New Cats!

Introducing "Poncho Cat" and "Sweater Cat", the newest Grumble Toy characters.  Chris has been busy sculpting the two new cats based on some of Ainsley's drawings.   Both cats stand approximately 4 inches tall and are cast in resin.  This is the first time that we have made characters out of resin and it has been a really fun experience.  We love how, with the addition of pigment, glow powder, or glitter, we can make each individual piece a one of a kind.

This year at SDCC we are lucky enough to have some of our toys at the Squibbles Ink + Rotofugi display (booth 5248).  Both of our new resin figures as well as a special  clear pink "Chubby Tough" exclusive will be available at their SDCC booth.  Any figures that don't sell during the convention will be available through

 Each of the resin toys available at SDCC is a one of a kind and some of them even glow in the dark!  Here are a few more close-ups....

 More to come in the near future!  Stay tuned!
