Lost and found...and mine!


Sunglasses, books, keys, flash drives, and earphones. Those are the things we get on a weekly basis.

At my university job we have a little lost and found section behind the front desk where we store all the things students leave behind.

Among the forgotten items, some things really stand out.

Look what was turned in several weeks ago.....

What the what?!

It appears to be a toy for a baby...or cat. Not sure but I do know it's colorful, unique-looking, and rattles when you shake it. Cool!

No one's claimed it yet and rather than toss it, I decided to take the toy home and add it to my menagerie of colorful objects.

Yay!!

Now. It's. MINE!

This should be recreated ginormously. What a piece of art.

It looks like a cute demonstration model of a magnetosphere. 8D

Very interesting.

To me it looks more like something designed to be grasped and shaken by hands than to be batted around by paws ( much less to be grasped by claws). Cat toys mostly are designed so that the cat can imagine it's dealing with a mouse. So I'd go with the "toy for a baby" idea.

Nice that you have another bit of color brightening up your home.

I am pretty sure I had something like as a child.

Ian, well most of my collection has already been posted on my blog at some point or another, especially the more recent posts.

One of these days I'll have to group it all together for a photo shoot!

I appreciate you both dropping by!
