From the Win Files: Squishable Android, Wookiee the Chew, TG App Magnets

It’s been awhile since I’ve made a Win Files post. I have amassed a collection of things that make you go squee. Here is a sampling.

First up is from my most treasured Internet gem, Squishable.com: The Squishable Android! In June, the lovely folks at Squishable.com auctioned one of these adorable guys for the Child’s Play Charity. Just when I thought I couldn’t love these guys any more, they go and do that. Maybe if I’m a very good girl, Santa will leave me one under the tree when they go on sale in December. (HINT HINT)

This second example of pure win comes from artist James Hance in the form of Wookie the Chew. I love love love the original, classic, timeless artwork from Winnie the Pooh by E.H. Shepard (and many times imitable stories by A.A. Milne). The way he has merged Star Wars with Winnie the Pooh tugs at my nerdy heartstrings making me ridiculously happy. Prints are available at the link provided. He also has t-shirts and released a book this past Wednesday, September 1. I’m pretty sure Santa will have to beat me to the punch for getting “Most Likely Lose It Again, Anyway” in t-shirt form. WANT!

Last, but not least, another example of win from the fine folks at Think Geek, App Magnets. As Motorola Droid user, and recently indoctrinated member of the Cult of Android, I can’t help but poke a little fun at my iPhone using brethren. As appears to be the theme of today’s Wins, the magnets are simply a-dork-able. As testament to their awesomeness, they are currently out of stock. Think Geek has long been a purveyor of fine nerdy goods and I enjoy recommending them to many to fulfill multiple and sundry nerd-ly needs.

      I’m very happy you have found a Squishable you want to call your own! I have a Squishable cow. Her name is Ping. She is lonely. . . needs an Android buddy. Obviouslies. ^_^ I do my very best to spread the joy of Squishables.
