We at Rawrztoys were lucky enough to be interviewed by Make Magazine! They did an amazing feature on how we create our toys. We also have a new store, and website up, which can be viewed at www.rawrztoys.com.

Cast Puppets for Lift Animations Henrietta
Created Sophie for Athena Studios "Auntie Claus." With a great team we managed to pull off creating a pitch package in just under 3 months, creating the puppet in less than 2. From Development to finished product I am extremely proud to have been a part of AuntieClaus.
At the completion of our pitch I was contracted to create molds and castings at Fathom Studios.
All and All its been a crazy year filled with Artwork, insane deadlines, great dinners of Chicken, Green Beans and Mashed potatos, Watching a lot of Badly, awesome movies, and feeling very lucky!
