Blogs I Like
On paper, Fully Jointed Play Figures sounds like an incredibly dull idea. The author is (more or less) just buying toys for his son and taking photos of the experience. Why not just show is slides of your family vacation, dude?
Surprisingly, though, Fully Jointed Play Figures works. It's a blog that manages to do something that's almost impossible in geek circles: evoke an emotion other than rage. Seriously ... how can you not smile at the photo above?
The site also conveys why so many of us still love toys after all these years, and does so without stooping to pretension, cynicism or hostility. It's actually very genuine and sweet.
It might not be the edgiest blog on the planet, but there's nothing wrong with that. I say check it out!
