What We Thought

My 11-year-old European stepdaughter had never seen an Ugly Doll before and fell instantly in love.

Why They’ll Want It
Ugly Dolls are about the cutest nonliving things on earth. And they’re cuddly! – Alison Marek, 6/30/08

Abima by PRETTY UGLY LLCName: Abima
Company: PRETTY UGLY LLC
Age: All Ages
Price: $20.00
Category: Plush

What Is It?
Abima is part of the award-winning collection of “ugly” plush created by Pretty Ugly. There’s not a whole lot to Abima, but his own story and personality — not to mention his look of bewilderment — make him intriguing.

What We Thought
Uglydolls are fun because they’re unique, and they’re empowering people all over to love and accept something atypical, which is, of course, a cool thing to do and a trend unto itself. Abima and the other dolls boast huggable bodies (cuddly and flat, kind of like a pillow), quality fabric and attractive colors. There are smaller-sized plush and keychains, too, so customers can have their picks.

Why They’ll Want It
In short, Uglydolls are still popular (see TDmonthly’s Top-10 Most-Wanted Plush), so anyone interested in stuffed creatures, home decorating or out-of-the-ordinary gifts should be steered toward Abima. Perhaps the best thing about Uglydolls is that they don’t just belong in the toy box. A contemporary color palette and soft appeal give them just as much ownership on a couch or bookshelf, where they can exude personality all day long. — Julie L. Jones 7/30/07

Uglydog by PRETTY UGLY LLCName: Uglydog
Company: PRETTY UGLY LLC
Age: All Ages
Price: $24.00
Category: Plush

What Is It?
Developed by artists David Horvath and Sun Min-Kim, this irresistible 12” to 14” tall hot pink plush creature looks like a Cyclops caught in a nuclear meltdown. The “dog” has four feet and a tail, all in a row, which look more like the outline of a clenched foot than individual appendages. Made of a soft fabric akin to the inside of a fleece sweatshirt, the doll is easy to squeeze and hard to put down. Uglydoll describes the character as “the ultimate pet” because “what he really likes to do is stand on his tail and live out his big dream … to be just like you!!!”

What We Thought
Eccentric and ugly, as the name implies, this ridiculous little dog makes a fine companion. Uglydoll knows how to craft unusual plush figures that speak to a girl’s inner freak. Who wouldn’t love a deformed, fuzzy hot pink stuffed dog? For the girl who has everything, from stuffed wombat to millipede, this plush “man’s best friend” will complete her stuffed animal collection. That is, until she sees one of Uglydoll’s other bizarre designer plush creations …

Why They’ll Want It
Uglydoll knows how to market their designer toys, that’s for sure. One look at the list of celebrities who claim an infatuation for the peculiar plush line will have any kid — age irrelevant — asking for one from their local toy retailer. The list includes Paris Hilton, “American Idol” finalist Constantine Maroulis and Robin Williams, to name a few. The dolls are even sold at hip spots like Barney’s New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, so that even if little ones don’t know what they are yet, their chi-chi aunts and uncles will no doubt introduce them to the dolls before long. And once one kid on the playground has one, well, say no more.
