Toynami's Skelanimals are looking for a home with that special someone to care for and love them, but not just anyone. They like people that have a warm heart, after all, they’re just bones. They need you to keep them warm and cozy. Snuggling is their favorite thing to do, especially when you watch a scary movie. The 9" plush line consists of 5 dolls - Andy, Dax, Jack, Kit and Marcy.
Plastic and Plush and Uglydolls are teaming up to give away 3 Little Uglys - Wage, Jeero and Ox. So what kind of contest is it this time? We're asking you to post a photo of your pet in our forum. What if you don't have a pet? Well a photo of your favorite plush pet will work! Get your submissions in by 12:01 AM EST on Monday April 17th, because that's when the contest ends.

Jared from Carnival Cartoons has sent word of the next character from The Carneys line. Here's a sneak peek at Harriet Carney - The Horrendously Hairy Housewife. She is still subject to change, but the anticipate sculpting to begin later this month. She's pretty hot...wives might get jealous!
One of the most sought after Uglydolls in recent memory would have to be the Red Tooth Wedgehead. With only 200 of them created, they were divided up into groups of 4 and sent out to 50 different shops around the world.
The RTWs have been popping up at random shops for a few months now. A number of places are giving them away since 4 limited edition Uglies would sell out like hotcakes (never really understood what that meant...are hotcakes big sellers?). He's only available in the regular sized version and not as a mini.
I had to ask David Horvath exactly what was up with this alternate Wedgehead plush, and why was he so limited. “When Wedgehead was a wee prototype here at our studio back in 2003, the first factory sample came back with red teeth. Somehow, a photo of that red toothed Wedgehead ended up on many web retailer's websites, causing much confusion.”
