- Toy Book Report - Study: Phthalates Can Affect Boys Play - "A new study by the University of Rochester found that young boys exposed to high levels of phthalates during their mother’s pregnancy may be less likely to play with male-typical toys such as trucks and toy guns. The study divided pregnant women in their 28th week into four groups by the concentration level of phthalate metabolites in their urine. Once children reached ages 3 to 6, researchers assessed their play behavior by asking parents to describe their favorite type of toys and play. Each child was then given a score reflecting masculine-typical play or feminine-typical play. Mothers in the highest concentration group were five times more likely to have a boy with a less-masculine score than mothers in the lowest concentration group. The study is published in the International Journal of Andrology."

NemO just sent over a great video of his custom "MUnny"sculpture, and some sketch paintings he did for the Wizard Sleeve Toys "Multiversal Group Artshow" going down at Art Basel in Florida this weekend. NemO says that he thought he would try something a little different in his painting styles with the portraits, these are more Abstract graffiti'ish in nature, and the custom Munny is truly a piece of "art", draw your own conclusion on this one folks :-) Hit up NemO's blog HERE, for all the up to date info, projects, and show that this master crafter is working on!
