Imagination is in no short supply around these parts. One of our toys can have half a dozen alter egos and we love and encourage the unstoppable creative flow.
And so when we were introduced to the Clump-O-Lump crew of stuffed animals that can mix and match body parts with the tug of a zipper or two, we knew they were going to be a hit in the playroom. In other words, welcome to our interspecies creation lab.
industrial designer Max Knecht who has a knack for looking at things
with a fresh and rather playful eye. Each stuffed animal (choose from the diverse offerings of squid, frog, bee, bird, shark or tiger) has 3 body sections, a head, midsection and a bottom, that attach with a zipper and thus are completely interchangeable. So as you collect more from the Clump-O-Lump family you can make more giggle inducing crazy animal combinations.
The result? A great out-of-the-box toy that’s fun and silly and for whatever reason seems to make a lot
of sense… in the way that sharks mixed with tigers mixed with squids,
frogs and birds do.
remind me of the kind of toy you would get as a kid on a exciting visit
to FAO in the big city. They are very cool and have a strong presence
in the room either inter-clumped or all on their own. I’d think a pair
or trio of these could make a really great special gift for the right
kid. -Stephanie M
