Vicious Plush looks to get Kickstarted

Vicious Plush

Natalie and Natasha (NatsToys) have created the Vicious Plush line and taken their production hopes to Kickstarter. As with all Kickstarter projects, they have several funding levels available. The first level where one of the three plush toys (Tear Bear, BaBOO!, and Hissy Puss) is available is at $35.00.

The Kickstarter project will only be funded if at least $25,000 is pledged by Monday November 4th 2013 at 1:26AM ET. But before you decide, you should really check out the below video. I think the most unintentionally funny moment is when a few kids are putting on a puppet show with an angry, bloody bear.
