UNC-TV is a big place with lots of departments and many, many employees. One of those departments is Outreach, which often works (as the name might suggest) out in the community. Usually, these folks are organizing events with school children or teachers and, as such, they have a lot of cool stuff.
The picture below is the sight that greets you as you walk into Outreach. I can’t say for certain whether or not these stuffed creatures are for display or play but it is impossible for me to walk by without my inner child simply squealing with delight.
