Brian Castleforte’s Handmade Plush Line


Brian Castleforte is selling 4 handmade plush toys (each somewhere around a half a foot in height).  Read what he has to say about them below (from his blog):

So I
thought I would try my hand at making plush toys too! And I have found
that I really enjoy making them, with the help of my lovely wife,
Linda. And so I ended up with a set of four, strange little visitors
from other worlds, who are hell bent on the destruction of the human
race. But only when they don't get enough love and affection. Because
they really do love us, they just aren't very good at dealing with
rejection. So anyways, here they are! And you can find out more about
them, and even get one of your very own if you like, at But We Love You! I hope you like them, they love you!

Ezeart and Kandycore’s Handmade Plush


The Swedish artists ezeart and Kandycore have sent photos of their handmade plush creations.  Ezeart's 2 figures are known as ”Happiisad Family” & ”Weelii”
Happiisad will drop a tear for you when you’re sad, so you don’t have to. And you have to hug Weelii before he rolls away!  Kandycore's Smile Balloon's logo is "Say it with a smile".  The figures should be available soon at GorillamART.


Sophisticated Sasquatches


Everyone loves plushies...and at least I am a big fan of Bigfoot and Sasquatches.  Maybe it was the 452 times I watched Harry and the Hendersons as a kid.  Rosey from Sophisticated Sasquatches has sent news of the launch of her website.  She describes the line of 12" Sasquatch plushies (made of fur and felt) as follows:

The story behind them is that there's some sasquatches out there that
have a huge urge to go into urban areas and try to learn how to be
cultured. Unfortunately their love for eating garbage, loud music and
roughhousing often gets in the way of them trying to enjoy the finer
points in life.
