MUCH LOVE- Team Squid!

Lucky Squid Studios is a three member team from central Connecticut. We've been hand crafting adorable toys and accessories since 2009! We all came together from different creative backgrounds, each helping the other to design and produce the very best products!

We've been across the East Coast and Midwest promoting our work! While our campaign is live we will be traveling to:

  • YOUMACON  October 31st- November 2nd Detroit, MI 

  • NekoCon November 7th- 9th Hampton Roads, VA 

Make sure to stop by, say hello, and hug the prototypes for yourself!<3

 The Fruitimals were some of our very first designs and continue to be our most popular creations!  Throughout our travels, fans have constantly requested them as plushies and back in 2012 we were fortunate enough to fund our very own batch of Watermelon Cows!

 The fans loved them! These cuddly plush were such a hit that we decided it was time to give them some friends!

Earlier this year we sought out a manufacturer to help us produce Orange Fox, Eggplantypus, and Cherry Octopus!

Each plush toy is made from a super-soft vibrant minky fur, is a huggable 12 inches long, and features expertly embroidered details, which makes these toys safe for children of all ages.


We also had our little Pudgimal, Gertrude the Pig, prototyped! She is six inches long, made from minky fur, and she has a sweet little embroidered face! She's the perfect handful!

 All the prototypes have met our exacting standards and are fully approved. With your help we can give the go ahead and get these guys produced!

Unfortunately, plush production is a very expensive process. Funding this project is an undertaking that we hope our friends, fans, and the Kickstarter community can help us achieve. Reaching our goals could mean great things for our little homegrown business. Every little bit is greatly appreciated!

Here are the goals for this campaign:

 

We will also have mini goals pop up through out the duration of the campaign such as new PVC keychain, canvas field bag, and woven scarf designs!

Keep and eye on those Kickstarter updates for details! 

NEW GOAL!!! 


He'll be 13" long from snout to tail, made from soft minky fabric, and his little grumpy features will be expertly embroidered!

We are endlessly thankful to these wonderfully talented folks for lending their amazing skill to our Kickstater! Make sure to watch, follow, and support them! 

Coventry Decor has supplied our Kickstarter with awesome car decals and shot glasses. Their work is top notch!  Her designs are the stars of our pantry and give us a surge of nerd pride every time we use them! Be sure to check out their shop for some awesome hand etched glasses and durable decals!

STARRYDANCE Cosmetics created the handmade flavored shea butter lip gloss packs featured in our Kickstarter! They are super tasty and leave your lips extra soft! Be sure to check out her shop for some delicious nostalgia inspired lip glosses and sweet smelling solid perfumes!

Cute 'N Kitschy hand sculpted the darling Sweet Berry Sheep charm bracelets for our Kickstarter! Each charm is so tiny and perfect! It's amazing how much detail can be achieved at such a small scale! Be sure to check out her shop which is chock-full of super cute sculpted jewelry, accessories, and decorative gifts!

Buttered Buns Studios handmade some super lush scented lotions for our Kickstarter! Every lotion, body spray, and soap she makes is just heavenly! The scents are to die for!  Be sure to check out her products!

Kimchi Kawaii has illustrated one of our adorable postcard prints! This hilarious punster has a real knack for making people smile with her adorable art! Be sure to check out her shop! Keep and eye on her growing catalog of cute and funny plush puns!

Magnolia Fern Studios has sculpted a very exclusive Eggplantypus statuette for this Kickstarter! (*coming soon*) Her work is just beautiful! Be sure to browse through her shop and take a gander at the amazing pendants and charms! We especially love the nature themed ones. Everything is so detailed! Each piece is truly a work of art!

Rebecca Scoble, audio guru over at Chromatic Press, offered her invaluable skill and helped us create the audio for our Kickstarter video! 

For more entertaining examples of her work, be sure to check out her audio dramas over at Sparkler Monthly! Sparkler Monthly is a multimedia, digital shojo/josei magazine of original English-language fiction. We totally recommend checking them out! Listen to Awake! It's spectacular! 

Thank you for checking out our Kickstarter! You have no idea how much your support means to us! <3<3- Team Squid
