Snow Plushies

All the pretty winter snow has inspired me to create these cute baby Yetis that I've named Yeti Snowflakes.

Meet Chester Copperfield (middle) and his friends the Yeti Snowflakes. Chester Cooperfield, is known as the world's happiest winter plush, he was born in a t-shirt factory during a winter snow storm. Born surrounded by clothing and snow, Chester's favorite thing to do is "dress up time", particularly in winter clothes. With his favorite season being winter, Chester loves the snow, sledding, tubing and all the games you can do in the cold. Even in the summer, he never takes off his snow outfit. His life goal is to one day take his friends and family to the north pole for a vacation. If you are a snowy person, Chester is the right plush for you! Unlike the rest of us, he is enjoying the big snow storms and cold weather across the United if you need a cheer-me-up from someone who loves this time of year, Chester will be there for you.

Chester is available in my esty store the Yeti Snowflakes are only available if you contact me by mail (dennrodriguez@gmailcom), they are $35 a piece.

A Post-Apocalyptic plush

Minsk Denn Rodriguez plush
Minsk Denn Rodriguez plush

In the year 2012, after the apocalypse, the earth's population was reduced to 3 people and 5 plushies. During these difficult times, all of Earth's inhabitants (8 individuals in all) were forced underground to flee the depleting ozone layer. In order to thwart their impending doom, the remaining inhabitants were forced to permanently wear hazmat suits and gas masks. During a freak washing machine accident underground, Minsk, the leader of the Post-Apocalyptic plushies, lost both arms attempting to save the last sweater caught in the machine's evil lint trap. Considered the smartest of the plushies, Minsk is a wiz at problem solving and is a dedicated companion for anyone. Don't be fooled by his lack of arms, he can still kick butt (even if its now only with his stubby legs!!!)

Minsk is available in my etsy shop.
