Cover Characteristic – Toy(s)


This is a new meme hosted by Sugar & Snark. It came about when Sugar was wondering which cover to use for her #70 Cover of the Week post. Sugar kept on thinking of more than one, and they all seemed to have a theme/characteristic. So she decided to switch things up a bit!

Each week we will post a characteristic and choose 5 of our favorite covers with that characteristic. If you want to join in and share your 5 favorite covers with the weeks particular characteristic, then just make a post, grab the meme picture (or make your own) and leave your URL in Linky (so we can visit). You don’t even need to participate, just stopping by and saying hi would be great! Don’t forget to stop by the other participants!

Today’s cover characteristic: Toy(s)

Sugar’s list:


5.  My Furby Handbook by Hasbro
4. Winkie by Clifford Chase
3. The Harry Potter Lego Minifigure Catalog: 1st Edition by Christoph Bartneck
2. Reality Check by Jen Calonita

And Sugar’s favorite…

  • Aww!!! Your picks are so cute! I love them all, especially the Winkie and HP covers. That’s not entirely true, Furby’s are evil.

    • Sugar & Snark

      Noooo why don’t you like Furby?

      • Oh sure they’re cute. Until you leave the room and they start talking to each other conspiring against you, only to fall silent when you return. I’ve seen it happen.

        • Sugar & Snark

          Hahaha if I have Furby nightmares it is all your fault!

  • I still remember running around my house shouting in excitement when I got my first furbie, haha. I like the Reality Check and Moxyland covers best though. Moxyland definitely looks like it’d be a conversation starter! (Btw I’m all excited that I’m finally joining since I love book covers and
    always kind of end up just lurking and looking at yours.)

      I still pine for a Furbie. I’m going to buy my future child one just so I can play with it 🙂
      Whoohoooo welcome!

  • Lisa Mandina

    Love all your covers! I didn’t think about any nonfiction ones.

    • Sugar & Snark
