Recent Custom Work - Launchpad Toys

I met Launchpad Toys during the Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco, and we had a great time talking about games, apps, plush toys & huge, jointed dolls. Fast forward a couple of months, and I've finally finished some of the largest and most complex plush I've attempted. The arms, legs & heads on these 18"-24" characters are fully jointed, so they can be posed like action figures. They are based on characters created by Launchpad, and go along with the app that they created. Toontastic is great, because it provides kids with jointed characters that they can animate and tell stories with. It's like a digital puppet show that can be shared with family and friends. How cool is that? Now, it's time to check out the final plush toys below.

This is their logo.

I love his little rocket booster feet!

And here's a character called Mr. Jinx:

I added elastic bands to the back of his hands so that he can hold things like plush bananas:

Happy September - Sneaky Foxes!

This month's free desktop wallpaper calendar features a pair of sneaky Zooguu foxes chasing each other through the woods. Here in Northeastern MA, we've started to see the first leaves fall! I crunched a few as I walked up the front steps the other day and thought that it was finally time to create a woodland themed calendar. Enjoy these fun foxes during the month of September!
