Roller the Reindeer

roller the reindeer

We’ve seen him in the Bossy Bear picture books by David Horvath. Now he’s three dimensional!

He’s Bossy Bear’s good pal. Trained in the North Pole but doesn’t want to pull the sleigh for Santa. His dream is to move to LA to become a skateboard champion!

Restaurant Guide

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

Just what I need: a restaurant guide!

ugly guide3

I love to eat and Uglydolls!

Hmm…that sounds kinda wrong…I mean I don’t eat Uglydolls. XD

Bring this very useful guide with you anywhere and everywhere. This will definitely change your life.

Food fight, anyone? Babo’s already aiming a cookie at you.

Chilly Chilly Ice-bat

Sunday, June 21st, 2009

I just got this really fun book. It doesn’t look like a picture book at first since it doesn’t have a title at the front or at the spine, it more looks like a journal.

chilly chilly icebat

"It’s summer in the Uglyverse, and Wage and Babo’s air conditioner has broken down, so they head to Ox and Wedgehead’s Air Conditioner Emporium, where the only cooling mechanism they can afford is an old fashioned ice-box. They bring it home, and soon realize they are in for more of a stew than they bargained for when they find little Ice-Bat living inside! Since everything he touches turns to ice, Wage and Babo’s apartment cools off in no time.But when word gets out, greedy Ox and Wedgehead can’t believe they sold Ice-Bat for only five dollars. They decide they want him for the Air Conditioner Emporium."

The story is simple yet fun. The illustrations are really funny and you’ll see how some of the Uglydolls live their lives.

Ugly Is Still In!

Sunday, April 5th, 2009

Geeez…I haven’t posted here lately. It doesn’t mean that I totally abandoned my Uglydolls fandom. I have just been pretty busy lately. I still buy Uglydolls and other Horvath-related stuff even if I’m busy! Hehe.

Let’s see what I got so far…

  • Menta Ice-bats (Both blue and white eyes that was released last 2007 at the first Deharavath. Yey! Been jumping up and down with these. I’m glad I waited and didn’t pay flipper price. XD)
  • Uglydolls Postcard Set
  • Little Uglys Babo in Purple (Also wanted a Babo’s Bird to match it but it was out of stock.)
  • Uglydoll Kaiju Babo with cookie shop (Solid Blue and In the Dark versions. I already have these, but the local store had them on super sale. LOL!*)
  • Uglydoll Kaiju Ice-bat (Clear Glitter version. My third one!* O_o Will probably have it customized.)
  • Flatwoods Monster (Fire-type version. I want to complete all 13 versions. XD Oh no…my shelf space!)
  • Grass Nut Bear Qee
  • Signed and doodled (by David Horvath) Bossy Bear book
  • God Noupa
  • Little Bony plush
  • Toothy Turtle (Yellow GID and Standard version)
  • Super Puncher

Hmm…I still lack a lot of stuff. @_@ Oh well, will just wait when the price is right.

*LOL! What’s the deal in buying the same thing over and over again? XD Some collectors have a rule to always buy in duplicate or even triplicate or even more. — One to open. One to keep. One to show-off. One to customize. The list could go on. Hehe.

New Bossy Bear colors!

just like bossy bear

Got this pic from UGLYBLOG. Those colors actually remind me of the Choco and Minty colors. I wonder why Bossy Bear have other colors? I have yet to read the new book…JUST LIKE BOSSY BEAR…Yes, I believe the truth is in that book! (insert spooky sound here)

*sigh* So many great events in New York and I couldn’t attend a single one. I wasn’t able to get any goodies from the shows…no goodies from flippers as well. I hope there will be an allocation for international customers next time. :(

Thought so!

A second Bossy Bear book with the Toothy Turtle! Wow! That Turtle has become really popular. He also has a figure that will soon be released. XD

Anyway, we get to see once again the adventures and misadventures of the "dynamic duo." The Pretty Ugly world just keeps getting better and better. :D
