About

Soft and Squishy Babycat Plush

CA$ 36,913

387

Hi! I’m Maobaby, an illustrator and designer based in Canada. I’ve been designing and creating merchandise for several years and am excited to present this Kickstarter for my first plush!

Meet Babycat, a soft and sensitive tabby cat who’s trying their best! Baby loves junk food, hugs, and long naps. Only four months old, this little kitten is already much larger than his siblings! His tremendous size and softness makes him a perfect friend. 

Babycat measures 12 inches long, and is extremely soft and squishy with a mochi-like feeling. Babycat’s teary eyed features are professionally embroidered, while his soft, grey fur pattern is digitally printed on a super stretchy minky plush fabric originating from Japan.

I went through several rounds of samples and designs to create the cutest and most huggable version of Babycat. The plush is loosely filled for a soft and squishable feeling. These premium materials were carefully sourced to create the ultimate plush that’s perfect for hugging and squishing. 

Check out the squishiness !! 

In addition to the plush, an enamel pin and sticker sheet will also be available during this campaign. The enamel pin is limited edition and will only be available via this Kickstarter project. Once it's gone, it's gone! 

You can now add on Pizza Cat, French Fry, or Dumb Baby Juice Enamel Pins to your pledge! Simply increase your pledge by $19 per extra enamel pin! You will receive a survey at the end of the campaign to let me know which designs you'd like. All tiers including enamel pins can choose from all unlocked pin designs.

This cute rainbow lanyard has also been unlocked! All tiers containing plushes will receive a lanyard for free! All other tiers now have the option to add a lanyard by increasing your pledge by $10! Scroll down below for Add-On instructions!

The kiss-cut sticker sheet measures 4x6" and will be printed on matte vinyl, featuring Babycat and some of their favourite snacks!

All pledges will receive exclusive digital wallpapers for your computer and phone with art created specifically for this campaign! 

Babycat goodies come in a variety of combinations with some perfect for sharing with a friend! Can't find a tier that completely fits you? No worries, keep scrolling to find add-on instructions to add extra items!


If you'd like an extra item on top of your pledge and none of the tiers offer exactly what you're looking for, you can add them to your pledge by following the instructions below.

Add-On Instructions: 

1) You will first need to have pledged to a tier before you can add on extra items. Please click the "Manage your Pledge" button above. 

2)  In the "Pledge Amount" box, increase your pledge by cost of your desired add-ons. Check the price list below. Make sure to save your pledge and do not change the tier that you originally pledged at.

3) You will receive a survey after the end of the Kickstarter campaign and you will be able to let us know which items you'd like to put your additional pledge money towards. 

Add-On Costs (includes any additional shipping fees):

1 Sticker Sheet: $14 Canadian

1 Enamel Pin: $19 Canadian

1 Plush: $57 Canadian

To celebrate the full funding of Babycat, I've added a few stretch goals that will be included for free with some tiers, or available as an add-on later!

In order to make this plush a reality, I really need your support! As you can imagine, designing and producing a plush toy from scratch and sourcing high quality materials costs a lot of money! The breakdown of the Kickstarter goal includes the production costs of plushes and other rewards, as well freight costs from the plush factory to my fulfillment center.

All rewards will be shipped by White Squirrel, a company based in Seattle with plenty of experience fulfilling large campaigns for artists and creators. White Squirrel comes highly recommended by many creators, artists, and makers. Rest assured your rewards will be shipped to you safely and quickly.

Risks and challenges

I’ve been creating and selling merchandise for the past few years with thousands of happy customers. The manufacturers I’ve chosen are ones I’ve relied on for years or have been recommended to me by other artists I trust. The prototype plush has been created. All that’s left is the mass production.

I have accounted for delays with a long production period, though in the unlikely event that unforeseeable events happen, delays may occur. I will be transparent with all backers every step of the way. White Squirrel has been contracted to ensure the quick fulfillment of rewards. Rewards are expected to arrive in November 2019.
