Monster Factory Review and Giveaway (Christmas Wish List 2010)



Today I have a very special little stocking stuffer I would like to share with you moving right into 20 days until Christmas, this is the time of year I start searching for the perfect stocking stuffers and gift basket finishers for my family and friends so when I was looking for a little something special to add to my nephews stocking I discovered Monster Factory and immediately fell in love with their cute little monsters! So when I was given the chance to host a review/giveaway right here on The Cartoon Lovin’ Mama during my Christmas Wish List I was very excited to say the least!

About Monster Factory (Taken From Website):

A Brief Note About the Monster Factory

The Monster Factory is a character toy brand run by Adam Dunn, Rhya Tamasauskas, and Bliss Man. Together they design and create engaging monster characters who live in a strangely familiar world. Combining their backgrounds in film, art, and fashion, the creators have developed a strong sense of collaboration that affects every aspect of their process from storytelling to product design. Their efforts have produced countless monster characters who, despite their appearances, are just like you and me.


Our Thoughts:

I was sent a Colin Mini Plush and I have to say that when it arrived I was super excited to take it out of the package and check it out! Before I get to into detail about my review I want to share a little about Colin, he divides his time between playing video games and fretting about his future….boy that sounds an awful lot like someone I just happen to know though I’m not going to name a name!

After Colin arrived I wanted to give him a good look over and I was very impressed by the quality of the monster we were sent, all the stitches looked very good and I think he is just the most adorable little monster I have ever come across! To test the durability of Colin I set my 3 yr old loose on him and he carried him around everywhere for around a week although we were very careful not to get him dirty, it didn’t work he did get a bit of chocolate and dirt on him but he was super easy to clean with some of my husbands cleaner that he just swears by that he uses on both our car upholstery and our furniture! Colin held up magnificently to both “Bug” and the occasional monsternapping by Cash and just as I had expected it help up way past my expectations!

Bottom Line:

We are all very happy with Colin and I for one can not wait to adopt more of the adorable little monsters available from Monster Factory! I am very confident that all the monsters from Monster Factory will be just as well made and just as durable and easy to clean as Colin, and since “Bug” has claimed Colin as his own we are going to have to pick up another of the monsters for my nephew…..the hardest part is going to be which one to pick but I feel like we will be able to find a monster that matches his personality!

If you are looking for something super special to include in your little monsters stocking this holiday season I recommend checking out the selection of monsters from The Monster Factory, there is sure to be an adorable monster for everybody!

  19. I love these! Sheldon is my favorite, I think my son would love the fact that he eats french fries all day. My son is scared of the dark and thinks there's monsters in it (I never thought my son would be that child) and I am trying to find a way to get him out of that stage. If he had his own monster to scare away the others, maybe it would help.
