The blobfish is possibly the ugliest animal on the planet. Luckily it
lives in the ocean where few of us have to look at it -- that is until
now. The Blobfish Plush is making this special brand of ugliness
available to all of us on a daily basis.

This plush is not for children under 3 years of age due to small parts that may pose a choking hazard. It is constructed of 100% polyester materials and only the exterior is washable.

If I had one I would name him Ziggy because he reminds me of the cartoon character by Tom Wilson. However, since Ziggy smiled more often, it may not stick. Oh, well. I would still love him and hug him and pet him and squeeze him.
