After several years of sowing, watering, and reaping Attaboy's pull-string talking Gooberry will finally be picked for human consumption by the bicycle-riding indy label Silver Sprocket.

The first 45 talking Gooberries will be available exclusively at Atta's "A Touch of Evil" art show June 13th at LA's POV Evolving Gallery where folks can pick their own unripened Gooberry from the Gooberry Patch. For more info on the Gooberry, how to pre-order , and to see a larger version of Brian McCarty's shot (to be printed in Hi-Fructose vol.12), which he braved the wrath of an irate Gooberry farmer to get go here!

After several years of sowing, watering, and reaping Attaboy’s pull-string talking Gooberry will finally be picked for human consumption by the bicycle-riding indy label Silver Sprocket. Under-ripe and malformed, each hug and pull of it’s pull-string brings the Gooberry closer to a most painful death.

The Gooberry is a rare and exotic breathing, screaming living fruit/being:
-The first 45 talking Gooberries will be available exclusively at Atta’s “A Touch of Evil” art show June 13th at LA’s POV Evolving Gallery where folks can pick their own unripened Gooberry direct from the Gooberry Patch.

-a second batch is available direct through pre-order starting today through Silver Sprocket and will be sent in July.

-A small amount will then be available at the Hi-Fructose booth at the Sandiego Comic-Con and then at select retailers.

About the Gooberry:Each Gooberry has been freshly picked from a secret Gooberry Patch before ripening just for you!

Like a newborn’s skull, their soft skin has yet to be fully formed, so a Gooberry is very impressionable and extra-sensitive to your each and every touch!

Please, please, DO NOT attempt to eat a Goobery, as they taste like strawberry whipped crème.

DO NOT pull a Gooberry’s string, as each pull, although wholly satisfying to you, brings the Gooberry that much closer to a most painful death.

Measuring 12.5 inches tall, the Gooberry squeaks in pain when you squeeze her pinchers, and cowers in fear from your every snuggle.

Truely an interactive experience, the Gooberry is the first designer plush to feature a pull-string sound box and squeakers!
