Aaargh! What do I get them for Christmas?

Aaargh! What do I get them for Christmas?

You know one of the biggest flaws in the Santa Clause Story? It’s not the flying reindeer. Nor is it him visiting 5500 children a second if he’s supposed to visit all the world’s children in one night. It isn’t even that he’ll have to eat 150 billion calories (which puts even my Christmas binge eating to shame). It’s how he’s ever supposed to select the right present for each and every child.

I mean, seriously. Every time I have to buy something for my family I end up tearing out clumps of hair. And there are only 15 of them, not 1.5 billion. How has the stress not killed him yet? Sometimes I feel like eating 150 billion calories just to deal with the Christmas shopping!

Are you struggling with the same problem? Then maybe I can help. I’ve got some ideas you might like. Now, I want you to imagine me doing jazz hands as I say this. You ready? Bobbleheads. Continue reading

6 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas For That Fun And Quirky Mom

“Maybe I should just get her something for the kitchen,” You mumble, even as you’re disgust by yourself for thinking it. She’s your mom, not your cook! She deserves more than some unimaginative pot or coffee maker. Besides, you already got her that toaster last year. At the same time, you muse, a new appliance is better than a card and some flowers, right?

Yeah, but not by much – and there isn’t much room in the attic for another gift she won’t use. Continue reading

Getting Married in 2017? Personalized Groomsmen Gifts for the Wedding Party

Wow, are weddings tough things to plan! If you’re going through that, then our hats off to you. We thought running Whoop Ass Enterprises was hard, but that doesn’t hold a candle to planning a wedding.

I mean, there is just so much that you’ve got to decide. There’s the cake, the floral decorations, the location, the wedding list, who sits where (for heaven’s sake, don’t put Aunty Liz next to Stew!) and, of course, all the gifts. Continue reading

15,000 misspelled bobbleheads!! Whoops!

Here’s a somewhat funny story about a recent Prince Fielder Bobblehead that the Texas Rangers did.

Most of the 15,000 Bobbleheads had “Medical Center Arilington” painted on them instead of “Medical Center Arlington”. I bet the sponsor was not too pleased! Most bobbleheads are made in China, and given that English is not the native language over there, quality control is key. Imagine getting 15,00 of them wrong!

We also make some of our bobbleheads in China and some in Mexico, so we spend lots of time making sure all the details are right. We did spend a year making them in the US in 2010, but the costs turned out to be too high (almost bankrupted us!). And we promise to spell it A-R-L-I-N-G-T-O-N, don’t worry!Prince Field Custom Bobblehead

Giant Bobblehead Theft!

I wrote a couple of weeks ago about the 6 giant custom bobbleheads that were commissioned in Detroit to recognize the city’s sports stars. Well, apparently, some disgruntled Redwings fans decided to behead the Jimmy Howard custom bobble head after the Redwings dropped out of the playoffs.

Unfortunately for the perpetrators, the Detroit area police were quick to find him and recover the missing giant head. I’m from Michigan, and all I have to say to Detroiters is, stop acting like a bunch of Philadelphia fans!
