Love it! Perfect size for a small child to grip and lug around. My baby niece is going to love it!
Engineered Plushy Goodness
I made my first stuffed animal at the age of 5 with some scraps from one of my Mom's sewing projects and I was hooked. It was a raggedy little pink teddy bear with frayed edges and a face drawn on in blue ballpoint pen. I still have him.
I spent a lot of time in elementry school trying to sell my little plush creations to my classmates on the blacktop for a quarter and taking "The Pooh Craft Book" out at the library so I could make all of the toys.
In the late 90s I made clothes and accesories for beanie babies and sold them along side my Dad at beanie baby trading shows, often for a dollar.
Throughout High School I made my friends teddy bears for birthday presents and anything else I could sew.
In 2006 I stumbled upon Etsy and opened Dropkicktims Designs as a way to turn my hobby and love of plush toys into a side business while I earned my Bachelors Degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
All items in the shop are the original designs. I hand draw all of my patterns, hand cut all of the fabric and I sew each one of the toys by hand with care and love.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Shipping, Founder
I have a BS in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Rutgers University. Born and raised in New Jersey, I now live in Maryland where I design and sew plush toys while working full time as an Engineer and attending graduate school.
At this time Plush Engineer is not accepting ANY custom orders. Yes, you can still request an item in a different color then what is listed in the shop, or request to have plastic eyes replaced with felt ones. However, anything requiring the alteration of a pattern (making things bigger or smaller) or a brand new pattern cannot be done. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
