I could stare at this all day.

My studiomate Mans just launched the OTO Taco Truck. (You might have seen the Icecream truck from last year) I don’t know about you, but my son’s head will explode when he gets this for the holidays. Goes perfectly with his favorite book Dragons Love Tacos.

Team Tinybop has been hustling: They just launched their third app, illustrated by Tuesday Bassen, called Homes.
It allows you to explore four unique homes around the world, from NYC to Mongolia. Wander in, cook, and play. You can investigate the utilities but watch out for wires spark and tubs overflowing…
The best part, you’re totally allowed to make a mess! Or clean up, with help from a curious cat. What I love the most is that you can personalize each space with your photos and drawings; see yourself in mirrors.
I love the Human Body and Plants, but Homes is definitely my favorite Tinybop baby so far. Try it!
