There’s not really such a thing as a chubby bat. They have a crazy fast metabolism, allowing them to digest bananas, mangoes, and berries in about 20 minutes. Maybe that’s part of why this new bat pin by Girl Fawkes Pins is so teensy? This hard enamel pin measures .75” long and is available in the artist’s Etsy store for $10.
“I am the shadow on the moon at night! Filling your dreams to the brim with fright!” Of all of the Disney villains, who is the scariest?

This week, Castle Club Co. released a special glow in the dark pin inspired by the boogie man. It’s made from glittery hard enamel and measures 1.5” long. Oogie is dual posted and comes with two black rubber backing. Now available through the Castle Club Co. Big Cartel website for $10.
Hey 90s kids! Remember Trolls? Those wild haired, often naked dolls that sometimes had jewels for belly buttons? Or they would occasionally hang out on the backs of our writing utensils?

It measures approximately 1.25x 1.15”. Shoppers have the option to buy the pin with standard rubber backing for $9 or upgrade to a locking pin-back for $10. Now available in the artist’s Etsy store.
Are you skilled at claw machines? Or maybe just wish you were? The latest pin by Lulu Sweet Kawaii Shop should be right up your alley.

Memes never really die. Though it’s been more than a decade since He-Man first appeared online singing his own rendition of the Four Non Blondes early 90s hit “What’s Up”–and somehow it’s still incredibly entertaining.

It’s made from hard enamel and gold plated brass, includes glitter and measures 50×37 mm. The pin is dual posted and comes with corresponding rubber pin-backs. It’s now available for sale at the Megan Allison Design website and Glitch Butt Patreon for $11.
