Assorted Toys from Archie McPhee

My wife and I recently spent a few days in Seattle to celebrate two of our friends getting married, and, when in Seattle, you'd have to be crazy not to stop off at Archie McPhee, a store specializing in bizarre toys. We dropped less than thirteen dollars this time.

Jesus has glow-in-the-dark hands and was found in a bin labeled (if memory serves), "loose Jesuses". He ran me something like $1.95. The praying kids were either 50 or 30 cents a pop.

Speaking of pop, these are all action figure-scale beverages. Again, they ran us something like thirty or fifty cents each:

With the exception of the dog, that's all these animals ran us, too. I think the dog was $1.50, maybe $2.00:

Finally, here's a starfish, which cost us $.99:

In case the point of all this isn't immediately clear, IF YOU'RE EVER IN SEATTLE, STOP BY ARCHIE MCPHEE.
