Monday Cute: Sean Astin Plays With Toys & Remains Our Noble Hero


Recommended Videos

On Thursday afternoon, actor and universally known delightful person, Sean Astin (aka Bob aka Samwise aka Rudy), teamed up with Sharper Image to promote their Pop-Up Store Launch Party in Times Square. I attended the event and can say that it was awesome to see Astin hanging out with kids and hosting a toy car race between the NYPD and NYFD.

Astin took the time to talk to everyone and treated everyone with the utmost respect and kindness. In this world of terror, Sean Astin remains the hero we deserve. Now watch and be delighted:

In addition, there was an amazing artist there, Sandrine, also known as @ladybrownart on Instagram, who did great illustrations on large Jenga blocks! If you can make it to New York City’s Times Square, definitely check out the Sharper Image pop-up shop to see some of her work—and maybe get your own face on a block.
