Mix it up with Chimeras

Some bunnies aren’t made to hop and some monkeys don’t want to swing in trees. Now there’s no need to typecast the soft toy collection.

Chimeras are set to change the face of plush toys. Actually no, not the face. But they will change the arms, legs, wings, ears and tails. Simple ball-and-socket popping connectors on the limbs of these cute creatures make all the parts interchangeable. So, swap a wing for an ear or a tail for an arm – whatever takes your fancy.

Chimeras will come in pairs, so that kids can start exchanging body parts immediately. The first two sets will pair Monkey with Bunny and Elephant with Bat.

Chimeras are not yet in production – they are part of a Kickstarter project that will only go ahead if it meets a certain target of support pledges. Get on board for as little as US$1 and be the first one with a ‘Monny’ or a ‘Bunkey’.
