There hasn't been much to report on the Lubies front. Unfortunately, those cute, little softball-sized plush animals appear to be no more. You'll still be able to pick up some of the already produced designs...like that sad pug above. But following founder Michael Perry's unfortunate passing in late 2010, we haven't heard anything from Rocket USA.
The Rocket USA and Lubieland websites haven't been updated since September 2010. And we recently received an email from First & Main touting new low wholesale prices on all Lubies.
Unfortunately, this is all a part of the toy business. Companies come and go (often in droves). But there are several layers of sadness that go along with the Lubies story.
