I've made whales for forever. Why not add a giant tusk and make something that is just as awesome (debatably awesomeER - what would you say?) : NARWHALS!

And to make them even more awesome, I took their pictures at the playground.



Yes, plush narwhals like playgrounds too.





Enjoy! Comments and criticism welcomed!

(although yes, i know, the tusk normally points more forward. this is an artistic interpretation.)

haha - yes I was wondering why the tusk was coming out of the tops of their heads - but I think its a cute interpretation and looks like they had fun at the playground!  Cheesy

Oh wow. Cute! Smiley I think the tusks being vertical makes them kind of like unicorn-whales - which is a concept I am loving!

I love these!  My high school mascot was a Unicorn (yeah, we're special), so our swim team called themselves the Narwhals.  Thank you for bringing back some fantastic memories and your artistic interpretation is perfect!

No way! I was just thinking that a plushie narwhal would pretty much be made of awesome and was thinking of making my own. Yours are adorable! I do like your interpretation with the unicorn-like horns.

Wow. I love them, they're SOOOO cute. You could take this same pattern, add tusks, and make a walrus.
