We've been getting in a lot more art toys lately. Mostly the ones that are created by low brow/pop and comic artists.
When confronted with such things, people often ask,"But what do you do with it?"
Think of them as tiny affordable everyday art. What do you do with a painting or a sculpture? It doesn't do anything. You just look at it, collect it, enjoy it, love it. So wait, it does do something. They bring the happy.
