Little Golden Book Monday #127

Today's Little Golden Book is Bert's Hall of Great Inventions featuring Bert and Ernie and other Jim Henson Muppets including Franklin and Prairie Dawn. The book is originally from 1972 (this is an eleventh printing edition from 1981). I certainly remember this book from you childhood. I was always a big fan of Sesame Street and the Muppets, so I am sure I owned my own copy of this one at some point. I have scanned two of the pages from the book that I particularly like. The first is a great drawing of Bert and Ernie hanging out in the dark with their firefly friends. The second is a silly drawing of Bert whacking Ernie on the head with a fly swatter. I like that the fly is saying "Ha ha."

KISS Super Big Gup Cups

Just saw this today. I have not been collecting KISS merchandise for years now, but this looks cool! New KISS Big Gulp cups from 7-11. I guess its partly that they look cool, and partly that I have a nostalgia for the old 7-11 Slurpee cups that I used to collect as a kid. I'll have to stop by my local 7-11 this weekend to see if we have these in Canada so I can pick up my set. The last Gig Gulp cup I purchased was the really cool 3D Iron Man cups promoting the first Iron Man movie.
