REVIEW: New Uglydolls – Deer Ugly and Gato Deluxe
The folks at Uglydoll (led by creator David Horvath) have released two more of their extremely collectible plushies in Deer Ugly and Gato Deluxe. As always, we’ll provide you with the backgrounds of these characters…as they are always an interesting read.
Deer Ugly lives in the forest where it’s nice and quiet. Yeah but deep down, he’s thinking: “Please take me home with you!” The nice quiet forest is great, but Deer Ugly wants to see the world...YOUR world!
He wants to explore the fantastic places you frequent. Like that room with the desk and computer? What is THAT for? Not much I guess. Please write letters to Deer Ugly. No, not emails. Real letters with real paper! But how would you begin such a letter? Deer Ugly!
And…Gato Deluxe is all that! He’s got it going on big time! Just look at him! He’s got a nose, some hands and enough confidence to make you think he’s up to something fantastic!
Or at least that’s Gato Deluxe on the outside. On the inside, Gato Deluxe is a real sweetheart who knows he’s all that, big time. Wait, that’s the same. That’s right baby! Gato Deluxe is walking down the street! Like I had to tell you!
Try not to stare! Meow!
Uglydolls don’t have those constricting baggies around them. How would they breathe? They are tagged…like some wild animals.
Uglydolls are available in 4”, 7”, 14” and 24” sizes. For purposes of
this review, we are looking at the normal – 14” tall – variety. If
you’ve seen one Uglydoll, you know what you’re getting. The eyes, the
straight mouth, the teeth (and sometimes a nose) are all rather similar.
Each character does bring a slightly different attitude and personality
to the plate.
The two new characters continue these unique personalities. Deer Ugly
is obviously part deer. He has little antlers beginning to sprout out
of his head. What point buck will he be? And Gato Deluxe is well…a
gato…err…cat. Hopefully he doesn’t need a litter box. That could get
We always like Uglydolls that bring a new color to the table. And
these are no exception. I actually had to go check through my Ugly
collection to make sure that these colors were not duplicated.
Close…but they checked out.
There also seems to be a theme going, with the last three releases
being modeled after animals – worm, deer and cat. And a worm is part
of the animal kingdom Mr. Smartypants. We know that Abima is the last
Ugly of the year…so who’s after that? Hmm…
