Ainsley Sturko and Grumble Toy started to make their own line of plush creatures - the Bonhomme of Winnipeg. He is a limited edition plush (only 10 made) that is available in our shop. Each one is unique and has his own facial expressions. Each plush comes with a hand-stamped tag as well as a print of the drawing the plush was inspired from. It reminds me of the 80's movie - Critters.

The folks from blackpeach debuted their gini-gini plush series at Toy Fair 2008. The gini-gini were designed by Ru Sun, creator and illustrator of DreaminGirl and founder of blackpeach.

They are moody and playful and love to camouflage themselves by changing shape and color.
Series 1 has a limited run of 500 of each of the four colors (blue, pink, yellow and green). Each plush is 15" long by 9" tall and patterned on both sides symmetrically. Look for them to retail around $24.99.
