I found this in the dollar store a few years ago and couldn’t resist. I swear it was packaged exactly in this way, no staging from me at all! An acquaintance of mine also saw this in a dollar store, so I know there had to be more than a few of these in circulation…

The warning label states that it’s not for children under the age of 3. No kidding!

A bear, a rhino, a forbidden love. All this for only a dollar, too.

    My vote is that that that’s the way the manufacturer packed them in the bag. And if they balanced the rhino on the bear and didn’t consider the fact that they should have made the bag narrower to prevent mating that just ups it up on the kitsch scale. I’m always fascinated when the product itself isn’t anything special but then some kind of dumb decision on the packaging turns it into perfection.

    (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!)
