About the Artist
Last year I ventured into plushies without the faintest idea of where I would end up. They did so well that now nearly a year later I'm releasing my SECOND line of adorable, little(but not that little) cryptid plushies and I'm so grateful for all the support I've received!
Meet the Cryptids
With this campaign we welcome three new cryptids to the family-- say hello to the vampire bats, wolpertingers, and beelzebears. Each giant (over 20 inches!) plush is perfectly floppy, squeezable, and covered in a long, soft fur that just adds to their overall cuddliness.
But hold on, there's a few more weres who'd like to join the party! If we manage to blaze past the first three goals like we did during the last campaign, I have a few extra special, limited edition careweres that would enter the prototyping phase as soon as they're unlocked.
First up is Gutsy Were who's cold, dead heart is in desperate need of a warm hug. Then we have the elusive and cuddly mothman, and lastly a super special and secret carewere design that will be revealed as we get closer to our $53,000 goal!
My lovely backers have made this campaign such a wild success that we now have even more delightfully creepy critters to look forward to!
Please keep in mind this timeline has the potential to change! Especially if we exceed all of our stretch goals and unlock even MORE plushies. Prototyping unfortunately takes quite a bit of time (three weeks to a month for each plush, on average) and it isn't financially feasible to ship several bulk orders of plushies at different times.
I post updates frequently and will keep everyone up to date with any changes, progress, or delays as they happen.
Please be aware that shipping will be charged after the campaign has ended and may vary depending on the current shipping rates established by the USPS. Below is an estimate of shipping costs based on the size of your order so you can be prepared for these fees post-campaign.

I reached out to new carewere owners for their opinion, and they were happy to oblige! Here's just a handful of comments I received in regards to the last carewere campaign.
Better than I could have expected!! So big and huggable. 😭
I LOVE HIM SO MUCH CRYING SOBBING <333 He has been such a huge comfort to me and a great buddy to take along on car rides!
I am absolutely in love with my Carewere!! He is super soft and has a great texture to him! Also he is BIG!
Both of my new were friends are so cute and much bigger than I expected. Both extremely cuddly and well-designed!!
I love the little guy, great quality, they're bigger than expected but the softest little things.
They're so perfectly soft and cuddly and honestly they're my new best stuffed friend.
