If it has “oddities” in the title, there’s a good chance I’ll go down a massive rabbit hole exploring it. Thus, Oddities Store was an enjoyable find indeed.

French painter Albert Besnard has a series of figurative Death pieces, in which the ominous bony figure shows up boldly or furtively…blending into the crowd and shadows, startling those he encounters as an unexpected guest, or simply looking dapper.
While he is also known for his success in watercolor, pastel, oil and etching in portraiture, landscape and decoration, I particularly like this little collection I’ve assembled here.
Got $2,3000 to spend on a toy? Consider the Mad Mad Mad Scientist Laboratory.
Found on Ebay:
One of the holy grails on Monster toys. 1965 The Mad Mad Mad Scientist Laboratory Sold briefly through the back pages of Famous Monsters of Filmland Magazine. Original Cost – $4.95. Considered the rarest Monster toy in existence. Only 4 known to exist. This is the second finest one known. Would be considered mint but one of the chemicals leaked and damaged the bottom of the box. Other than that, cover is super mint and shiny.
It actually looks like a pretty amazing kit. The test tubes appear a bit more “real” than I would expect. I’d love to hand make something like this for a special kid; set up a whole box of mad scientist goodies with a cool cover.
