With all the substantial amounts of emails I have been getting from parents looking for unusual gifts for their kids- I have been putting together some rather colorful and kid-friendly plush toys for the fun of it. I have a bunch of new axolotls including my new floppy-style beanie that can pose, a couple colorful sea-slugs (nudibranchs), a Tye-dyed lizard and a couple magnet buddies which were gifts to people I work with. Unfortunately I haven't had any time to make the magnet buddy tutorial, but plan on sometime in the near future.

Anyways- I am open to ideas and suggestions for odd creatures to plush-i-fy!


First up- some new Axolotls! Three (four with the magnet buddy); A couple for the Lotllove Nonprofit I sew Axolotls for, a standing axolotl, and the floppy axolotl. I couldn't include a lot of photos due to the fact I have the tags on them, which contain the website and I understand the rules on here, so to the best of my ability I blurred out what I could. I have more photos on the Tylonproducts facebook fan page and art blog.

So first up- Axolotls for Lotllove!






Standing Axolotl. Was actually a prototype I didn't like.



Axolotl Floppy! Filled with pellets and can pose.



Now for the others- I made a couple sea slugs





Tye-dye lizard!



And finally the two magnet buddy gifts I made; a Marbled Salamander and a Spotted Salamander!





I have been very, very busy. I have better photos and more on my site; which I didn't want to post due to the rules. So feel free to check out some of the others I made if you like. I also have much larger photos in case you want to see more of the details.

So yes- if anybody has any ideas, feel free to post!

Thank you!

Thank you everyone for the wonderful compliments and support!

I plan on making a bunch more for the holidays; and decided even though I haven't been able to work on the magnet buddy tutorial- I might make one for hang tags for everybody on here.

these are a great idea! I always wanted an axolotl, perhaps a toy would suffice :3
