Vintage Valentines Cards!

Vintage Valentines!

This year I finally remembered to do something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time before it was too late. For a while I’ve been hoarding unopened Valentine’s Day card boxes from the 80s and 90s, with the intention of just giving them out to people. For some reason I always forget to get it going before it’s too late, but this year I am on top of it. I ordered a bunch of new Valentine’s and have been preparing for a massive Vintage Valentines Giveaway!

It’s not a contest or anything, I just want to send you Valentines. I am pretty obsessed with vintage stuff and I get a kick out of seeing Valentines cards from when I was younger, and I figured that a lot of you would too. Who doesn’t remember decorating your cereal box and getting bombarded with cards in elementary school? I remember saving the most awesome cards in each box for my best friends and crushes.

Stickygram + Top Hat Sasquatch Christmas Toy Photo Contest!

Posted 7 months ago by Stuff

Stickygram

I love Stickygram, and I have ordered a few magnet sheets of my Instagram shots over the last couple years. It’s really easy to connect your IG account, select your photos, and get some awesome magnets in the mail. The fine folks at Stickygram are teaming up with Top Hat Sasquatch for a little Instagram contest, and three lucky winners will get a sheet of magnets (9 individual magnets).

I thought it would be fun to have a little Christmas-themed toy photo contest. All you have to do is post a Christmas-themed photo of some toys, tag @TopHatSasquatch and @Stickygram, and then use the hashtag #StickygramTHS. You’ve got until Monday, December 16th to get your photo posted, and then I’ll pick three winners.

You could recreate a scene from your favorite Christmas movie using toys, turn some old toys into ornaments like I did a few years ago, or anything else you can think of. Be creative!

You can only enter once, so focus on making one awesome photo instead of a bunch, and we’ll pick the winners based on which ones are our favorites! Good luck!

 

All I Want for Christmas is This Sasquatch Ornament

Xmas Sasquatch

I posted a sasquatch Christmas ornament last year but didn’t get to snag one because they sold out quickly. Well, as I was putting together the Top Hat Sasquatch Christmas Store, I found this ‘Holiday Yeti Ornament’ and it is even better than the first one. Seriously, look at it! Give it a bubble pipe and it could pass for our mascot.

Oh, and did I mention there is now a Top Hat Sasquatch Christmas Store? It’s an embedded Amazon store full of products we think are cool, and if you buy things from there we get a small kickback that will go towards paying for booze toys our server.

Let’s Help Kickstart a ‘Cool and Collected’ Magazine

Cool and Collected

Well, this is awesome. Brian Adams of Cool and Collected has been planning a really-for-real magazine project and just launched a Kickstarter campaign to get it off the ground. Brian is an excellent graphic designer and obviously knows how to lay out a magazine. Look at those comps, they look gorgeous!

The magazine will cover collectors and their collections. Brian has a knack for finding people with awesome collections, and is also the head hauncho of The League of Extraordinary Bloggers, so he shouldn’t have a problem finding a steady stream of contributors. I think the idea of a magazine for collectors funded and created by collectors sounds great, and I can’t wait to read it. Here’s the Kickstarter video:

A New TMNT Fan Club? Yes Please

Posted 9 months ago by Stuff

TMNT Fan Club

One of my big regrets in life is not joining the original TMNT Fan Club back in the day. This was the club that used Pizza Points as currency and got you some sweet swag for joining.

Well, I can stop crying because Nickelodeon has relaunched their TMNT Master Foot vs. Ninja thing that I didn’t really understand as the new TMNT Fan Club. You may not get a fancy swag bag for joining, but earning points through the system gets you chances to win cool prizes, so count me in.

One of the current prizes is pretty amazing too. Remember the Bebop & Rocksteady classic figures coming out soon? You could win the actual sample figures for those by earning enough points. I was going to say that I’ll probably never earn enough points to win anything, but then I noticed that Instagram integration is coming soon and I can earn points for participating in TMNT photo challenges and using the #TMNT hashtag. I practically do that every day now, so bring it on!

I just wish they’d bring back pizza points.

Join the TMNT Fan Club!
