don't sweat it, anna. imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. besides, it's not like anyone will ever be able to even win that. those claw games are rigged anyway!

I can't believe "Stuffed Green" ripped off your design! I just read an article by Sideshow Collectibles and how companies (mostly in Asia) are making counterfeits down to every detail. It's just horrible because someone out there on the other side of the earth is making money off you're hard earned design/creation. "Stuffed Green" should be reported and exposed. Glad Joy B. spotted that photo. Artists gotta look out for each other :D

Oh, I'm sorry Anna, how awful. :(

So I picture this sad little owl sitting at the Chamber's Fabric Arts Thanksgiving Table. She doesn't quite fit in and she knows it. The Doolie Boxes politely pass the green beans. The Turds make friendly conversation. Salty Dog tells off-color jokes. We don't blame this imposter owl for who she is. She just has rotten parents.

WTH! That totally sucks Anna!! Corporate rip-off artists can suck it. On the upside- you must be doing something right to get ripped off, so it can be taken as a back-handed compliment...

Leeanna Butcher said...

BTW- that rip-off looks terrible compared to the real thing.

Anna, so sorry to hear about this news.

Sean Ward said...

You've got to agree that it's a bit of a compliment at the same time!

If you win it, you can find out who made it and evaporate their career

oh my goodness, i saw those at fred meyer's here in washington. :[

dollsforfriends said...

WOW! My daughter (Mynabyrd) and I saw those at our local grocery store. The next time I saw an employee stocking the claw-machine, I asked them about it, Lucy wasn't there, and they had no idea what I was talking about. So sorry! Rip off artists!!
Oh, and I asked what they were stuffed with since, it claims to be "eco-friendly" and the name stuffed green seems as though they would be-guess again, it's just plain old polyfill

Adele K Thomas said...

oh wow, how gut renching...well at least you know you have hit the big time with your stuff being ripped off for the hard to access claw machines...still...shithouse altogether!

Fred Meyer in Tri Cities? That looks like something that would be in the Fred Meyer claw machines. I'll have to check them when I'm home for Christmas. Maybe I can get it and feed it to my dog!
