Prior to DesignerCon, my knowledge of Yetis & Friends' work was limited to what was available on their Etsy shop. I think their most iconic toys are their yeti plush trophies, which, as one might expect, are plush heads of cute yeti monsters that you can mount on your wall. It sure beats a stuffed fish, right?
Upon visiting the group's DCon booth, I learned Yetis & Friends is also in the webisode producing business. Their show, Shark Bites, utilizes impressive-looking puppets that play on the fact that are toys (as opposed to The Muppets, which takes great effort to hide their characters' seams and the like). The web show's episodes are expanded through comics, allowing the characters and their world to reach fans in two different mediums. Here's hoping plushes are next on the list. I wouldn't mind a Spielberg the shark of my very own.
