Tomopop Review: inki-drop's Tentatrio plushes

Tomopop Review: Hashtag Collectibles' Grumpy Cat puppet
by Natalie Kipper

The internet sure does love cats and I can totally understand the sentiment. Lil Bub, Colonel Meow, and of course, Grumpy Cat (also known as Tardar Sauce) never cease to entertain. Being a fan of said kitties as well as a plush enthusiast, I am naturally on the eternal hunt for good plush representation of the feline celebrities. You can imagine my excitement when I learned that Hashtag Collectibles, makers of my beloved Blobfish plush (reviewed), had made a Grumpy Cat puppet. I simply had to try one out for myself.

Read on to see what I thought of the new toy!

Tomopop Review: Monster Factory's Margot the Unicorn
by Natalie Kipper

In the past, the majority of Monster Factory's plushes have been, well, monsters. In their upcoming Kickstarter venture, the studio is branching out into the realm of mythological critters. Fittingly named "The Mythicals," the first run (should they be funded) will feature plushes of a dragon, Cthulhu, and a unicorn. They all look darling but the unicorn in particular spoke to me. Who wouldn't want a ropy-poly fantasy horse-thing? Plus, it's name is Margot.

Suffice to say, I was more than a little pumped to check Margot out in person, and I can't wait to share what I discovered with you!
