Coco All Year Round

Thank goodness. The elections are over and the chicks can get back to silly business. While the rest of you were voting for the Lesser of Two Weevils, we here at Chick Central were getting acquainted with Coco (no relation to the monkey, Puffs, or Ms. Chanel).

Coco is a chick with a style all her own, no matter the season. In double-spread dioramas, Coco celebrates each month's holiday in true silly chick fashion: she dyes herself green for St. Patrick's Day, dons a T. Rex costume for Halloween, and designs the best-hat-ever for Grandma on Christmas Day. We are especially fond of Coco's favorite toy (a giraffe on wheels) and her pet turtle named Raoul. Better than Barbie any day of the week, Coco shows us that all a chick needs to be cool is a dash of moxie and a big pink bow. Coco in 2008!
