About

Who or What is Sheelah?

The Sheelah Vinyl Toy is a do-it-yourself three-dimensional artists' canvas with a sleek design and a feminine attitude and silhouette. Most blank art toys have a very squat and blocky shape that is not always suitable for the design of a female character.  The Sheelah Vinyl Toy is an answer to the problem of creating a female character that looks, well, female!

The Sheelah Vinyl Toy is a platform for your creative ideas that cannot be met with the current and existing crop of vinyl toys in the market today.  If you wanted to create a character that has the look and bearing of a queen, the appeal of a secret agent, or the allure of an Amazon warrior, then the Sheelah Vinyl Toy platform can give your character the feminine appeal that it needs.

This artist's platform toy will be 8" tall, and made of white rotocast and injection molded vinyl. It has a minimum of 3 points of articulation: 1 at the head, and 1 at each shoulder. In the factory redesign process there will be other joints likely added at the waist and near the elbow to allow for proper manufacture.

This Kickstarter project intends to raise funds for a initial production run of at least 300 Sheelah Vinyl Toys that will be packaged in their own custom-printed window boxes, and then shipped to California from the manufacturer in China.
