My Milk Toof: Our Third Year


Hello Readers!

Can you believe it's been three years for My Milk Toof? I count myself so fortunate that this little blog was able to survive and thrive for another year, and cannot thank you all enough for all your support in helping keep ickle and Lardee going! The highlight for me was definitely the story "Sick Lardee", which took a whole three months to develop and shoot. Thankfully you were all patient, and the positive feedback was overwhelming. It has also been very fun adding Carrot to the adventures (for the few who have been curious about his post-story habitat, let me assure you Carrot is well taken care of).

Sales for my first book published with Chronicle books last year have been good, and we are currently in our third printing! I especially love how so many of you have emailed me that you discovered the book in little store boutiques all over the world.

Lastly, I've recently been looking into producing a long awaited merchandise you have all been asking for: ickle and Lardee TOYS! I can't estimate at this time when they will be ready, but I am working really hard to have them available for sale before the end of the year. Please stay tuned for more updates.

And with that, please lift your virtual champagne glasses with me and here's hoping for another fun year!

Cheers,

Inhae

P.S. I've created a "Story Archives" tab above so you can find the stories you want in a quick and easy way!

Congratulations! I was in Europe last fall, and I saw your book in the English section of a BIG bookstore in Berlin. It made me feel cozy for a second, like I was home. :)

p.s. I had that very same record player when I was little!

Ickle and Lardee toys ???? For sure I want them LOL, having a set of them would be like hosting the "true" Ickle & Lardee's cousin... that would be so funny ! Maybe all those who can purchase them all over the world will take pics of them in touristic places of their country, this would make a funny album, just like if they were travelling around earth LOL

I wish I knew the name of your book - I'd love nothing more than to own a copy.
I can imagine myself reading the adventures of ickle and Lardee to my future children someday.
Surely such sweet stories would instil a love of reading and imagination in any child's (or adults) heart.

Keep up the amazing work Inhae! I love mymilktoof and I'm always amazing and inspired by your creativity . The magnitude of some of ickle and Lardee's adventures blow me away. They always overwhelm me with their cuteness! Don't ever stop doing this!

Can't wait for more merchandise. I didn't get a chance to get the notebooks. I hope you make more.
