UglyDolls: My 15 Years of Reporting on Ugly

Way back in 2004, I started a website called Toytoons. One of the first toy reviews I ever did was based on Sun-Min Kim and David Horvath's plush UglyDoll series. It was one of the reasons I got into the indie/designer toy scene in the first place. (Also, I think Alita Friedman needs some major recognition as she busted her tail for UglyDolls) You can check out the 36 pages of UglyDolls posts I have on Plastic and Plush - going back to 2005.

Now, 15 years later, the film version of these unique creations is being shown on the silver screen. And while I haven't yet seen the movie, it appears the film's message is similar to what David + Sun-Min have been conveying for years. In today's climate, a little positivity is a good thing.
