REVIEW: WorryWoo Monsters – Twitch

Worry Woos Twitch 560


Andi Green, the author and artist behind The WorryWoo Monsters' series of books, has released her latest WorryWoo plush – Twitch. Twitch, The Monster of Frustration, jumps right off of the pages of The Very Frustrated Monster.

Twitch the adorable curly horned monster always lets frustration get the better of him. He tries hard to do everything right, but when something doesn’t go his way he stomps, yells and quickly gives up! If only Twitch could see that giving up is not the answer. Maybe you can offer Twitch some positive ways to deal with his frustration.

Our Opinion

Twitch is the seventh WorryWoo Monster to be released as a plush toy. Each one has been taken straight from the pages of one of Andi Green's six illustrated books.

It's always been very difficult to compare the plush WorryWoos to Andi's illustrated versions. The characters in her illustrated books feature distorted proportions, such as very large heads and thin necks. Those elements wouldn't work for a plush...unless you like a floppy headed toy. But they still need to stay as close to the source material as possible.

The WorryBug has two tags. The first is the basic tag featuring The Worry Woos logo. The second tag actually doubles as a bookmark (it's thicker than a normal tag). It has a photo of the plush on the front, with an illustrated WorryBug and short bio on the back.

Our Opinion

Even though you might not be able to tell, The WorryBug is in scale with his pal Wince. You can see him with Wince in the book image below, and they're very similar in plush form. This smaller size might also attribute to why The WorryBug runs $12.99 (other WorryWoos run $21.50).
