Something adorable spotted at booth #3102!

New York Comic Con rages on and we have Brian Szabelski and Andres Cerrato combing the show floor for all things awesome. And, boy, have they found something in the quirky and cuddly plushes at Phil Barbato's booth (#3102). I can't believe I am missing out on seeing such amazing toys up close!

Phil brought eight varieties of plushes with him. There is the whiskerbear (US$25), who resembles a fleece gummi bear will a big ol' fuzzy beard. The baby ape (US$32) looks like he is a relative of the yeti, all covered in fuzz with a heart-shaped chest. The baby octopus (US$37) is, well, a cute octopus plush with the added bonus of an adorable overbite. The baby yak (US$44) has white, curvy horns and big, red nose. The baby viking octopus (US$57) has the horns of a yak and the beard of the whiskerbear added onto the baby octopus's body. It is too cute for words! The little ape (US$65), octopus (US$65), and viking octopus (US$85) are larger versions of the babies. 

Can't make it to the con but absolutely need one (or more) of these plushes? Thankfully, Phil has an Etsy shop. I know one of those Viking Octopus plushes is going on my holiday list!
