Uglydoll is a brand based upon a line of plush toys which began as a long distance letter between the creators David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim. The Uglydoll line was first launched in January 2001 and is distinguished by its definition of the word "ugly." In the "uglyverse," ugly means unique and special, that we should be celebrating that which makes us different, never hiding the twists or turns which make us who we are, inside and out. From the creative minds of two love struck artists emerge the UGLYDOLL™ family! What started as a drawing of a playful orange character known as Wage™ has turned into a whole new world of fun! They're soft, they're plush and they're cute.
