I am flattered to have been mentioned in the New York Times, and welcome to all visitors finding this page that way.

I've gotten quite a few emails regarding the site, and to answer the most common question, I haven't updated it in a while because I haven't had time, as I am a medical resident. However, thanks to many kind readers, I now have pictures of many, many new drug rep toys and I'll be posting these as I get the chance. In addition, I have a few unphotographed items which I'll add soon.

I briefly allowed comments here, but too many people either didn't get the joke or were using the comments for making statements of their own. I prefer to let the pictures and my commentary stand on their own. Feel free to let me know if you disagree.

Thanks for stopping by.

Vintage Calendar

Courtesy of an alert reader comes this drug rep toy from the era of Nixon and Evita, ABBA and the Ramones. Apparently this has been going on for quite some time.

Humira tool holder

This one's actually decently useful for someone suffering from the disease it treats. Mad props to Abbott.

Lovenox scissors

I'm not sure of the wisdom behind advertising an anti-coagulant with a sharp object, but then, there you are.

Uroxatral Stapler

I'm really not sure about the connection between staples and BPH, but the stapler works quite well.

GlaxoSmithKline Stress ball

From the people who brought you both Avandia and the Avandia stress ball comes, you guessed it, another stress ball. I think further commentary here would be superfluous.

Avelox First Aid Kit

A small water-resistant first aid kit from the nice people at Bayer. Unfortunately, the only things that came inside were four small Band-Aids. No Avelox, but more to the point, if you are going someplace that you need a water-resistant first aid kit, you're probably going to need more than a Band-Aid if you get hurt.
