I first become aware of Moggie when Remjie Malham(amazing artist, check out their stuff!) shared one on facebook they'd managed to score at BTS(Beijing Toy Show). About a week later The Toy Chronicle blogged about it, including how I could go about getting on a waiting list to buy one! I honestly thought I'd have to wait longer, but within a couple of days of sending an e-mail, I'd paid for my toy & it was on it's way!
This toy is adorable! Well, maybe that's subjective. I think it's hilarious, the juxtaposition of the cuteness with the distasteful nature of the subject matter! Honestly a simple, but effective toy concept! It was destined to end up on my shelves, I mean honestly, it's a cat(I think it's a cat anyway :P) sucking the blood out of a bird, it's quite a visual!
This little vinyl toy is about 4inches tall & has one point of articulation; it's head can move. I didn't fiddle with it too much, I believe the straw can be removed too. I had a hard time trying to capture the shade of green in my photos, it's not quite a neon green, but it's still quite bright. I'm a big fan of green, so this choice of colour for the first Moggie release worked for me! I also think it's little tail is a nice touch!
I love this little thing, it makes me wish I put more effort into dusting(hence the weird angle of the 'displayed' photo :P). My first toy of the year & it's the perfect combination of cute & macabre!
I'm unsure how limited Moggie is, but I don't think they've sold out yet! If you'd like to add one to your collection, e-mail UnusualCreationClub@gmail.com or pop onto Unusual Creation Clubs Facebook page to enquire about one! Only $55USD! It's definitely worth every cent!
