About

Our super soft SLUSH PUPPiE® plush Pup needs a cuddle so we can bring him to life!

Every reward for a pledge of just £10 (or more) get's that Pup when it is ready and we will personalise for Free so your Pup will be unique!

That's right as an added bonus we are now offering FREE PERSONALISATION to all pledges. This means your Pup will be one of kind because all our SLUSH PUPPiE® Pups are hand finished by expert creatives at Love Bomb Cushions!

Love Bomb Cushions want to create 3 sizes of the softest cuddliest, snuggliest, Pup on the planet and we need your help. The Pup comes in 3 sizes;

  • Medium - 37 cm Tall
  • Large - 47 cm Tall
  • Extra Large (Giant) - 70 cm Tall

Pledges range from as little as £10 for a Super Early Bird Pledge. Family Packs of all 3 Pups are also available to Early Bird Supporters.

The Pup has been designed to capture all the features of the character we know and love. The embroidery is 1st class with detailed stitching and vibrant colours which bring stand out against his delicious fur coat.

Detailed from head to paw the Pup's embroidery creates sparkling eyes that shine like the icy drink we all know and love. We all remember the fruitiest flavours and the inevitable Brain Freeze as we chugged slush to reach the slurp at the bottom.

Who can forget the famous t'shirt? Each pup wears his favourite colour, blue of course, made from luxurious velour that makes a cuddle from him the most magical feeling in the world.

Knowing only too well that once you pick him up you won't want to put him down. We have selected the softest luxurious fur coat which makes him simply irresistible and a perfect companion all night long!

You can imagine how excited we are to get the opportunity to work with the SLUSH PUPPiE® brand to develop their very first officially licensed plush range! Kids and adults alike can remember the refreshingly cool taste of SLUSH PUPPiE® on a warm summers day or the brain freeze you got the first time you drank one too quickly. Now you can own a SLUSH PUPPiE® which won’t melt away in the sun!

Thank you so much for taking the time to consider backing my very first Kickstarter campaign. Like many growing up in the 1970's and 80's the iconic SLUSH PUPPiE® Pup was a huge part of childhood, nearly as much as florescent leg warmers, dodgy perms and huge shoulder pads!  

A Walk Down Memory Lane!
A Walk Down Memory Lane!

Lucky for me, there is no actual evidence of me committing the immortal sins of the latter so I can relax! The cool crunchiness of the ice, vibrant colours, sweet smell and taste of the flavours, and even the satisfying sound of the slush hitting the cup called my name three times weekly.

The Pup Litter!

Being tasked with recreating a part of history was no small feat, I knew from the start the only way to do the brand justice was to create a plush version of the dog but as our name suggests, yep you got it, we make cushions! When you are finished hugging your SLUSH PUPPiE® he makes a great display piece or bedtime buddy!

Bedtime Buddy!

So to say I was nervous would be the understatement of the century. I had little experience in this market but plenty of experience chugging slush....does that count I wonder? All I knew was that growing up as a child, I would have loved to have owned a super soft SLUSH PUPPiE® Pup of my very own.

SLUSH PUPPiE® is loved by billions of people worldwide, so I thought I would let you know of some cool fun slush facts:

  • Have you ever wondered why the Raspberry flavoured Slush is blue? Simple, it’s to make sure customers don’t confuse them with the red cherry flavour of course.
  • Let's talk flavours! It started with only 4, cherry, grape, orange and lemon/lime. Now it has amassed over 20 flavours, my personal favourite still has to be Blue Raspberry! 
  • Just how popular are these? Prepare yourself to be shocked, a staggering 175 billion cups have been sold since it's incarnation in Europe alone....that's a lot of brain freeze! 
Blue Raspberry Goodness!
Blue Raspberry Goodness!

Thank you for reading and taking the time to get to the bottom. Its time for me to stop talking now and let you pledge so you can own your very own SLUSH PUPPiE ® Pup. 

 So I am banking on all those who chugged slush in equal measure to me, and their off spring who do so now, loving my creation and pledging....pretty please 🙏

Risks and challenges

I am pleased to announce that we have had full sign off from SLUSH PUPPiE® for the products so they meet with their high standards and are happy for us to go to production once our Kickstarter Campaign ends!

Our factory are one of the best for the plush toy market and supply lots of high profile High Street Toy names. They have been amazing to work with and we have a full audit on them so know they meet all standards required ethically and technically. They inform us that if we order in September we should receive the stock by the latest March but we are hoping for February.

Our Pups are fully toy tested so you have peace of mind knowing your new friend is super safe.
