"It was a one-eyed, one-horned flying purple people eater..." as the silly Sheb Wooley 1958 song goes. This is my version of the creature, a furry monster figurine complete with wings, teeth and tongue, a horn made to look like a musical instrument, and pigeon toes. As the lyrics reveal, this purple people eater only eats purple people (so you probably don't need to worry).

His feet are weighted to help him stand up on a table top; there is no hanger like many of my figurines. The Purple People Eater is posed in a sort of swagger, with his raggedy looking wings unfurled. He doesn't actually play music, so you'll just have to fill in the song with your imagination. You can pose the arms and legs a little differently if you want, but right now I have him balanced to stand up properly. Both arms are long enough to reach the clarinet (or whatever instrument it is) on the monster's forehead.

If you want one that hangs rather than stands up, let me know and I'll create a different version for you; I currently only have one of these, which is pictured here.

Dimensions:
5 1/2 in. tall x 5 in. wide x 2 in. front to back (US)
14 cm. tall x 12.5 cm. wide x 5 cm. front to back (Metric)

This figurine is handmade by me, according to my design. My artwork is frequently inspired by vintage themes, and this one is obviously no exception. I hope you'll love him! He is intended just for display, not for play. Please keep out of reach of children and pets, because he can be damaged fairly easily.

Support art! Please do not copy the design or the pictures. Purchase of the figure does not constitute the sale of the design and pattern.

I ship this figure in a small box, first class domestic with delivery confirmation (2-5 days), or first class international (approximately 10-14 days in most cases). Where possible, I will try to combine shipping and ship multiple item orders in the same package.

Questions? Please don't hesitate to ask. I answer quickly!
