So, here’s the thing about stickers. They’re awesome! You see a cool sticker, you just HAVE to have it, right? You buy it, you get all excited, and then, if you’re like me, you put it in a drawer. That’s it. You can’t use it, because once you use it, it’s gone! It’s over for that sticker, and then you never have it again! This is my eternal sticker quandary.
The 80’s were a great time for stickers, because it was perfectly normal to carry around your sticker book. You’d keep them all in the book, show them off, trade them. But they stayed alive! You never had to commit to putting your sticker ON anything permanently. But, time has moved on, and now, stickers aren’t for the faint of heart. Sure, some of you are brave, you’ll put them on your laptops and monitors, cars and lockers, you’ll even put them right on your fridge! You’ll do things with them, share them and show the world your beloved stickers! Unless you’re like me. Then, you just have a great big drawer of stickers that you love, and cherish, and no one gets to see.
Speaking of stickers, The Attic has a crazy number of super awesome stickers that you might wanna take a look at. And maybe buy. And stick in a drawer? Well, that’s up to you.
Like what you see? We’ve got even more in the shop! So don’t wait, check ’em out now! Your drawers are waiting!Back to the Attic

So, it’s pretty obvious that here in the Attic, we’re big fans of bats. Why? Well, they’re extremely cute, super useful (if you hate being attacked by flying insects) and they’re one of the more interesting animals you have a good chance of encountering in your nightly life (unlike that weird person in the club who seems glued to the pole. What are they DOING, anyway?)
To show some of our love, and to help you show yours, we’ve got a TON of swank duds for bat lovers! And when you’re done drooling over all those goodies, you should take a few minutes and check out some awesome things you may not know about bats!
First up, we’ve got a TON of awesome bat socks!

Finally, if you’re looking for a little snuggle time, just you and a bat, you might wanna check out this little guy. He’s an uglydoll bat doll with his own bat doll. You’re not going to get a whole lot cuter than that now, are you?
No, you’re not. And you’re welcome. Now, after you’re done shopping for all the bat gear you crave, check out some awesome facts about our furry little (and sometimes not so little!) friends.
Cool bat facts!:
There are 1,100 species of bats worldwide, making up a quarter of the world’s mammals. There are 40 species of bats in the United States alone, and many of them will swoop down where you can see them clearly, if you toss a cheerio up in the air above your head.
Bats can live more than 30 years and can fly at speeds of up to 60 mph. Sure, people live longer, but we can’t fly at all. Lame.
Bats can find their food in total darkness. They locate insects by emitting inaudible high-pitched sounds, 10-20 beeps per second and listening to echoes. People can also often find their food in total darkness, but only because they’ve taken the same route to the fridge over and over, so many times. Plus, our food isn’t flying around, hopefully.
Many bats eat insects. Bats can eat up to 1,200 mosquitoes in an hour and often consume their body weight in insects every night, helping keep bug populations in check. In contrast, most humans don’t even eat one mosquito a NIGHT. Sounds like maybe we’re not really pulling our weight in the great battle against mosquitoes.
Other bats eat fruit or nectar and can play an important role as pollinators. There are only three species of “vampire bats”—bats that live off the blood of animals. None of those species lives in the United States. If something is sucking your blood, it’s either a mosquito, a phlebotomist, or some jerk.
More than half of the bat species in the United States are in severe decline or listed as endangered. In addition to loss of habitat, one of the most dire threat comes from white nose syndrome, a disease that has decimated bats in the U.S. and Canada. The Nature Conservancy collaborated in a recent breakthrough, successfully treating and releasing infected bats. Want to help bats out? Give them a home, and install a bat house!
Some bats migrate south for the winter, while others hibernate through the cold winter months. During hibernation, bats can survive in freezing temperatures, even after being encased in ice; conversely, many people begin to suffer pain and misery when they can’t find their slippers and the bathroom tiles are cold.
Most bats have only one pup a year, making them extremely vulnerable to extinction. Bat mothers can find their babies among thousands or millions of other bats by their unique voices and scents, much in the same way you can find your friends at a festival like Burning Man.
Bat droppings, called guano, are one of the richest fertilizers. Bat guano was once a big business. Guano was Texas’s largest mineral export before oil! Even poop is bigger in Texas.
Austin is a seasonal home to North America’s largest urban population of Mexican free-tailed bats, which live beneath the Congress Avenue Bridge. Approximately 1.5 million bats reside there! For your very own guano hat, visit the bridge and hang out for a while!
The world’s largest bat is the “flying fox” that lives on islands in the South Pacific. It has a wingspan of up to 6 feet. It is also fuzzy and adorable.
The world’s smallest bat is the bumble bee bat of Thailand, which is smaller than a thumbnail and weighs less than a penny.
