Chimeras Mix 'n' Match toys are a new Kickstarter project

Aug 10 // Natalie Kipper    @PoogieNya

I love plushes (as a great many of you know). But, not only that, I love supporting aspiring plush artists. So, that is why it is a pleasure to spread the word about a new Kickstarter project about a clever plush toy series called "Chimeras," from Walrus Toys. And, no, they don't center around the Greek mythological beast but rather the ability to mix and match parts from different plush animals to customize new adorable creations. The animals will be sold in pairs, the monkey with the bunny and the elephant with the bat. The elephant/bat combo definitely has my eye; The idea of a little animal swapping out ears with a huge one is hilarious. 

According to the Kickstarter page, the extremities are attached via a ball and socket locking mechanism that was custom designed for these toys. Speaking of the Kickstarter page, you have to check out the promotional video posted there. It is freaking hilarious, especially the outtakes at the end. The project has so far earned US$9873 of their US$20000 goal with 27 days to go. If you want to pledge money (and get some sweet rewards) or learn more about the Chimeras line of toys, head over to the project page
