I honestly can’t tell if these little collectibles are adorable or creepy or both. They look like multiracial puppies with identity crises. I can’t help but be bizarrely intrigued. What’s good with the pseudo-cop in the background? Why is there a monkey with a machete embroidered on his jacket? Any guesses?
