REVIEW: Uglydolls – Tutulu

ugly tutulu 01

Background

Our last Uglydoll review for 2010 might be the one with the most difficult name to say – Tutulu. It's also one of the more colorful Ugly designs from the creative duo - David + Sun-Min – behind the Uglydoll line.

Tutulu and his sister Mij are always getting into trouble. They get all A’s, they clean their room before asked to, they say “please” and “thank you” all time, and they always tell the truth. See? I know, right? Something MUST be up, totally. So perhaps you wouldn’t mind keeping an eye on them? Tutulu is obviously fond of you, as he’s used his psychic powers to call you to him. “Read my tag, read my tag.” Tutulu likes to think of himself as a sort of fortune teller. If his ears wobble when you pick him up, it means you’re going to have a lot of good luck. When his feet wiggle? Uh, that means “Good luck pal.” Which sorta sounds the same? Anyway, Tutulu sees a bright future for the both of you involving health, wealth, and cake please.

The green tag features the above reprinted background story of Tutulu. There are also a pair of illustrated versions of the Tutulu character on the front and inside of the tag.

Our Opinion

I knew Tutulu looked familiar. Since Tutulu and Mij are brother and sister, respectively, it's only natural that they look a little alike. And they do...from the neck down. Above that, Mij looks a little buggy, while Tutulu has a nose and smaller ears.

Tutulu is one of the more colorful Uglydolls that we've come across. That's because he has the craziest teeth we've seen on an Ugly. One bright green tooth and one bright pink tooth against a blue plush body looks great. The various colors really stand out.

The stitching quality is great...although out of the 100+ different sized Uglydolls I've reviewed, I've never come across a substandard sewing job. It's also perfect pillow soft...for napping.

OVERALL: I just love all of the bright colors that you're getting in Tutulu. Usually we see one, maybe two, bright colors on an individual Uglydoll. But Tutulu is rocking out three. He's like a pack of highlighter markers.
