Uh oh, I did it again :( (more Urban Vinyl and Art Toys)
Follow-up to Designer Toys / Urban Vinyl / Art Toys are expensive and look cool from Andy's Dumb Ramblings
...I bought 3 more Monskeys
Apparently the red one loves nature and hates waste. The diver one loves diving and hates sharks. Personally I think he picked the wrong sport if he hates sharks.
I’ll try not to buy any more, 4 is enough methinks…
I also have a secret agenda here, I’m testing the effect a blog post has on google rankings. Trying to encourage my employer to interact with the internets a little more proactively. Though to be honest, I think it would be worthwhile even if it didn’t affect our rankings in any meaningful way.
I’m curious as to whether Warwick Blogs are still as powerful in Google as they used to be, I remember when I was the number one search result for Threats to Global Peace.
So here’s the rest of our Urban Vinyl

Designer Toys / Urban Vinyl / Art Toys are expensive and look cool
Hello, it’s me again.
Why am I posting here and not on my real site? Because I’m redeveloping it. And when it’s finally launched, you too will be able to see that it should never have taken as long as it has.
Anywho, in the last couple of years I’ve been slowly exposed to the scary world of Designer Toys / Urban Vinyl / Art Toys (whatever the hell you want to call them). No, I’m not talking about edgy urban music ‘records’. I’m talking about the odd craze where artists take a prefabricated vinyl (plastic) figure and art the shit out of them (yes, that is a technical term). Sometimes they’ll even design their own vinyl figure first, and sometimes they won’t even use vinyl, they’ll make plush toys. What a crazy world.
Anyway, I finally took the plunge and bought one of the cheapest vinyl figures I could find. It’s a “Monskey” and his name is “Teakia”. According the packaging he likes fire and hates noise. He also believes we all have psychic powers. In many ways he’s a lot like me.
Here’s a picture of him:
Unfortunately there’s also a boatload of almost identical monskeys with different designs, this is why I’m going to be very poor. Even more poor than I am thanks to living in London and earning a non-London wage.
Here’s a link to a whole bunch of other urban vinyl monskeys
There’s an unbelievable amount of urban vinyl, so it’s lucky I’m not one of those guys who gets hooked on collecting stuff. No wait, you’re the one who doesn’t get hooked, I’m the one who does… Unfortunately most of it costs a fortune. You can even get a 18 inch tall white monkey thing that you can doodle all over designer toys, art toys, and urban vinyl 18 inch Mega Munny at Forbidden Planet) ... seriously, who comes up with these ideas?
Also, it’s my birthday soon so buy me lots of nice things. Yes Mannion and Widge, I mean you.
