Remember Barry the Beaver? Well making questionable vibrating vinyl isn't the only thing Jeremy Fish does. He's actually a very talented artist, often working with Upper Playground to produce urban wear, art prints and apparently pub glasses too. Much to the delight of his alcoholic fans, you can pick up Jeremy's Big Skull Pint Glass for 15 bucks from Design Public.
When I get asked to explain (validate) why I spend so much money on these vinyl toys, I say that they are upscale toys, designer toys, and like a lot of collectors say, they are "toys for adults, but not that kind of toy."

Meet Barry the Beaver. he's 5.25" of lovable vinyl, with a flexible rubber tail and he's just so happy to see you. Twist him on the stump (provided you installed the AA battery included) and watch how excited he gets. Created by the amazingly talented and semi-twisted Jeremy Fish, in conjunction with Superfishal and UpperPlayground, Barry was produced by Ningyoushi.com and is available in limited release for ~$45. Pick one up and bury your beaver today.

Oh Hai! I'm Nate and I live in the sometimes beautiful, always exciting, city of Buffalo, NY. I'm not too focused on this blog, but you'll probably end up reading something about Buffalo, my toy obsession, burly bears, club drama, Google Android, and some damn good music. This is my blog. Read it. Cheers.
