It’s graduation season now, and I’ve been working as an usher for the past week at my university. The commencement ceremonies are a wonderful and special time for those who have finally completed their studies, and ushers them into a new phase of life.
With a celebratory mood like this, it is no wonder that many companies are actually cashing in on it, churning out plaques, photography services, and more interestingly, soft toys catered specially to the commencement mood. This picture was something I took at my registration counter, and it’s only a small representation of the various different soft toys that appear from time to time, clad in the graduation robes. Believe it or not, people like gimmicks, and such things sell.
A special mention to the piglet on the far right. Even I couldn’t help but find it adorable.
