Today is International Tabletop Day! There are a number of Harvey board games in the permanent collection, and several more I do not own. However, due to the difficulty of photographing them, I have only featured one board game so far as an exhibit. Today let us look back on the Casper the Friendly Ghost game by Milton Bradley:
Today is World Intellectual Property Day. This year’s theme is innovation – improving lives. I would like to name WordPress as an innovation that has improved my life. I would not have been able to create the Harvey Mercheum website as it is without it. Take a moment today to think about innovations that have improved your life.
As promised, today’s exhibit is the only Easter-themed item in the permanent collection. Over the years, Harvey licensed a number of holiday-themed dolls. We have already seen two, the Christmas-themed “Happy Houday!” doll and the Valentine’s Day-themed “Can’t Buy Me Love” doll. Today we have Richie carrying a large carrot and wearing rabbit ears and an ugly jacket. I am guessing it is supposed to be a rabbit costume. Perhaps it was too warm for him to wear a fursuit? There is one other holiday-themed doll in the permanent collection, hopefully I will post it later this year. In the meantime, here’s Richie and his unfortunate choice of outerwear:

Sorry for not posting this weekend. I admit I spent part of the weekend enjoying the lovely spring weather. The time I would have spent posting, however, I spent setting up my little photo studio and taking pictures for exhibits. One of the items I photographed is the only Easter-themed item in the permanent collection. Be watching for it this coming Sunday!

Today is the three year anniversary of the Harvey Mercheum! Only 18 new exhibits were posted during the third year of operation. While this number is disappointing, I know I spent a lot of time and effort this past year behind the scenes. First there was the theme switch, then there was the hosting company switch. I am glad these projects are completed, and I feel the Harvey Mercheum is better off because of them. I have many more ideas for the future, and welcome your ideas as well.
