KICKSTARTER: Forest Friend Fox Plush

Natural Pop has announced and launched a new Kickstarter project that's looking to raise funds to produce the Forest Friend Fox Plush. Based on Natural Pop's best selling charm - a minimalist fox - and the handmade plush version of it, the plush is being manufactured in order to create an even better fox plush that can meet demand.

The Forest Friend Fox Plush is available beginning at the $25.00 funding level. There are other rewards - including the charm - available at other funding levels.

This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by .

As I say with all Kickstarter project I post about. 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 all Kickstarters with caution.

REVIEW: Finn Balor Bleacher Creature

Bleacher Creatures have come a long way since we last reviewed their cuddly plush creations on Plastic and Plush. Currently, they produce their 10-inch tall Bleacher Creature plushies based on the following licenses – WWE, NHL, and NBA. For this review, we’ve received a Demon Finn Balor Bleacher Creature to check out.

First off, this is the first time we’re using our new 360-degree view video to show off a collectible. You can check out the Balor Bleacher Creature from all angles.

If you didn’t realize yet, Finn Balor is a WWE wrestler (or sports entertainer). He normally comes to the ring as a normal looking (unpainted) dude, but he occasionally lets the Demon come out. When that happens, he more than often shows up in the paint scheme you see here.

I can see why Bleacher Creatures features this plush in their WWE marketing. Balor’s one of the more interesting characters and the only one who’s just not a guy in a shirt. He would be a lot less interesting if it was just regular old Finn Balor minus the Demon makeup.

While kids love them – my 5-year-old son swiped this Finn Balor as soon as he saw it – the Bleacher Creatures plush line is made with collectors in mind. They’re produced with flat feet, which allows you to display your plush next to your plastic collectibles. So, you could put the Finn Balor Bleacher Creature next to the Mattel Elite Series figure. No problem.

Plus, the entire line looks a lot like the players/wrestlers they are trying to represent. That’s a challenge, especially considering these plush. It’s difficult to get a plush toy to look like a real person. But Bleacher Creatures has done it.

It appears that all aspects of each Bleacher Creature’s face are unique. They have different nose shapes, different eye styles with correct colors, various mouths. You can even check out Enzo Amore’s unique two-tone spikey hairdo.

In addition to Balor, Bleacher Creatures has a number of other WWE wrestlers in their line. There’s about 10 different characters, including The Rock and John Cena. Each plush runs $19.99. I’m of the opinion that $19.99 is a decent price for a 10-inch tall licensed plush.
