Gary Baseman Toys.

Gary Baseman's "Dunces"

Gary Baseman is a Pervasive Artist, painter, TV/Movie Producer, Toy Designer and Humorist. His toys and paintings are highly collectible, not always so easy to come by and definitely Most Excellent. Shown here is a small sampling of some of his vinyl toys. I especially love his "Dunces".

His "Dunces" toy series is a group of under-achieving pets. Limited to 500 units each, Dunces are not only obedience school dropouts, but also disobedient little works of art. Baseman suggests that they should be sent to the corner to ""think about what they've done"", but you'll command them to ""stay!"" with your most prized collectibles."
