Throwback to Amanda Visell’s Scaredy Labbit!

October 16, 2017

For today’s Throwback Thursday, we’re gonna kick it (semi) old school with Amanda Visell’s Scaredy Labbit.  This poor bunny is easily spooked by all sorts of things.  For me personally I’m terrified of heights, but only in weirdly specific situations.  I don’t do well with stairs that you can see through, you know the ones that don’t have the boards behind each step. Tall buildings also freak me out, but I’m totally ok with mountains, maybe because they’re like still being on firm ground technically.
     In honor of today’s subject, let’s take a look at some other phobias and their names that no one can pronounce:
Xanthophobia – fear of the color yellow
Nelophobia – fear of glass
Altophobia – fear of heights (hey, that’s the one I have)
Ophidiophobia – fear of snakes
And the best one of all is Allodoxaphobia which it the fear of opinions
    If you’re not suffering from that last one, you should listen to my opinion of how awesome this Labbit is and how it will enhance any place you put it.  Just not too close to the window, there’s a lot of scary stuff outside.

Q & A with Toy Designer One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj

Rejects Art Toy Figures by One-Eyed GirlQ & A with Toy Designer One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj on release of The Rejects - Dark Chocolate Edition on Kidrobot.com. "I’ve been paralyzed and in a wheelchair for almost 20 years and I spent so much of that time creating all this weird, emotional art to help deal with it. I got to a point where that got old and making these silly characters was way more therapeutic than trying to put my feelings into a painting. So now I make my little guys to make myself laugh or smile and hope that it does the same for others." -One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj
