Napoleon says Happy New Year too!

As of Thursday January 2nd, 2020, we will officially have a 6 pack in-stock! Anyone who is waiting on books, they go out this weekend! The printer continually had machines break down during the holidays BUT they were repaired today! THANK YOU for your orders and patience!


Happy 2020! It is going to be Christmas all year!!!!

C. 2019 Jake Barlow/CBS NEWS My office area. I just got an idiotic message from FACEBOOK restricting me from posting and sharing my posts in groups? I only shared my FATHER TIME Happy New Year post in a small handful. They have some sort of system checker set up that sees someone, I guess, posting posts too fast in groups. FACEBOOK, YOU TUBE, TWITTER, etc. All remind me of the communist country we could be, if these kinds of people are in control of things. I guess you would call it "Restricting free speech" unless it fits their agenda. FACEBOOK has no problem with sharing inapprorpriate ads, if they are paid for.

I was all set to head in to the printer's today and have all the boxes prepped, but the printing quality was below our standard and we are shooting for Monday now, as they needed a fine tuning repair on their printers.

Exciting book update!

The printer let me know that several of our books we had on Back Order, were ready for pickup today and I asked about the Frosty books and they said maybe tomorrow.   They will let me know tomorrow!   I brought the proof to my family Christmas gathering and my Mom said "It is very colorful!"   There is lots of color and great art and images!   It doesn't just pertain to Frosty, as there are images of surviving Animagic figures and from my events, etc.   I will keep everyone posted and add the tracking #s to orders as I ship.  If they are done tomorrow, I will have a busy Friday night and Larry the mailman will have a busy Saturday!  You can still order yours exclusively at www.miserbros.com
