Whilst prowling Kickstarter, our UK correspondent, Gareth, came across a new line of interactive zombie animal plushies that are just too damn cute – and cool – to ignore. Series 1 contains 9 characters in 3 sets: Say hello to Zombie Shark, Zombie Meerkat, and lots more!
The Animazombs are a horde of misunderstood, clumsy, attention-seeking zombie animal softies who just want to be loved!! Brought to life by the delightfully eccentric Professor Unbound, these creations didn’t quite come out as he’d intended, but he became quite fond of their zany ways and decided to keep them that way.
Professor Unbound’s first successful batch of Animazombs came from three different sources: the Deep (Snyder the Shark, Edgar the Octopus, Wesley the Lobster); the Savannah (Thom the Elephant, Samuel the Meerkat, Wilson the Giraffe); and the Home (George the Hamster, Bruno the Dog, Victor the Rabbit). To keep them in an environment they love, he houses them in specially devised Eden Project-esque bio-domes in his lab. Three exist at present, but there are plans for many others in the future should he get the chance, including Polar, Outback, Undergrowth, and Aviary domes, which he plans to completely fill with his pets!
For more info head over to the Animazombs Kickstarter page before the campaign ends at 21:00 (GMT) on 20th September, where you’ll be able to pledge however much you wish to secure a variety of different Animazomb goodies for yourself months before anyone else. Also visit the official Animazombs website, “like” Animazombs on Facebook, and follow Animazombs on Twitter.
