Give A Monster A Home This Christmas


*please note: I wrote this a few weeks ago, and I haven’t had time to re-check the links- forgive me if any of the monsters mentioned here have already shipped off to new homes. *


It’s amazing what you can find on Etsy. I was looking under “Everything Else”/”weird” this morning, and I came across the Timid Monsters. These wee folk come from TrishCzech’s shop, Trupinys, and all are looking for adventure in foreign lands.

Someone is obviously having WAY too much fun with these guys- I spent a good part of this morning reading and laughing over the descrpitions posted with the monsters, like this one for Susy:

Susy sometimes acts like the mother of the Timid Monsters. Often she can be found making roast beef and sardine sandwiches with the crusts cut off, sewing buttons to socks, and making the beds with all the blankets and sheets tucked under the mattresses. She dislikes lime jello, sticky floors at movie theatres, and medication adverts on the telly.

She would be glad to see someplace new! Ask about international shipping!

Or Theodore:

Theodore’s main concern in life is his thinning hair. He is too proud to simply cover it with a hat, yet hates to catch people staring at the last few strands he has. Theodore likes to watch the clouds and imagine they are they are spaceships arranging themselves into one final battle.

Theodore is also interested in combustible engines, peanuts and international shipping; ask!

Have a look through the selection; as of today there are 53 monsters available. With a price range of about $2.50- $3.00 each, it doesn’t cost a lot to give one a home with yourself or a loved one, and I’m sure they wouldn’t mind spending a night in a Christmas stocking… or just go check out the pictures and descriptions, ’cause they’re too funny.

It looks like the monsters are shipped out of New Jersey; contact the sellerto ask about delivery charges outside the States.
