2005 Toy Awards: Best Plush Figure
2005 gave us a number of new plush lines and it introduced us to some new characters from several well established lines. We chose our 3 favorite plushies (well...one might not actually be a plush) of the past year.
Thomas Han's trippy artwork came to life with his Cosmic Quigly plush line. With three super limited versions, this plush from Wheaty Wheat might have been the year's best kept secret.
The Uglydoll family added another member this past February. David Horvath launched the Ugly Dog plush right around last year's Toy Fair. It was the first Ugly to have two color variants - pink and orange.
Hmm...are Circus Punks considered plush? Well, they definitely aren't vinyl and they do have stuffing...so they fall under this category (in my book). Even though there were so many amazing designs, Sket One's Eggster Punk stands out as on of the year's best.
Winner: Thomas Han's Cosmic Quigly
This plush didn't nearly receive the amount of attention it deserved. With the applied vinyl detailing and super soft material, it was the most unique plush of 2005. I'm not sure if there are any available (or where they might be purchased from) but Wheaty Wheat did have a number of these available at SDCC.
