REVIEW: Evil Icecream Plushies
If the name Kerry Horvath sounds familiar to you…it’s because she is Uglydoll creator David Horvath’s sister. Kerry, along with fellow LA based artist Darth Rimmer, have created a line of ice cream inspired characters known as Evil Icecream. Both artists enjoy eating ice cream (who doesn’t?), but they believe it’s inherently evil. I blame it for the love handles!
Kerry and Darth have hooked up with Lazysmash to bring collectors a line of plush dairy delights. Evil Icecream (the orange creamsicle looking character) and Ice Clown (maybe pistachio ice cream in a cone??) are the first two characters released.
No packaging with these plush figures, but they do have tags that list all of the characters in the Evil Ice Cream line.
Both the Evil Icecream and Ice Clown plushies are 8” tall and made of
soft velveteen fabric. The base of each plush has what feels like a
piece of cardboard inserted underneath the fabric. It makes it a
little less “cuddly” but allows you to balance these plush figures on a
flat surface – a frequent complaint of plush collectors.
The good thing about plush melting ice cream is that it doesn’t make a
mess. The bad thing is that you can’t eat it…well, you could, but only
if you have a very high fiber diet.
Horvath and Rimmer have created some unique characters. I’m not sure
of any other lines based on ice cream sandwiches and popsicles. The
quality isn’t top notch, but that’s made up for with a decent retail
price. It will be interesting to see how the announced line of 12
vinyl figures is received.
DKE Toys is the wholesaler of these products.
