Sometimes I'm Mr. Grumpy but I'm always Mr. Bumpy

Mr. Men and Little Miss, the official site of childhood classics, where you can even make your own. For those who can't get enough, there's always the unofficial site.

So many ways to abuse the "make your own Mr. Man or Little Miss" applet.

I loved those books when I was a kid. Those and Barba Papa.

"Clickity click. Barba trick." I wish I were an amorphous blob with transformative powers.

Was the link inspired by this thread?

This is awesome. When I was a youth, my grandmother lived with us, and the three times she took a trip "back home" she brought Mr. Men books back for us (my sister and I).

She passed away recently and this brings back some happy memories. Thanks drezdn.

What AlexReynolds said-- thanks, drezdn! Loved those books when I was a kid, but they seem pretty rare in the States these days...

I loved those books! I bought them to give to my kid cousins not too long ago.

The folks on the livejournal crafting communities seem to like them too, as I've seen several Mr. Men T-shirts pop-up.
