You end up with wall murals that are the envy of all your friends. We ran across this great paint job on Flickr and can be found in a southern suburb of Kansas City that the Madl family calls home. Curious to see what Dad does? Click through to check it out...

Aidan Madl has an illustrator and toy designer for a Father and to him, he's just Dad. He goes to Karate and T-Ball and it won't be until later that he notices the difference between his Dad and others. His Father, Jeremy Madl (Mad) is the master mind behind Mad Toy Design and Solid-Industries.

The mouth painted on the wall in Aidan's room belongs to one of Mad's characters which appears on different apparel and toys. We happen to be rather fond of this Ape in portable speaker form, which is what the above Headphonies, are. He's also found on apparel over at Kid Robot. You can check out more of Mad's designs from his Ebay store!

Thanks Aidan and Jeremy!
