FIGURE OF THE WEEK #83: Beach Bunny Catchin' Rays

Hot fun in the Summertime!
We are right smack in the middle of the dog days of summer and what better way to celebrate them then with this classic plastic 60s babe known as "Beach Bunny Catchin' Rays" This groovy gal hails from the Hawk Models Silly Surfer range an off shoot of the Weird-Ohs. Issued starting in 1964 the Silly Surfers were designed by Rueben Klamer. Who? You know...Rueben Klamer the guy who designed the Game of Life for Milton Bradley! The figures were sculpted by Bob Allen who was one of the creators of Tom & Jerry. Along with her beach pals Hodad Makin' The Scene, Hot Dogger & Surf Bunny Ridin' Tandum, Woodie on Surfari and Hot Dogger Hangin' Ten, Beach Bunny put a smile on many a baby boomer model builders face. Believe or not these classic kits are still available today in the form of Hawk reissues. So order up a Silly Surfer and start your own Endless Summer!

So to Beach Bunny we bestow the coveted Figure of the Week award and what a figure it is! Grrr....
