Geared For Imagination distributes Les Deglingos – a unique species of contagiously quirky animals that speak their own language consisting of words finished with "os". We got our hands on Molos the Lobster. So, what’s the story behind this crazy crustacean?
I am the tough guy of the group! Don’t mess with me or I might give you a good pinchos! Hey, don’t get me wrong… beneath my tough shell lies a soft heart that beats for Pikos. I am just so mados about her and wish my claws weren’t so rough, because I would love to arrange her colorful spikes. Some crustacean I am!

The Deglingos tag is the same for each character. It’s actually more of a booklet than a tag (three tags folded into a book). There’s a bio for each of the 10 characters (in English and French), as well as photos of the plushies and a summary of the line.
The Deglingos line is a favorite of mine. Each plush uses a boatload of materials (apparently 50 different types in the line). And looking at Molos, it appears that there’s some corduroy and shoelaces in there. Oh…and each Deglingo has a burlap bottom. It’s all of these materials that make them great for kids – which is why there are several baby and discovery lines featuring Les Deglingos.
The Molos the Lobster plush has something that not many other plushies have – articulation. The arms spin around 360 degrees, and they’ll hold a pose. But I think the best part of the plush is the abundance of antennules that hang down like little mustaches. Six of them are made of the polka dot material, while the other two are shoelaces.
This is a great example of the Deglingos line. Molos has several different colors, fabrics and materials that give him a patched together look.
