Child’s Own Studio is possibly the coolest concept I have ever seen! Seeing these toys will make you want to immediately go out and have kids, impatiently wait for them grow to an age when you can encourage them to scribble their wildest ideas straight from their imagination, just so you can send their drawings away to get them turned in to reality at Child’s Own Studio. And oh yeah, the kids will probably love it too! Check out some of their bestest creations below.
I quote lots of unusual facts to my friends (much to their annoyance), and I often end up having to find books, articles, internet videos to back up my claims. I have found very little use for my fact collections until now, however interesting blog posts may be the outlet for my obsessions. One of the subjects I am obsessed with is dogs, their domestication, intelligence, and their interaction with humans. The following is a clip from a British documentary “The Secret Life of the Dog”, presenting an Austrian Border Collie with some amazing abilities. ‘Betsy’ can distinguish objects by name, has a vocabulary of over 340 words, and most amazingly of all, can demonstrate abstract thinking by relating physical symbols, such as scale models, to represent a larger object. I have a soft spot for Border Collies, and German Shepherds, after being around them both a lot when I was a kid, so this dog really captures my interest. Contact me for many more ‘interesting’ dog facts.
