Toy Sharks

Toy Sharks

My buddy Julian sent this in, total love at first sight for me (the toy, not Julian although I’m sure he’s swell too). Jaws was of course, a massive pop culture phenomenon the likes of which we rarely see.

The greatest thing to toy makers is, you can’t copyright a shark! So even though there were plenty of officially licensed Jaws toys, there was oodles of fun knock offs, like Big Mouth here.

Pretty sure that’s a dime store rendition of Hooper, Brody and Quint on that beach. Love them!
