I am very happy to say JEMTOY is at FOE Store & Gallery in Northampton Massachusettes. On the toy shelf you can find a Wishbone Gomper, a Tentacle Gomper, Slithgarn, and several G.E.A.C. Anti-Consumer Products. If you are in the Northampton area, please visit FOE and ask to see the JEMTOYs!
New for all you Kaiju In A Bottle lovers, it’s Kaijina the Bug Girl in sweet and sexy fluorescent colors! Packaged in a recycled vitamin bottle with a bunch of silly stuff printed right on the label. Kaijina is ready to do her best to save the planet, but how much can a three inch tall plastic bug girl do? At least she tries. These toys are a very limited run, I don’t have many bottles.
JEMTOY will be part of Super Cooper’s STOP IT! Art show, 12th birthday party, and benefit for GLIDE and CHIME to raise awareness to Stop Bullying. Saturday 6PM-10PM September 10, 2011. Munky King 7308 Melrose Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90046.

I wanted to come up with a form of Public Art that wasn’t a crime or vandalism to anyone’s property. I wanted a device that would create its own story through interaction between complete strangers. I came up with the idea of Little Lost JEM TOYs. I created a bunch of plastic robot toys, and I leave them in interesting places for others to find. Printed on the back is this website address. People can contact me above after finding the Lost Toy. All I want is photos of the robot as he travels the planet. It’s fun to see how he gets on in his new home, photos of his travels, his new friends. A lot can happen to a little lost toy all alone in the world. Each person adds to his story as a step in his journey. When you have reached the end together, and it is time to part ways, you can always leave him some place for someone else to find.
Podlings are the beginning, the end, and all life in between. A little womb, home sweet home, and a little tomb. The wise Podling lives snug inside the Pod and has many secrets. The whole thing fits into your hand for you to ponder. Once in a while I will post a Podling for sale on my big cartel store. Check it early and often, as these little fellas go fast.
