Inflatable sculpture

The Goofs are part of an entourage of inflatable Monsters that are taking over the world, but how they got here and what their motives are is unknown. These peculiar gentle giants are often found in public places, silently observing our ways. Some say that they are talking to us through telepathy and are trying to make friends, some say they feed on our emotions – especially surprise and happiness, some say they are conspiring to cause mischief ….maybe one day someone will be able to let us know what they are thinking?
