REVIEW: Deglingos – Kitschos The Fox
Deglingos (deh-GLING-goes): common noun. Animalos molto funnios and muy crazios. A uniques species of contagiously quirky animals, the Deglingos speak their own language which consists of finishing many words with 'os'. Made from over 50 different fabrics and designed in France.
You've heard “sly as a fox”? No! Kitschy as a fox! No lie, all classic coolos for me – like James Bondos. A little bit megalomaniac and 100% seventies suavos – I am Kitschos the Fox!

Each Deglingos plush comes with a small, booklet-like swing tag. The book features photos and mini biographies (in English and French) of all of the characters in the series.
The Deglingos plush line is fairly unique in the world of designer plush toys. Each animal character is a patchwork of various materials. It's not surprising that the eyes don't match or the inside of the ears are different fabrics. Since the Deglingos are also targeted towards children, they have various textures to those fabrics (such as a burlap bottom).
I think out of all of the Deglingos characters I have reviewed, Kitschos might rank at the top. A few Deglingos have a Dr. Frankenstein's monster look to them. They're a mishmash of fabrics that sometimes don't mesh, but Kitschos definitely works.
I'm a little partial to the Fox due to his overall orange color. Some of the items I like include his trendy 1970's style vest and his tail. What's great about the tail is that it shows off 6 or 7 different fabric...oh...and those tattered pieces just make it look puffy.
As far a pricing, $29.99 sounds like a fair price. A lot of 12” tall designer plush sell around $20, but I think you pay a slight premium for the Deglingos due to the various fabrics used in the production.
