I’m sure some of you out there have seen these Libbey glasses, or maybe you had them in your house growing up. I was one of the unfortunate ones who didn’t have these in my house growing up! We drank out of Archie jelly glasses, but that’s another story for another time.

I scored these a few years ago down at the thrift store for a buck apiece. They’re 7″ tall, I suppose they’re iced tea glasses but they’d also be perfect for the “jungle juice” of your choice.

There are some different animals out there & some day I will collect ’em all!

    Love this set. It’s classic and timeless and ever popular. I had one of the giraffes and one of the elephants once. Do you know what other animals there are beyond the ones you have here?

    I also drank out of an Archie jelly glass and still have some of those around.

    (The AWMOK Jungle Animal Petting Zoo is a scenic attraction whose cages are currently being filled to coincide with the release of the upcoming Pomplamoose with Allee Willis “Jungle Animal” VideoSong and online music game and contest. Jungle tamer, AWMOK creator, curator and charming hostess, Allee Willis, me, will be steadily leading jungle animals to their cages over the next 1-2 months or so as you bring them here until the song is released. If ever there ever was a category that was primed to be kitschified it’s that of “Jungle Animal” as all the stripes, spots and fur have been inspiration for designers since the beginning of time. I thank you all in advance for placing your jungle pets in such an illustrious cage as The Allee Willis Museum of Kitsch. Keep them coming!)
