The Monster Cthulhu Kingdom is a set of friendly-looking toy animals that seem to be slightly related to H. P. Lovecraft’s fictional deity. Each of these toys represents a great way to introduce Halloween monsters to your little baby.
Created by Etsy user Phuong Ly Krone (otherwise known as Joe Krone), who seems to be an expert in crocheting, this set includes some of the cutest looking toy animals in the world. The main star of the show seems to be Baby Cthulhu, Sunnypus who is the baby girl of Devil Elebun Cthulhu, according to Krone. With such scary names, you would expect these toy animals to be absolutely terrifying, but in reality they are anything but.
Krone’s story provides a bit of a background from the monsters included in this set: “Once upon a time, a Cthulhu Devil Elebun got married to Cthulhu Sunflower and they had an adorable baby girl named Sunnypus. Sunnypus had several friends, they are Piggy Pink, Unicorn, Bunnymouse, Octoarms. She was very beautiful but always gave her parents trouble and her father had to often rescue her from the evil clutches of Franken-Bride Cthulhu and Werewolf Cthulhu.” Judging by the names of these “monsters,” it’s rather obvious that they resulted from different animals that were joined together.
The Monster Cthulhu Kingdom is currently featured on Kickstarter, where Krone looked to raise $40. That’s right, this master crocheter launched this crowdfunding campaing with the sole goal of seeing if anyone would buy even one of his toys, since most of them start at $40. At the time of writing, the project had raised nearly four times as much, proving that Krone should be more confident about his goals. As a matter of fact, his confessed goal for this campaign is to open a retail shop in Atlanta, the city where Krone is currently residing, so that customers can have access to such cute toys at a reasonable price. The author of the campaign must have forgotten a few 0s, as I doubt he’d get that far with only $40.
In case you want any of these cute animals for your baby on this Halloween and you’re not that fast a crocheter yourself, you can head over to Etsy and pick any of the toy animals depicted above. Sure, they come at a premium there, but the negligible difference is better than having to wait till January 2015, when people who backed the project on Kickstarter are going to receive their toys.
