REVIEW: Gus Fink’s Boogily Bunnies

Img_3092_2

Background

Not to be confused with Boogily Heads, Gus Fink’s Boogily Bunnies are a plush based line of art toys.  Produced by Rocket USA, the initial series contains six different characters:  Octobunny, Flopps, Bunny Boyd, Charlie Black, Slurp and Derf.

Even though each figure is a plush, they are poseable (thanks to wires) and stand on their own (a flat base and bean bags).  On all of the plushies, it’s possible to bend and pose all of the arms and ears.

Packaging

Like most plush lines, the Boogily Bunnies are not packaged.  Each does come tagged with a mystery mini comix/poster and a collectible art card.

The Figures

The six plushies each have bendable arms and ears.  The materials used range from pleather details to rubbery whiskers.  We’ll take a look at the bios of each character from the enclosed art card.

Octobunny  (10 ½” tall): Scientifically made, OctoBunny can produce babies whenever she wants more.  Her ears act as arms giving her 8 long tentacles.

Charlie Black (9” tall): The toughest bunny of all.  Charlie Black is a rebel not to be messed with, he as made millions from bare knuckle boxing.

Slurp (8 ½” tall): After fighting off fans for years Slurp now makes a living off his tastey face, it pays the bills and pleases the masses.

Derf (9” tall): Best known as the Easter Bunny in the 1990’s, Derf retired to work at his favorite fast food chain yet he still lives with his parents.

Our Opinion

There are essentially two categories of plush toys – the cuddling kind and the displayable sort.  Neither is “better”, since each appeals to collectors who are looking for a specific like.  The Boogily Bunnies fall into the realm of displayable plushies.

So are you wondering about who we like?  Bunny Boyd tops the list.  Is he a bunny inside of a rabbit suit?  Who knows!  We just know we like the character.  He’d be followed up by Octobunny (we love all of the arms), Slurp (he might be the best representative of the line), Charlie Black (the mouth scares me a little), Derf (it looks like he’s been in a horrible accident) and then Flopps (she looks a little too ”Ugly”).

All of the characters differ enough in style and color, that you should be able to find one to fit your personality.
