About

Let us introduce you to Tear Bear (left), BaBOO! (middle) and Hissy Puss (right)...

The Toys

The stuffed toys seen in the video and images shown here are all approximately 12" in size and weigh less than a pound. The entire line up of Vicious Plush toys will come with glow-in-the-dark eyes, some will have scars and a blood feature. 

                                                                         ------

                                                                         ------

The Process & Manufacturing

We have teamed up with a manufacturer that has 7 years of experience exclusively in the plush toy industry, we have worked together for the past 6 months producing the prototypes of the toys that you see here. Below you will see some of the production steps we took to create the line of Vicious Plush toys, here is how Tear Bear came to life:

Check out how the glow-in-the-dark eyes illuminate in a dark room:

                                                                         ------

Material and Safety

Only top quality new materials will be used for the making of these stuffed animals, and just like all other retail toys sold, they will have to pass all required toy safety standards set in the United States. Our manufacturer follows meticulous safety standards, in which all of their products can pass ASTM and CPSIA american safety regulations (CE & EN71 for European regulations as well.) The dye "blood" we will be using is a non toxic permanent fabric paint. These toys are also child friendly and choke hazard free.  

                                                                         ------

Why Kickstarter?

Without the help of Kickstarter funding, this project can’t move forward. We have taken Vicious Plush as far as we could, and now we are asking you to help us get to the next step, which is mass production. Our manufacturer requires a large initial order quantity for each animal, adding the cost of shipping and other fees, we came up with the goal amount we have to reach to make this project possible. You can help by pledging or by spreading the word of our project to your friends! 

                                                                         ------

What's Next?  

Once our goal is met, we will be able to put this product in mass production. We will constantly provide our pledgers and social media followers with updates of milestones (manufacturing dates, inspection approvals, shipping dates, etc.) 

The following is a production plan of the toys, which will begin with the placement of the order with our manufacturer once our successful (35 day) Kickstarter campaign comes to an end:  

  • The production of the 3 animals will take anywhere from 35-45 days to complete, this includes passing the factory's quality inspections and our inspection. 
  • The fright will take approximately 25-35 days to arrive. 
  • The passing of all safety regulation tests will take another 10-15 days to complete.
  • Once we receive the shipment, we will apply the "blood" for selected toys then dry, this will take another 5 days.
  • We will then place them in proper packaging and ship to our Kickstarters! 

What comes after Kickstarter? The success of this campaign will determine whether our toys are in demand or not. If they are successful, we will launch a website to display these and future toys and hopefully going into retail. 

                                                                         ------

Okay, enough talking... now for the fun part!!!

                                                                         ------

Show us that you really like the Viciousness, and we'll make 2 more animals available!! 

Risks and challenges

Although this is our first project/business, we have spoken to and consulted experienced business people. We have also teamed up with a reputable manufacturer with over 7 years of experience in the stuffed toy industry. We have taken precautions to make sure that the funds to be raised by this campaign will be sufficient to cover mass production, freight and other fees. We will also provide multiple updates during & after our campaign, and are certain that our Kickstarters will be happy with our products and service!
