After helping out with Jonathan Rosenberg's Scenes from a Multiverse Bunny plush Kickstarter (which were successful, by the way), Squishable has taken the plunge and started their own funding campaign on the site. The goal? A Shiba Inu Squishable plush! A worthy cause, indeed! The Shiba Inu was a very close runner-up in a recent contest to see what the next puppy-themed plush would be. The Corgi won but the votes were incredibly close: 11845 to 10233. And thus, Squishable has decided to leave it up to the fans to help the Shiba Inu have its day. I think its a nice idea, really, and maybe it will open up the possibility for more squishy options, if this campaign is successful.
So for those disappointed that your beloved Hachiko (that was what you would name her, wasn't it?) didn't win, go out and make this a reality! The goal has almost been reached, with a little bit more than US$1000 needed and 16 days left to go. Head on over to the project's Kickstarter page to see pledge rewards and their corresponding levels.
