Chic Shopper Chick Giveaway: Ugly Dolls

This contest has now ended. Please check out our contest page for our current contests and giveaways.

Is it bad to start a review by saying that the product is just down right UGLY? Because really, they are. But they are so ugly they're actually cute! Of course, I'm talking about none other than the Ugly Dolls, those amazingly soft and plush figures that are eternally popular with celebrities and us common folk alike. Christina Aguilera has them in her son's room, and they are certainly beginning to replace the firetrucks and airplane motif for little boys rooms the world over.

I have to admit, when I pulled my first Ugly Doll out of the box, I was skeptical. It was odd looking, and perhaps a bit frightening. That is until Little AG in all of her 17 month old glory, cruised on by and snatched little Poe out of my hands, immediately collapsing onto the ground in a giant hug with him. After a bit of patting him on the back and petting him, she hopped back up, stuck his wing in her mouth, and continued to bop around the house, all with Poe by her side.

So now I'm hooked. If you had seen that same adorable display, you would be too.

Ugly Dolls are the brain child of the creative husband and wife team of artists David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim. Ugly Dolls began as a drawing of a playful orange character known as Wage. Eventually Sun-Min sewed Wage into a plush figure as a surprise for David, and the rest is history. Since then, there have been many new characters and Ugly Dolls and have since turned the Uglyverse upside down!

So what do you think? Ugly or cute? I can't decide, but I do know that either way, I like em'!!

I had an ugly to some- beautiful to me bunny. I still have it to this day on my dresser reminding me- beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Gayla said...

I had a Mrs. Beasley doll that was my favorite. It was the same doll that the little girl carried around on the show Family Affair. (For you young folks, it was on in the early 70's). I would choose Paeco if I won.

I had a stuffed mouse, that I adored. I would choose the Moxy if I won.

Sheridan said...

I think uglydolls are SO supercute! When I was little, I had a stuffed dog named "Perdy" cause when I was three I thought dogs made a purring sound. I would choose Peaco, though any ugly doll would have my love.

Tania said...

I had a giant Snoopy I won for a raffle when I was 10. I had that thing until I was in my 30's. I would choose Poe. Too cute.

LINDALSHOT said...

I had a little stuffed panda with a wind-up music box in it.
I like Peaco.

nicknak said...

My favorite stuffed toy was this huge koala I had when I was little. I had to leave at my grannies house when we moved away, my mom said I could bring it when we went back that following summer. When we got back to New York to my shock and horror my cousins destroyed my bear. I dont think I ever got over that:-( But now I enjoy collecting for my kids and I would love the Paeco for my daughter.

I still have my favorite babydoll from my childhood -- the hair is all cut off and there's crayon in her ears. It used to scare my daughter when she was really little!

I love the Peaco ugly doll -- it looks a little like our cross-eyed cat that likes to nip at our heels.

My favorite stuffed animal is a teddy bear that is now hanging together by threads. One of these days I might give him an overhaul.

~ Peaco rocks!~

My favorite stuffed animal when I was a little girl was my stuffed Curious George. I took him everywhere with me! My little girl would love the Peaco doll. Thanks for this fun giveaway!

kara said...

I have a flat pillow-like stuffed animal named Sylvie. She's an elephant. She's in a shadow box now because she is kind of beat. She has an iodine stain from the hospital when I had hip surgery and the end of her trunk is chewed up (I use to chew on it). Poor girl. I still love her so!

I would pick Gato.

My favorite plush companion was Shrinking Violet. She was based on a TV show. I still have her and she still talks (pull string)--I'm 50 now! I was mesmerized by her moving "lips".

If I won, I would choose Poe.

Tonya said...

I had a doll named Lydia that my aunt sewed for me. I love all the ugly dolls, but I would choose Peaco if I won, I think my daughter would like it.

I had a little frog that leaked styrofoam pellets. I called it Kermit (oh so original) and sewed him up myself when he busted at the seams. I still have him!

I would choose Peaco because we don't have a pink Uglydoll yet...

I had a stuffed tiger. He always seemed huge to me - he was almost as big as I was when I was 4. But now I look at him (I still have him!) and he looks so little.

Jane said...

P.S. I like Gato Deluxe! He's so wonky!

Sweepsblogger said...

I had a classically 70s psychedelic stuffed turtle that I named Myrtle. It was my favorite even though it was not soft and cozy at all -- it was super dense and hard...but very, very colorful.

I would choose Poe if I won.

fangirl said...

I had a stuffed animal that looked like a combination of a dog and a teddy bear. I named it Teddy-dog and hugged it until it was thin in the center.

I love Gato Deluxe. It is sooo cute.

icylass said...

As a tot I idolized my older brother. When he brought a stuffed Garfield back from a trip and gave it to me, I was on cloud nine. "Garf" never left my side and despite all the misplacing, accidental washings, dog maulings, etc., I still have him.

All of the Ugly Dolls are adorable, but my fave has to be Ice Bat. :)

louiseb130 said...

I loved my sister's Ginny doll. i'd pick Moxy

gkstratos said...

I don't remember what kind of doll she was, I'm sure she was some generic brand but I loved her nonetheless. I named her Curly (because of her blonde curls) and I lost her on a family camping trip. I was crushed. I LOVE these uglydolls and would be thrilled with any of them, although Poe might be my favorite.

Sara said...

This giveaway fits me perfectly! Haha, I am so into these kind of gifts! How unique and adorable is this?!? Props to you!

My favorite stuffed animal was this weird rabbit/monster. My grandpa had got it for me when I was younger for my Birthday right before he died. I was still a baby. Growing up, I held onto that thing like crazy...it went EVERYWHERE with me! To date, it is the only stuffed animal I still have. It was one of those that flips inside out, from a rabbit to this monster looking creature. It's very weird but that's why I like it! Not a stuffed animal out there like it! :]

Okay, don't want to write a book. My favorite Ugly Doll is Cuckanucka or Ox! Too cute.

Good luck to everyone!
Best wishes*

AmandaK said...

When I was young, my mom had a friend that made me and my twin sister matching bunny rabbit stuffed animals. We carried them around so much that on my bunny, one of the ears was falling off. Boy, I miss Mrs Rabbit!

I would love to win Poe. He would sit on my bed every night (i'm a single woman... lol)

queenoftheclick said...

As a child, I carried around a small black bear. One day, a dog came and took my bear away. One of the neighborhood kids retrieved the bear, but his head was torn off.

I would love to win Poe or Gato - I like both of them! This is such a cool giveaway.

I subscribe and I love it! queenoftheclick {at} yahoo.com

Puglee is my fave, as a little kid I have a bear that looked like fozzy bear (even had the same ribbon) and I love playing with him all of the time

kris1492 said...

My favorite was an overstuffed floppy headed reindeer.

Secret Target is great looking!

Meredith said...

My mother made a furry stuffed cat that was flat with blunt little ears and I had to hide it when I went to sleep because I thought it looked like an alien and it scared me. But I liked it during the day.
It looked a lot like an Ugli doll!!

Traumajunky said...

I love them! I want Paco please, he's just the coolest ever!

My favorite stuffed animal as a child was a large, brown bear. It looked just like the real thing but was very soft and cuddly.

mar said...

Gato Deluxe is the ugly doll I would choose if I won. My favorite stuffed animal as a child was my teddy bear.

Storm said...

My fav plush as a little girl, which I still have actually, was this stuffed rabbit I called Bunny. (yes, I have a thing for rabbits even as an adult... lol)

I am totally digging Poe for the munchkin. I'm thinking he's going to be adored for all eternity if we win!

mannequin said...

Oh I love em!
My favorite when I was young was a pink poodle that went everywhere with me. I lost him but I now have a pink poodle collection; he can never be replaced though..

My favorite stuffed animal growing up was a large Snoopy doll. He was nicknamed Turkey Neck because I always carried him by the neck so his neck was barely connected to his head anymore. I still have him. If I won I would choose the Poe doll.

I really had a bit of a time wrapping my brain around these ugly dolls, but understanding your childs' reaction...Well it is their world! Gato grew on me..also heart the new Lil' Babo's Bird. I think Lily would take kindly..interesting to see. My Granny made all the grandchildren..hundreds of us..(not really), A personalized pillow with our name embroidered on it.. I loved it. Slept with it for years..wonder where that thing is..

Dana Jae (and Eliza too!) said...

My teddy bear, Pookie, has sonce been relinquished to my daughter, who sleeps with him every night. As far as an Ugly Doll, I'd have to say that Paeco would be my favorite!

We would love a Poe if we won.

Mary512 said...

When I was little I actually had a blanket named mickey that I carried around, I even took it to the first day of 1st grade. It was a seafoam green knit blanket with satin around the edges that eventually all the satin came off and it had gum stuck to it and holes in it. I even have the blanket somewhere, in a box. I took it to school every day in pre-k and kindergarten, I kept it in my cubby hole or backpack!

Mary512 said...

I forgot to tell the story of how my blanket mickey got lost at a hotel in new orleans when I was little. We would drive to florida every summer from texas for our family summer vacation. on the way back, we would always hang out in new orleans for a few days. my family was staying at a hotel and I put my mickey down on the bed while we went to dinner. when we came back they had changed the sheets and mickey was gone. we told the front desk and they looked for him in the laundry but didnt find him. 3 days later we were packing the car up to leave and they came out to the car with mickey. it was so traumatizing, Ill never forget it. but i was so happy they found him. he almost got lost at a hotel in new orleans but to this day, I still have him.

Sandy said...

This is so nice of you! When I was a kid, I had this teddy bear that I loved so much. He was nothing fancy, but he was my favorite. He was raggedy, but he was my buddy when I was a kid. =) I wish I still had him...I have no idea what happened to him. I guess over the years, he got lost somehow. :/

I would choose the Gato Deluxe if I won. =)

gcuvier said...

I had a big, blue-gray teddy bear named Smoky that I'd won at a carnival. I was so proud of him because I'd never won anything before. He slept with me every night all the way through high school and I'd brush out his long fur to make him even softer.

After I left home, my mom gave him away to Goodwill. I was so sad.

If I won, I'd take Peaco.

jenny said...

grannyvon said...

I had a sock monkey that my granny made me from the two color high top socks. Mine was made of light brown and white with red button eyes and red embroidery face features. I loved it and it is really in bad shape now but I still have it. I'm 66. I love the Peaco Doll for my great grand baby who is coming in Oct.

anna p. said...

My grandmother gave me a large stuffed lamb, that also happened to be a puppet. Ever the original child, I named it "Lamby." It was quite cute, but came with an attached bell that would ring all night as I slept with it. As a solution, we tied a giant sock around the bell to muffle the ringing (why we didn't detach the bell, I have no idea). Lamby was pretty silly looking and top heavy as a result. I particularly like Peaco, perhaps I could tie a sock around it's neck too!

anna.hawaii@yahoo.com

Les said...

My favorite toy as a child (and today) was the sock monkey that a neighbor made for me when I was born. Over the years its needed some surgery and it now has part of a Halloween sock as a patch on his rump that is covered with little flying batts. LOL! keeping that in mind, I would chose Poe if I won. I always did love bats and that's one bat I dont have in my collection. Plus, he's just ADORABLE!!

Kasey said...

My dad brought me home a Chiquita Banana Doll (he was a USDA inspector and had seen this at one of the markets he went to). It was really the most hideous looking thing now that I think back on it, but she truly was a one of a kind and that's why I liked her so much. That think went everywhere with me and I even kept it as I got older and married. It's now in a box in my closet. It just holds so many wonderful memories that I just can't part with it.

If I won I'd choose Gato.

I used to love Gund stuffed animals - they were the softest by far, and had names on their tags. I would choose Poe - love the wings.

I had a baby doll that everyone thought was so ugly they named it grusome, the babysitter would put it on top of the refrigerator so she wouldn't have to look at it but I loved her.

aspritzofsis said...

As a kid, I had a blue kitty that went everywhere with me. Most people thought he was a bear, especially since his tail kept falling off.

Sarah said...

I had (still have) a stuffed rabbit that was my mother's when she was a kid. It's name is Mr. Ears. One of its ears has been torn off and re-sewn at least 10 times and it is missing an eye. When my daughter is a little older I am planning on passing it on to her and hopefully she will cherish it as much as I did.

I would choose Peaco because I like that it has 3 eyes.

Dumaurier said...

My doll was my Robbie Doll named after my favorite uncle. He is a crocheted doll with a plastic face that has been loved so much that he no longer has any paint left on his face. He resides on a shelf in my closet because I could not bare to box him up, the kid has to breathe! My son loves his Uglydolls, I'd choose Gato Deluxe for him.

JP said...

I was born in the 80's so of course, my favorite doll was my cabbage patch doll. She had blonde hair which I loved because my hair is brown.

My favorite stuffed doll was Mrs. Beasley from a TV show called "Family Affair" that I never actually watched because our reception was so crummy out in the hills! But my Grandma got it for me, so I loved her, little wire rimmed glasses and all!

cathy54321@hotmail.com said...

And I think Poe is cute too!

Wendy said...

My favorite toy when I was a child was my "favorite baby" which ended up having no hair or eyeballs because I loved it too much.

I would have to say that my "favorite" Ugly creature is the Gato Deluxe.

Oh, and by the way:

TAG YOU'RE IT!

A link back to my site would be fine if you don't want to play.

My favorite stuffed animal as a child was this light baby blue bear than had one of those windup's in the back, I believe it played You are my Sunshine, I lost mine due to a fire.. but my hubby I have come to find out actually has the same exact bear...! His Mother is graciously bringing the bear to us when she visits to help with the upcoming birth of our baby girl in September! I'm thrilled because we both shared the same bear as a child, my hsuband says it was Destiny.

My favorite toy (lovey) was a teddy bear, and during my toddler years I pulled all the fur off the bear, so he is bald, but he was one very loved bear.

If I win I would love to have Poe, he is cute, in an odd sort of way.

I had an Ernie doll from Sesame Street, and it was sort of like a learning tool because you could work the buttons on his coat and the zippers and tie his shoes, things like that. It was my favorite, I took him everywhere! I would love to get Moxy if I won.

My stuffed animal was Sunny Bunny. It was a white easter bunny that you could buy at the Emporium in San Francisco when you spent maybe $50. My mom spent the $50 and I paid for Sunny Bunny. I distinctly remember picking him out of the stack of rabbits. I still have him, and love him as much as ever. I've handed him down to my kids, and he's the go to fix for bad dreams or when they're sick. I don't know what we would do without him.

I think Secret Mission Icebat or Babo are my favorite UglyDolls. I've seen them in stores, and immediately fell in love. (email on my blogger profile, hope that counts!)

I had a monkey named Brownie and he was actually pretty flat. I remember I took him to school for stuffed animal day and everyone made fun of him because he was flat. I was devastated but I gave Brownie even more love after that.

If I win, I would love Peaco!

I had a very ugly doll that my Aunt gave to me for a birthday present. She had a cloth body and a wooden head with long skinny arms and legs. To make it even worse, she had freckles and red pig tails. She was so ugly but I had to pretend to love her since it was a special gift. I named her Penelope and ended up loving that doll the most over time. Thanks for the memories.
My favorite ugly doll is GATO!

Laura Emerson said...

These dolls are so ugly they are adorable. I love the Paeco. I had a stuffed bear that my dad won for me over 40 years ago at the state fair. Today he is a little blind, a little less fuzzy, but my granddaughter absolutely adores him!

Ashley said...

I had a styrofoam bean-stuffed doll named Louisey that I loved to death. She deteriorated, and I was really upset when I had to retire her.

If we won, I'd choose the Icebat doll because I live in Austin, home of the largest urban bat colony, and it would be a great representation of our hometown for my son.

calgirl said...

I had a flip doll black girl on one side and you flip the skirt and a white girl on the other side.

Gato ugly would be my choice.

I wanted a Cabbage Patch Doll so bad when I was little but, we couldn't afford one so my mom found a lady that made dolls that looked like Cabbage Patch Dolls, so she had me one made and I requested red hair and green eyes because thats what my little brother had and I loved him so much at the time. That was 1984 and I was 10yrs old, and I still have her today. If I were to win I would love Poe. Thank You!!

kaboogie said...

Oh, man I love these guys. Don't know if you ever heard of these, but I had a naugy when I was a kid. Made of naugahyde, it was the little mascot of the industry. We had a plant near our house. I miss it! My college roomies ruined it :-(.

I really love OX!! He reminds me the most of my naugy. BTW, naugy's were the first ugly doll!

my email - ka_boogie@sbcglobal.net and thanks!!

Jessie said...

an extremely fluffy white teddy bear my grandmother got me when i born (i am now 37..and still have it!) i would love poe for my kids..they would love it!

I actually didn't get my favorite stuffed animal until I was 16 because I had a messed up childhood.
Anyway,at the time of my 16th birthday, I was living in a group home for abused kids and my therapist stopped by to wish me a happy birthday.
She handed me a package wrapped in The Little Mermaid wrapping paper and said "Here, you'll probably think this is lame, but I thought of you when I saw it."
It turned out to be a big, fat rotund plush bear with soft ,cream-colored fur.
Trying to be a cool, detached teenager, I said "No, it's not lame. I kind of like it."
That was such an understatement.
I loved that thing because no one had ever given me a teddy bear before.
I slept with it until college and I still have it. My kid plays with it now.
I stayed in touch with the therapist too, but as a friend, not a patient.

Anyway, back to Ugly Dolls.I'm madly in love with the bat, Poe.
He fits my Goth aesthetic to a tee.
Thank you for the contest.

It's funny you should ask this as my mother just recently came by and deposited a bunch of things from my childhood here at my house. I'd forgotten all about it, but in that pile was this knitted lamb that my grandmother had made for me (I think). It was loved to bits and I was hit rather fiercely with a bunch of old memories.

POE POE POE needs to come live with me!

Jayfr said...

My favorite was a red lobster that I won at the PTA carnival, although his tenticles would poke me in the eyes. Peaco.

mhjozwiak said...

My fave as a kid was a cabbage patch doll named Pete Mack. He went everywhere with me, and my Gram performed multiple "surgeries" reattaching his arms as a result.

I like that little pink guy, with 3 eyes! You're right. So ugly, it's cute.

Sylvia P said...

i played with a plush dog named Nick, and i absolutely love Ox!

Mama Zen said...
