Meet our new Ugly Doll friends, Mr. and Mrs. Kasoogi!

Psychobaby fans, we'd like to introduce you to Mr. and Mrs. Kasoogi, two new additions to the Ugly Dolls family! Now, excepting for their brightly different colors, it is easy to think that the Kasoogis have started to act and look alike through their marriage, but we are here to say that once you get to know them, they couldn't be more different! Mrs. Kasoogi won't mind us telling you that she is the boss lady of the house - especially when the Mr. has his hand in the cookie jar! These two are quite the perfect pair, as Mr. Kasoogi loves to travel and look for treasure, while Mrs. Kasoogi loves to pay attention to details and keeps everything running smoothly - except when the Mister goes off in the hunt for cookies! Mr. and Mrs. Kasoogi would love to go on adventures for cookies and other yummy treats and then plan a giant nap for your little one! To invite them over to your house, shop for the happy couple or the other new Ugly Doll Turny Burny now at psychobabyonline.com!

Hope = Life: Help Jasper Fight Batten Disease!


Children at public and private schools across Chicago have come together to create a city-wide initiative to help their friend, Jasper Duinstra, and other children like him receive treatments for Batten Disease, a violently degenerative illness. These inspirational Chicago children (be sure to check them out - they really say it all, and in the best way possible!) have made collection cans that live throughout our entire city, in the hopes that their artistic contribution will help raise contributions large enough so Jasper and others with Batten can get the help they need.

4 year old Jasper was diagnosed with Batten disease in February of this year, and as his parents, Pip and Bou, state on their website, jasperagainstbatten.org, "Within a year, we went from a healthy son with some speech delay, to a son with epilepsy, to a son with epilepsy and autism to this devastating disease and prognosis." Jasper, and many other children like him, are in desperate need of treatment, and Jasper's family has chosen to be emboldened by the challenges that face them, and keep working and hoping for treatment, as "Hope = Life."

Psychobaby's brick and mortar store is joining with their youngest friends in the city-wide initiative to raise funds for Jasper Against Batten. Stop on by and help us help Jasper and others like him as they continue their battle against Batten. If you would like to donate online, or send the Duinstra family a message, please visit jasperagainstbatten.org
