Kickstarter of the Week: Vamplets
Pinks, purples and cute undead plush pets abound in the Undead Baby Dragon & Bitemares Plush from Vamplets Kickstarter. What is a Bitemare, you ask? Bitemares, are creepily cute creatures that nibble on the toes of Vamplets while they sleep to give them nightmares. Adorable!
The plush toys, created by My Little Pony and Littlest Pet Shop toy designer, Gayle Middleton, are the latest and greatest of her line of the Undead Pet Society of Gloomvania. According to the campaign video, she has been obsessed for the past 7 years with the vampire babies she calls Vamplets.
This is the second Kickstarter for the Vamplets; the first campaign in 2013 launched “7 weird babies into the mortal world” including Ghost Pony and came in $9500 over its $22,300 goal. The current Kickstarter is already $6000 over its goal with more than a week left to go.
Backer rewards start at the $3 level for a downloadable copy of the Vamplets Legend of the Ghost Pony comic. At the middle levels, backers can receive the newest plushes or opt for a Ghost Pony. The two highest levels at $275 and $400 offered the Vamplet babies plushes, but they were limited to a handful of backers and have already sold out.
