As we continue to expand Rawrztoys, our newest toy is a fox! He made his premiere as a prototype at Emerald City Comic Con, and was redesigned, printed, sanded/primed, buffed, molded and cast for Bay Area Maker Faire this weekend! He marks the 9th toy in our line (Narwhale, Octo, Seahorse, Shark, Giraffe, Elephant, Alligator, & Hedgehog.) Available in 2 sizes, Small at about 1.5 inches and big at 5 inches. We teamed up with nascent objects to create his light up cupcake base that changes colors by app!

In August 2014 I was approached by Athena Studios, and asked to lead the puppet build for a short film "Mermaids on Mars." Having worked with them in the past to create Sophie for "Auntie Claus", I was extremely excited! Over the next couple months I lead a team of 6 in the creation of 7 puppets. I was lucky to have such wonderful teammates, and couldn't be more thrilled with the results. Here is a sneak peak of "Mermaids on Mars!"
