Perhaps you caught Jason Freeny‘s announcement this morning entitled: Freeny + Jailbreak = “CAPSL”. I have taken it upon myself to do a titular paraphrasing and achieve: “Jailbreak + Jason Freeny = Awesome”. Either way you slice the semantics, Jailbreak and Jason Freeny have teamed up to make an incredible product, and yours truly gets to be involved in it!
There is a striking similarity between the names of Jailbreak founder, Jason Feinberg, and Godfather of Toy Anatomy, Jason Freeny. This, combined with their passing knowledge of each other and Jailbreak’s fandom for Freeny’s work, meant an introduction was in order. In September of 2010, I cc’d my friends, the two Jasons, on an email, writing: “Who knows, perhaps someday you could make a dream toy.”
Perhaps, indeed. I’m really, really excited about the CAPSL project. This is just the beginning of a new art movement. Stay attuned.
Mutual admiration can be a beautiful thing, especially when it transforms from simple affection for another’s work into an actual working relationship. Such is the case today as we proudly welcome journalist, art curator and all around “Toy Maven” Jeremy Brautman to the Jailbreak family.
Jeremy first caught our attention while working for the now-defunct ToyCyte, a designer toy blog where he served as editor-in-chief. After a stint writing the blog and handling the social media for vinyl toy company Neon Monster, Jeremy curated his first group art show, LOVE MOVEMENT, to great success. From these various efforts, which also included writing for the likes of Cool Hunting, JoshSpear.com, HEEB Magazine and maintaining his own personal blog, Jeremy has become perhaps the most knowledgeable and well-respected toy journalist working today.
Likewise, Jeremy became acquainted with Jailbreak through various correspondences with us over the past two years, during which he shared his expertise on the toy world for a variety of our past, current, and ongoing projects.
Going forward, Jeremy will have a myriad of responsibilities at this new gig, including, but not limited to, writing blog posts (starting with the one right above this!), tweeting, brand management, eating nauseating amounts of gummy bears, and generally having a pretty damn good time.
Help us in welcoming Mr. Brautman to the team!

With the Hundred Dollar Wallet, it’s what’s on the outside that counts. If you’ve always felt like a rockstar but have never quite gotten the treatment you deserve, the Hundred Dollar Wallet is the answer to your problems. Just pull it out of your pocket and watch as people line up to offer to carry your luggage, seat you at the best table in the house, or tilt your coffee cup to your lips when you’re ready for a sip.
Before buying the Hundred Dollar Wallet, you must ask yourself this one simple question: Are you the kind of guy who carries a boring old leather wallet or are you a jetsetting international playboy who parties with supermodels on his yacht every summer in the Greek islands?
