The Game of Thrones TV show hasn't revealed much about the three-eyed raven, but it has played a significant role in the Song of Ice and Fire books so far. I have a feeling we'll be seeing more of this one now that the new se...

Tomopop Review: Blobfish plush by Hashtag Collectibles

Apr 06 // Natalie Kipper
Plush name: BlobfishPlush maker: Hashtag CollectiblesRetail price: US$39.99Available at: ThinkGeek To get our feet wet, let's talk about the tag. The 3 1/2-inch square is made of a hefty cardboard. The front is minimalistic, simply reading "Blobfish: Endangeredly Adorable" at the top with the phrase "Hashtag Collectibles: Designer Toys, Inspired by the Internet" at the bottom.  The tag's back bares a picture of the Blobfish plush being cuddled by a smiling young woman. In regards to the plush, I can completely understand her grin.   Both the front and back of the tag have a matte finish. Now, without further ado, meet the Blobfish fish. Isn't that face just precious? Its eyes are big, plastic safety eyes. The surface of them is nice and shiny. They reflect the light quite a bit and almost make it look alive (well, a girl can dream, right?). Its lips are made of a different fabric than his main body. Where the body is a slightly shaggy, boa-like fabric, the lips feel more like a thick flannel. They are stuffed firmly but not so much that I would worry about its seams. This plush has quite a memorable profile. Its "nose" is four inches-long and made of the same fluffy material as the rest of its main body. You could actually hold the plush by it (but doing so would be a tad mean, I think). The lips are so plump that they appear to poke up from the Blobfish's "face," adding to the plush's personality. The Blobfish plush is definitely on the larger side of the plush size spectrum. I mean, its body (not counting the nose or fins) measures a freaking 20 inches long. And its tapered cylindrical shape makes it a great cuddle buddy. No, seriously. Forget those body pillows with scantily-clad women on them. Go with the Blobfish. You won't regret it. Its fins are made of the same flannel-like fabric as its lips. They are lightly stuffed and just flop around. The Blobfish's pectoral fins are smaller then its caudal fin (the fish's tail to you landlubbers). You could probably fit both of the side ones into the back one. Fun fact: Blobfish plushes love love love to cosplay. True story. I have photographic evidence! Here is my precious plush trying on my Dejikko cap. Who knew it was a fan of Di Gi Charat? My Bitey Bat hat (made by plush artist, Anna the Red) fit the cutie even better. It sort of looks like the Blobfish is under attack.  Finally, here the plush is kicking it old school-style, rocking the backwards baseball cap. Few people can pull that off nowadays. You go, Blobfish! And there you have it, the one and only Blobfish plush! I really love its simple overall design. The plush may just be a pair of eyes, fluffy body, a giant nose, puffy lips, and a set of fins but each part is done so well. You can't help but fall in love. Head over fins in love, in fact. Sorry, it had to be done. [A big thank-you to ThinkGeek for providing us with sample!]
