The Ugly Teddies are the plush animal alternative for people who like their things a little more morbid than usual.

The Teddies begin life as regular, boring plush animals before being rescued by myself and my fiancée and freed from the bonds of dull, often mass-produced cuteness. Ugly Teddies are stuffed animals with attitude, but don’t worry; they’re all good at heart! (Well, most of them are, anyway…)

Additional policies and FAQs
The Ugly Teddies are created from "donor" plush animals that once were cute, cuddly, and, generally speaking, pretty darned boring. Each one has been lovingly hand-modified; these modifications generally involve the subtraction of some boring bits, with the subsequent addition of new bits that are more aesthetically interesting. Some of these new bits may be hand-sculpted and/or hand-painted. Some may be other “donor” bits, from other “donor” objects. Some of these bits are derived from once-living animals; under NO circumstances were these animals killed specifically for the purposes of producing these pieces.

Please note that many of the Teddies are particularly delicate, and NONE of them are intended for children. (Let me state that again: These are art pieces, NOT children's toys!) We also don’t recommend throwing them at your friends at parties, especially not the ones that have sharp points.

The prices of the Ugly Teddies reflect the amount of time, effort, personal craftsmanship, and creative and physical energy required to create them, as well as the uniqueness of the piece. Additional determining factors may include its ability to get along well with the other Teddies, its cooking ability, whether it listens to its music too loud, and how much it owes on rent.
