One-Of-A-Kind Toys Based On Pop Culture Characters? Oh, Indeed.

Entertainment Editor


Mister Frothee sculpts one-of-a-kind toys as gifts, sometimes giving them to people involved in the television and movie projects the toy is based on. He says someone sent one of his Mad Men bobbleheads to Christina Hendricks and she wrote him a nice letter. He needs to spend the next few years just holding that letter up everywhere he goes like he’s Anthony Michael Hall with Molly Ringwald’s panties in Sixteen Candles.

Our favorite toys of his are in the slideshow below. Unfortunately, none of these are for sale, but that won’t stop us from throwing twenties at our screens and hoping something happens. (We also do that whenever Kate Upton’s Carl’s Jr ad is on the TV.)

“The Wire” wind-up toys, each 2.5″ tall and proportioned wider to fit a motor inside. He says he’s also making another set with Cedric Daniels, Jay Landsman, “Herc” Hauk, Lester Freamon, and Stringer Bell.
