The Creeps are Coming! Introducing: Leonardo the Octopus!
From Lauren Venell, the creator of Sweet Meats, comes a new line of original toys inspired by the animals who live in the deepest parts of the ocean. The “Deep Creeps” are a cadre of friendly creatures who manage to find warmth, light and friendship in the coldest, darkest place on the planet.
Leonardo the Octopus is the first to arrive. A precocious youngster, Leonardo could open cookie jars at just a few months old. He gets his big ears from his dad, a Dumbo Octopus, and his glowing eyes and suckers from his mom, a Stauroteuthis syrtensis. A naturally skilled glider with webbed arms, Leonardo loves to dance and give “umbrella” hugs.
Leonardo is made from super-soft velour, fleece, felt, and polyfill stuffing–all of which have been spun from recycled PET plastic. He comes packaged in a re-usable, printed plastic carrying case with no excess packaging. Like the Sweet Meats before them, the Deep Creeps are responsibly made at a CARE-certified facility that meets the highest international standards.
You can meet Leonardo in person at a special preview at Modern Mouse though April 15th. Leonardo will arrive in stores throughout North America and Europe beginning May 1st. The second Deep Creep will be released in fall 2012, and the third in spring 2013. Leonardo retails for $34.95.
