The other night we were re-watching Despicable Me for the hundredth time, laughing and having a cuteness overload, when the scene where Agnes spots the giant Unicorn at the fair, “he’s so fluffy, I’m gonna die”. That movie came out July, 2010 and unicorns have only continued to grow in popularity since. Some may say it had something also to do with Miley Cyrus, and other musicians using unicorns, or unicorn heads in their videos etc. but I choose the pure, untainted love of the Agnes train.
Unicorns are great because they represent so many wonderful things. Like what? Well, like being unique, hard to get, magical, mystical, and colourful. Generally a symbol to our generation of just being yourself. All things we loved when we were young and try to continue being in our adulthood. When I was young, we had the movie the last unicorn, and I have been sold on them ever since. Now, I am not a major collector of ceramic figurines or anything, but I have to say there is some pretty fantastic unicorn swag out on the markets these days. We have put together our short list of fav unicorn finds of 2017, all made and sourced in North America. Enjoy, and if you like them, please use our links to buy them, it helps support the site and keep things running.
