They need your help to customise over 200 blank Popobe Bears - the customs will be exhibited in Melbourne at ArtBoy Gallery in October and auctioned online through BuddyBid's integrated Facebook auction app.
All the funds from this will go to the Victorian AIDS Council to help them continue delivering the vital support and services they offer.

TOY TO THE WORLD is back for 2017 but it needs all our help to make it happen!
This amazingly creative & engaging art project helps raise much needed funds for the Victorian AIDS Council but it can only happen if we all can spare a few bucks from each of us to make it work.
TTTW's Pozible Campaign has just been launched so head over to Toy To The World Project Facebook page and follow the links for more deets. Plus there's a pretty sweet vid of their previous opening night party we held here a few years back. .
By popular request, I'm sharing a full picture of my LEGO minifig shelf. The lighting isn't great in that part of the room so forgive the graininess.
Here are the answers to the questions I've received: There are currently 381 minifigures on this shelf. I think I have room for about 90 more at the most. We also have at least 100 minifigures downstairs that are living in the sets they were designed for. There are about 20 minifigures that live in the loose box of LEGO bricks that come out when small friends come to visit. This is my collection and I've been working on it for about 10 years. I am happy to shareit with my kids and future grandchildren.
I usually put together the minifigures. Alex is mostly in charge of the bigger sets. We definitely work together though. I build the Christmas sets because he doesn't enjoy those as much. My Mom even put together
a few sets for me recently.
Each time we take a vacation, I select a few minifigs to come along for photoshoots. The shelf is custom made by a talented artisan at ayrowstudios.com and the answer
to the final question should already be obvious... yes, I have just a little OCD!
P.S.If you like pictures of minifigs and other toys, you might enjoy the blog that Alex and I run at toytotheworld.com and you can follow us on facebook at Toy to the World
This is what we call a good time! He's finishing up the Millennium Falcon. I'm putting together last year's Santa's Workshop. We gotta get done with our older projects so we can buy the newer stuff! #legoaddictproblems
Played a fun game tonight called Qwixx. Easy to learn, but still challenging enough to make it interesting and different each time. We always love @gamewright games. They are the best! #gamewright#toytotheworld
You know you've got the most amazing friends ever when they send you a Happy Birthday Harry Potter package that arrived within hours of his actual birthday! Thank you so much @regardingsteph + kids for sending us such a fun and thoughtful package! 🦁🐍⚡️#harrypotter#harrypotterbirthday#toytotheworld
Our Star Wars Episode IV review is up on our blog (link in profile). I loved what Alex said about Princess Leia so much that I had to order a #minifig of her. My husband also gave me a new appreciation for the droids of the film like #c3po - this has been such a fun project!
