in the mid-80s. I guess Netflix believes the time is right for Popples to make a comeback. Click below to see what the new Popples will look like and find out when the new series will debut on Netflix. More »

Lucky lil 25 Cent
Yesterday we saw photos of baby North West carrying around a $1,400 YSL purse but today we learn that she isn’t the only baby baller rollin’ around Hollywood these days. 50 Cent gave his 2-year old son Sire his very own Mercedes ML450 SUV for his birthday. Granted, the kid’s Mercedes is a miniaturized version of the real thing but something tells me that the price tag of this lavish toy is pretty steep. Click below to see the sweet whip that Fitty bought for his son and try not to be insanely jealous of a 2-year old. More »

Guardians of the Galaxy opens in theaters today and as I blogged earlier, it’s a movie that you MUST SEE as soon as humanly possible. In order to try and inspire you to see this movie as quickly as possible, I present to you video of the Guardians trailer made completely out of LEGOs. It’s like The LEGO Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy has sex and birthed a truly adorable baby. Click above to watch and love.
Including Fiona Goode!
This September, Funko will release a set of Pop Vinyl dolls of some of the characters of the American Horror Story series including characters from season 1 and season 3 (apparently, AHS: Asylum season 2 didn’t get any love). Click thru the gallery to see the dolls that are on the way. Supreme queen Fiona Goode is also getting a doll but the promo image of her doll hasn’t been released yet. I think I need the Rubber Man from season 1, how about you? The Myrtle Snow character from AHS: Coven is the cutest tho. I love!!

In between loads of laundry and intermittent packing, I managed to finish binge-watching Sons of Anarchy season 6. About a week ago, I started watching the first season of SoA and it’s taken me a few days to get thru all 6 seasons but I finally finished the series (thus far) last night and man, am I exhausted. For years my friends have been telling me how good this show is and now I’m a true believer. Sons of Anarchy is such a compelling, entertaining and wholly engrossing series, I cannot believe it’s taken me this long to jump on board. With the 7th and final season debuting later this year, I wanted to see what all the fuss is about … and now I know. Having watched all 6 seasons of SoA, I have some thoughts on the show that I’d like to share below. More »
Do you wanna buy a snowman?
In an effort by the Funko toy company to take possession of all of my money, we learn today that a line of pop vinyl dolls based on characters from Frozen are on the way. This year already we’ve learned that Funko is releasing pop vinyl dolls of Buffy the Vampire Slayer characters and Hannibal characters. Now we can add a collection of Frozen characters to the mix. Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Sven and Olaf … there’re all here and, if you can believe it, they’re even CUTER in pop vinyl form. More »
