Meet Colin from the Monster Factory! {Review}

By Thursday, May 3, 2012 0 No tags Permalink 0

I knew moving back to Bellingham would bring new adventures. But little did I know that I was going to find a little fella on my backyard. See, yesterday was dry (as dry as the Northwest can ever get without the sun) so the boys and I decided to play cars on the dirt because, what boy doesn’t like playing with dirt?! I was walking along the fence trying to spot our squirrel friends and that’s when I found him.



I snapped a quick photo and moved on to my doings still wondering what had just happened. Later on I was to find him again…and, must I add, he is quite photogenic!


He introduced himself. His name is Colin and he calls Monster Factory his home. Apparently he was so into thinking about what his future has in store for him that once he came back to earth he realized he was far away from home.

The Monster Factory is a Toronto toy brand run by Adam Dunn, Rhya Tamasauskas, and Bliss Man. Combining their backgrounds in film, art, and fashion, the creators have developed a strong sense of collaboration that affects every aspect of their process from storytelling to product design. Their efforts have produced countless monster characters who, despite their appearances, are just like you and me.

After Colin showed me where he comes from I realized that his Monster Factory family is full of love and that enjoy living surrounded by all their monsters. I am glad they are not the stereotyped monsters we all hear about. You know, the hide-under-your-bed-and-scare-you-to-death monsters but quite-cute-and-friendly monsters (not that Colin would appreciate to be called ‘cute’, he is a teenager nonetheless, and you just can’t call a teenage boys cute).

Colin also shared that he likes video games and to space out while thinking about his future (which brought him all the way to the northwest, remember?). He is a silly one. Which makes him a perfect fit for our family!


J & Colin

So, for the time being, Colin will be staying with us. He even made friends with mister J who was very concerned with Colin’s butt being covered in dirt. Friends care.

To meet Colin and all of his monster friends head on over to Monster Factory. Maybe you’ll find the perfect monster for you, your family, and/or someone you love!
