This “Golden Girls” Doll House Is Everything I’ve Ever Wanted

Yesterday, Julie sent me a link to this scale model of the house from “The Golden Girls,” I just immediately started crying with joy. It cost $175, but for that level of detail and the number of hours I would spend making my Dorothy paper doll shake her head at my Rose and Blanche paper dolls in the living room, and then serving tiny slices of cheesecake at the kitchen table while my Sophia doll told a funny story about her childhood in Sicily, it seemed like a total steal. Today, it’s sold out, and I’m crying for a different reason. See a couple more photos of this amazingly detailed masterpiece after the jump! [Etsy] Keep reading »

11 Toys That Scared The Crap Out Of Us As Kids

As far as I’m concerned, the ’80s toy Teddy Ruxpin was already a bit of a creepster. A strange combo man/bear with perpetually outstretched arms, Ruxpin was at turns needy and difficult, with the vocal intonations of a serial killer.

Apparently I’m not the only one who thinks so. Portland, Oregon, artist Sean Hathaway hacked into the Teddy Ruxpin computer system and created deviously modified bears. Hathaway replaced the Ruxpin vocal box with an array of creepy alternatives, all having mental breakdowns. The effect is chilling and confirms our deepest fears about Ruxpin. He’s a maniac.

Above, check out 10 more toys that we find totally creepy, bizarre and kid-inappropriate. And check out Hathaways T,E.D. project after the jump!

Sorry, but my productivity just went to zero because I’m going to spend the rest of the afternoon pressing the tiny David Hasselhoff button on my new favorite website, The ’90s Button. Click on the Hasselhoff icon, and a fresh ’90s video will get served up directly to you. So far, I’ve watched vids from Fat Boy Slim (“Funk Soul Brother”), Ini Kemoze (“Here Comes the Hotstepper!”) and, like, five Take That cuts. It just hit me with “Runaway Train” by Soul Asylum. This thing goes deep. Anyway, it’s been nice knowing you all, but this is my new life now. [The '90s Button]

Uncle Jesse Is Getting His “Full House” Band Back Together

This Friday is a big day for early-’90s nostalgia buffs, “Full House” fans, and John Stamos fangirls (and fanboys!), because Uncle Jesse’s fictional band, Jesse and the Rippers, is making a comeback. Stamos hinted at the news by posting a video on Instagram of him and the guys singing the “Full House” theme song. “Never thought I’d be singing THIS song,” he wrote. It was soon confirmed that the band would be appearing on Friday’s episode of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” No word yet on whether they will be accompanied by Bob Saget and/or an Olsen Twin, but hey, we can dream.
