It's hard to imagine that these "ugly" dolls came from such a beautiful story. The love behind these adorable designs is clearly a part of their charm. Wage, an Ugly Doll character, was simply a cute drawing at the end of one man's long distance letters to his soon to be wife. She then created a little plush doll of Wage to send back, since he clearly made an impact and meant a lot to her. This was the inspiration behind what we now know as Ugly Dolls.
To me, Ugly Dolls are far from ugly. I think they are truly adorable and friendly looking. My sister recently went to Comic Con in San Diego and posted pictures of her with life size Ugly Dolls (characters in costume). I commented on her photos stating that they were adorable and that I hoped she brought one home for my daughter. She responded with excitement that they were Ugly Dolls and that I had to check out their website, UglyDolls.com.
Ugly Doll was generous enough to send me a member of the Ugly Doll Plush Family, and we have been happy to welcome OX into our family. Ox is made from a very soft material that makes him very huggable. He is well made and has endured many hugs, a little drool and numerous trips in the diaper bag. I am thrilled with our Ugly Doll and feel that they make adorable and unique friends. Ugly Dolls have even been named Toy of the Year!
I highly recommend that you check out the fabulous Ugly Doll Plush Family, as well as their other products.
