Island of Misfit Toys
December 24, 2009
The HiLo elves have been busy, busy, busy. In addition to the wonderful books and stories featured previously in our gift shop, we also offer a selection of toys. And it doesn’t matter whether you’ve been bad or good – we’re beyond all that!
HiLo Cootie Catcher
The must-have lo-fi high-concept technology! Useful for settling those playground arguments. Also suitable for scrying.
