Charlie The Angry Elephant Figure by Angel Once & UVD Toys
A 4" Vinyl Designer Toy Inspired by Angel Once's Iconic Elephant Character!
Welcome to our Kickstarter! Angel Once and UVD Toys are proud to present, Charlie the Angry Elephant. Behind the scenes we have been developing this awesome prototype for almost a year and would love to see it produced as a vinyl toy.
For those unfamiliar with Kickstarter, this project is all or nothing. The toy will only get produced with your help. If the goal isn’t met, the toy unfortunately will not get made. You will not be able to buy it later, it will never be in stores. We need your support to bring Charlie to life and help Angel make this amazing toy!
To learn more about the project, please check out the details below.
It has been Angel's dream to bring to life Charlie as a production vinyl toy since the character's inception. We have worked with sculptor Oasim Karmieh to develop this 3D printed 4" prototype of what our production vinyl figure will look like. The 3D renders below show you the OG Pink and Kickstarter Exclusive Green prototypes for the figure. Angel has also painted a 3D printed prototype to give you a good idea what a hand painted custom would look like.
Charlie the Angry Elephant stands 4 inches tall and will be produced in vinyl.
The $10,750 goal for the project will go towards covering:
- Production and shipping costs
- Backer rewards
- Kickstarter fees
Charlie was designed by Angel Once, sculpted by Oasim Karmieh, and will be produced by UVD Toys. This project will be made in China through a reputable factory that we have a working relationship with. We promise to strive for the highest quality possible!

Risks and challenges
While this isn’t our first ever Kickstarter or production toy, we can honestly say that some hiccups are bound to happen. However, with our experience in production we have come to realize that expecting the unexpected is just part of the process. With that said, we have a great working relationship with our factory in China and will work out any issues in a timely manner while also keeping backers up to date with everything that is going on. Once the project is funded and the Kickstarter has ended we will give the factory the okay to start and all rewards will be shipped once we have the completed pieces in the U.S.
Expected timeline of project once funded:
- 2 to 3 months to complete molds and approve test samples
- 3 months for production
- 1 month for shipping from China to USA
- Shipping to backers approximately in July
