All the write stuff

"How strange to have a paper love," remarks Griffin in "Griffin & Sabine, An Extraordinary Correspondence," the best-selling picture book that takes readers inside a long-distance soul-mate relationship between two artists. Now you can purchase the tools needed to begin a paper love of your own -- stationery, postcards, decorative stamps and pencils. All can be found in Griffin & Sabine: An Extraordinary Writing Box. Adorning each item are images from the original books (there are three). The box sells for $24.95 and is available at bookstores and gift shops. Yesterday it was the mood ring, today it's the new Four-Faced Rag Doll. This limp-bodied cutie has four different faces to go with four different moods: crying, laughing, yawning, sleeping. Her facial details are embroidered, and she is dressed in a calico floral dress with bloomers and lace trim. The 28-inch playmate, made in Thailand, is available from SERRV International Gift Shops, 8 Pennsylvania Ave., Towson, (410) 825-5785. SERVV is a non-profit store that promotes social and economic progress of people in developing regions of the world by purchasing and marketing their crafts. Trading cards with players that will never go on strike are a hot new item for visitors to the National Aquarium in Baltimore. Twelve-card packs feature color photographs of the strawberry poison dart frog, emerald tree boa, hawksbill turtle, Japanese red squid and other residents of the aquarium. The cards, printed on recycled paper, include vital statistics of each animal on the back. The pack sells for $1.95 at the aquarium's Marine Mammal Pavilion Gift Shop. To place a mail order, call (410) 659-4296.
