This is my 8th week curating a niche-specific Instagram Roundup, and it’s the biggest one yet. (You people make awesome stuff, and take excellent photos.) ┬áToday, we find ourselves on a global adventure of toys, art, cats, and um, a squirrel through the UK, the US, Mexico, Australia, Germany, Switzerland, The Philippines, Hong Kong and Japan.

We catch up on a couple old projects and preview a few new ones. When you make it to the final photograph, you’ll meet the newest member of the Toy Fam: Piper Tolleson. Congrats to Scott and Kathy! Instagram Roundup trivia: This is the third baby to be born in as many weeks. Last week, New York artist, Lou Pimentel, welcomed little Andrew Parker. The week prior, San Francisco artists (and owners of Kokoro Gallery), Keiko and Ray, welcomed little Kiki. Who will it be next week? Hopefully not Snooki! Enjoy your weekends! Lets do this.
