Kickstarter: Jelly the Robot Plush

Artist Selina Briggs, of The Jelly Empire, has created a Kickstarter project with the goal to get her Jelly the Robot Plush into production. She's been producing the plush by hand, and, at Cons, they've sold out as quickly as she can produce them. So the goal is mass production of these 9-inch tall by 9-inch wide robot plushies.

The Jelly the Robot Plush is available beginning at the $25.00 funding level. Of course, there are plenty of other items to entice you to back the project - stickers, a keychain, a mug, and a tote bag. The project will only be funded if at least $7,000.00 is pledged by Wednesday, June 1st 2016 at 1:01PM ET.

Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back with caution.

Kickstarter: Dinosaur Egg Farm

Artist Benjamin Aguilar recently released a Kickstarter project entitled: Dinosaur Eggs. He explains the project below.

The idea stemmed from a deep desire to help the environment. I’ve created adorable plush dinosaurs, who are visibly dead, but in a super cute way. I hope to use these dolls as a way to reach the youth in order to raise awareness for animal extinction and wildlife preservation. I’m hoping the fun and unique approach will resonate with children more effectively than present techniques. 

There are a pair of dinosaurs available - Tina the Triceratops and Tyrone the Tyrannosaurus. And the Dinosaur Egg Farm has funding levels starting at $15.00 (that's for a single egg). This project is already fully funded, and the Kickstarter campaign will end on .

Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back with caution.

Adopt A Plush – Save A Bunny

Easter-Bunny-Flat-Bonnie-Adopt-A-Plush-Group

Flat Bonnie has created an Easter campaign named Adopt A Plush - Save A Bunny. The plush series includes a baby Duck, Chick, and three new Bunny colors. for Easter. These new Flatties are made with premium luxe fleece in soft pastel colors. Each plush comes with an adoption certificate, button and ribbon. They run $23.00 each. The Adopt A Plush - Save A Bunny campaign will be available through April 2016.

About the cause:

Every year, soon after Easter, shelters and rescues are overwhelmed with abandoned animals that were given as Easter gifts to children. Most of these Easter babies will not live to see their first birthday. Many will die from injuries, neglect or be dumped at a park where they will become prey. Others are abandoned at shelters where they will be euthanized. No-kill rescues are overrun every year with unwanted "Easter Bunnies". Live animals are not toys for children. Adopt a plush animal this year instead. Teach a child about adoption and help an animal rescue at the same time. A portion of all Flat Bonnie sales is donated to bunny/animal rescue organizations monthly. As you probably already know, Flat Bonnie's mission is to raise awareness of abandoned animals, and the importance of adopting. Live animals are not toys for children.

If you're looking to get in the door with a Worry plush, the $11.00 pledge level will get you a basic one. The project will be funded on Thursday February 18th 2016 at 3:22 PM EST.
