Plush Caplin Rous?

#1) Alien Caplin

#2) Sleepy 'bara

I am thinking of getting a plush toy version of me made. So far I’m considering one of two designs, as shown above. But this is not an inexpensive proposition to get a toy designed and the minimum order is 500 units. Before my owner and I do any of that, we thought we’d get the opinion of the fans to see if they are interested and what they would prefer if we choose to go ahead with this project.

Can you please answer the poll on the right side-bar and indicate whether you would be interested in a toy, which one and how much you might pay? We’ll leave the poll open until July 21st so you have some time to think.

Please post a comment if you have any insights or suggestions.  For example, would a beanie baby be okay or should it be a real plush toy? Is there some other drawing of me or pose that you think would work better?

Thanks!

CONTEST! Putting Caplin Rous in My Life

Elly Fox, Dim Dim Dim and Me

Entry #0: Elly Fox "Capy Paradise"

My FaceBook friend, Elly Fox, made this great photo of me standing with her and her boyfriend Dim Dim Dim (weird name but sometimes you just can’t explain humans).

I really like that photo. It makes me think I could be with all of my friends. Wouldn’t that be great? Well, maybe I can’t do it in real life but I can do it in Photoshop. So I am making my first GiantHamster.com Contest. Let me explain the rules.

==========================================================

And the Winners Are:

  1. Entry #40: Caplin & Dalai Lama, Angelica Clemmer
  2. Entry #9: Holding Up the Monument, Issac
  3. Entry #11: Kissing with a Walrus, Maude Perreault

I need for the winners to send me their physical addresses in an email so I can send them their prizes.

If you ask me, everyone was a winner, even those that didn’t enter, because the entries were all so cute, inventive and entertaining. I really loved seeing me in all those different places with all those different people! Thanks everyone!

1st, 2nd and 3rd all get the same prize, a mug from my CafePress shop. Here’s what it looks like.
