REVIEW: FluffyBadBad Chompin’ Plush
Jordan Owen and OhNo!Doom have re-released the original Chompin' plush character from the FluffyFriends lineup – FluffyBadBad.
FluffyBadBad doesn't like to be told what to do, and is always gnawing it's way into trouble. They are known to use their powers of ultra cuteness to draw you in, and then chomp their way into your heart (not literally). BadBad is the main reason why we must be cautions of cute wielding critters… because BadBad is proof that no matter how cute n’ cuddly something is, it can and most definitely can still chomp ya!
Artist: Jordan Owen
Material: Plush with working plastic jaw/teeth

Edition Size: 500 pieces
FluffyBadBad comes in clear plastic bag with the FluffyFriends logo on the front. It's probably so your pin doesn't get away. The tag is attached with a safety pin. It's a generic tag that's used by the FluffyFriends line and doubles as a sticker.
Way back in 2006, the original version of FluffyBadBad won our Plush Toy of the Year Award. That one was a little different...err...a little more dangerous. Rather than a plastic jaw system, the original FluffyBadBad used metal that was painted white. It had a death grip.
The 2011 version of FluffyBadBad is fairly similar to the original. He's predominantly black and white. There is that slightly asymmetrical pink rear end. And the eyes are embroidered, as is the behind tattoo.
The jaw is made of white plastic, with a pink mouth inside there. There are a pair of holes in BadBad's back. This is where you put your fingers to make use of the chompin' action. It's the only area where I have a slight complaint. It feels like either the holes are either too close together or the handles on the plastic mouth mechanism might be a little too long.
Also, if you're in to displaying your plush toys, you'll be happy to know that FluffyBadBad has an ample amount of 'beans' in both of his feet. He also includes a clear plastic 'bone' that you can place in his mouth to show off those choppers.
OVERALL: I was a fan of the original FluffyBadBad when it dropped four and a half years ago. But Jordan and OhNo!Doom took that plush character and improved on it (hey...it was great back then). I think going to the plastic mouth system – like 2007's FluffyYukYuk – is a giant step forward. He grew a little over an inch...is a little fluffier...and is priced perfectly.
