Who Would Buy This? The Archie McPhee Story

Who Would Buy This?

Archie McPhee, an wonderfully unique toy company based in Seattle, recently published “Who Would Buy This?”, a book chronicling their 30 year history of making bizarre stuff.

This book features some of the strangest and most amazing products we have created or found over the past 30 years. Some were great successes, some utter, miserable failures. A few even got us into trouble with the Secret Service, the US Department of Defense and the US Department of Transportation! The story is told with luscious color photographs and insightful commentary.

When I’m in Seattle, I often try to make a trip over to Ballard to visit their amazing Archie McPhee store. Here are some photos I shot there back in 2005.
