Yes, it’s the Friday Instagram Roundup on a Tuesday. Last week’s IG photo re-cap was pre-empted for Bailey’s Memorial Pictorial. I found a lot of support through social media, and I still managed to click “like” on a bunch of your photos during the difficult week. This Roundup is perhaps one of the most random yet. Although the toys, art and cats remain, questions arise. What exactly is happening in the photo above? Where are all those Be@rbricks going (below)? If collecting is a disease, is Uglydoll the cure? Is Dalek returning to Space Monkeys? Do you like green eggs and ham? Will that vintage green McDonald’s Fry Guy become my next avatar? Where can one find a fresh pair of Crack Wash brand jeans?

Enjoy this Instagram Roundup, and have a good rest of the week. See you back here on Friday!
