Welcome to FUZZU!
We’re an innovative new pet toy company based in Vermont. We love our pets and have made it our business to entertain by creating funny toys for cats, dogs, and people. The Presidential Parody series is our first line of pet toys, featuring Bernie, Donald, and Hillary in a variety of sizes.
No matter which way you lean, these toys make great gifts for pets, people, and even politicians. By supporting our campaign, you'll be the first in your party to get them!
The Bernie toy features wild plush hair, rolled up sleeves, and is ready to start the revolution. With your vote, he and your pet will hit the floor running.
The Hillary toy is the heat to beat with her red pantsuit ablaze, and her fiery gaze fixed on the Oval Office. Fling her into the ring...and watch the fur fly.
The Donald toy is stylin’ with his golden tan, quaffed plush hair, and flashy garb. His well-heeled foot will inevitably end up in your pet's mouth.
8” Cat toys feature super-charged, top quality catnip and top-stitched floppy arms and legs to initiate spirited debates on the floor. Non-toxic printed cotton/poly fabric, fiberfill and accents of plush.
17" Dog toys come alive with floppy arms and legs that they’ll shake senseless. With our ever-conscious interest in durability, we’ve added fortified seams by triple-stitching where the arms and legs are attached to the body. The toys also feature a bottom gusset and top-stitching at the elbows and knees for easy sitting and strategic posing (a photo-opportunity begging to happen). A squeaker is included for good measure. Non-toxic and durable printed cotton/poly canvas, fiberfill and accents of plush.
27” Jumbo toys are whopping giants, perfect for super-sized dogs, or any-sized humans! Like the 17" dog toys, they feature a bottom gusset and top-stitching at the elbows and knees for easy sitting and creative posing. Triple-stitching at the seams where the arms and legs are attached to the body adds durability to stress points. Real attention-grabbers in the passenger seat, as a dinner date, or large and in charge at the office! Just like our Dog toys, they're made with the same non-toxic, printed durable cotton/poly canvas, fiberfill, and with accents of plush. And we’ve added a squeaker just for fun.
We're pet people. Designers and illustrators for over 25 years, we've made it our business to entertain by creating humorous toys for cats, dogs and their people. Our creative vision is based upon a deep understanding of how pets play and think, and what makes people howl. Our design studio in Vermont is on a hilltop with views of the Green Mountains, and daily walks with our dogs keep us inspired.
We’re no strangers to using political figures as muses, and this election season, we just couldn’t resist.
At FUZZU, the design process includes many stages of sketching. We start with pencil and paper before moving into color work. Digital patterns are then drafted and the art is hand screen-printed onto fabric. Sewn prototypes are created, revisions are made and our toys are ready for production.
By pledging to this Kickstarter campaign, your generosity will launch our first series of toys and our new venture, FUZZU. With a successfully-funded campaign, we'll proceed to the production of the Presidential Parody series. We've completed all of the pre-production work and the toys are ready to be manufactured and brought to market.

Risks and challenges
Experience and creativity are our most valuable resources. With years of designing and producing quality pet toys, we understand every aspect of what it takes to bring our designs to market. We have a long-term, trusted relationship with our manufacturer and a 3rd party fulfillment company.
We have completed the up-front design and pattern work and have production-ready samples of the Presidential Parody toys.
We know the drill and don't foresee any issues that could greatly challenge our operation in sending your reward toys in a timely manner. If unexpected issues do arise, we are confident that we have the experience to solve them quickly and efficiently.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
