Working Pillows

Contrary to common belief, pillows can be career-oriented:

Dr. Ploo here was made and dedicated to Mishka, who just completed his first year of Med school!

An inspiration to future Dr. Mish, here is Dr. Ploo with his very own cabinet of med books and glow-in-the-dark medicine/poison bottles.
We agreed that each year Mishka completes, Dr. Ploo will get more accessories until he has his very own clinic and office !

More amazing, intelligent and altruistic friends! This tiny Doc is dedicated to Anna, who is now in the middle of her successful medical studies and will soon be taking off to Cambridge for a year to complete a Poli-Sci MA!!

These are her accessories: teacup for England, Globe for Poli-Sci studies, and syringe for Med school :)

Good luck, Docs!

More career options include Architecture! This one is for my dad :)

Pencil and ruler always at the ready, (glow-in-the-dark) building plans rolled and wrapped, plus hard-hat for on-site tours - pillow-safety first!

Ok, this one isn't really about a job, it's just a Brazilian pillow (or "pillão" in the native tongue!)
- for Mom!

Sharpener for scale, with jolly maracas

and last one, Sir Pillowingtonshireham the First - who you already know - only I noticed lately that he had actually been standing next to a British phone booth (aka tin box for tea) all this time, and it just seemed appropriate:

Toodle pip!


  1. Best present I ever got in my life.

    Are Dr. Ploo and Anna's extremely cool female-pillow-doctor-thingie related? and does this mean that he can write her teeny tiny letters?

    Maya, you're truely gifted.

    and thank you so much! :-]

    - Mishka

  2. Mish, i recommend always writing teeny tiny letters :)

    thanks, guys!

    My favorites are Pillão and Sir Pillowingtonshireham the First! :)
