Shawn Smith, founder of Shawnimals, was awesome enough to do an interview with Albotas after a grueling signing session at NYCC 2012. Hit the link to read about the origins of NinjaTown, the art of plush, and Shawn’s days of writing for EGM.
Shawnimals is moving onto new projects in their Legends of Ninjatown series, so December 2012’s Ninja of the Month will be the final one produced by the company. And since this 7x7 inch plushy is closing the book on a three year long legacy, they’ve done something special with the Ragdoll Ninja. The terrycloth-like fabric, button eyes, and thick stitching make Ragdoll Ninja unique. And unlike other Ninjas, this one can sit upright, making it perfect for a shelf or table. He comes with the customary hangtag, card, and button, as well as a special scroll.
Order one of the 100 handmade Ragdoll Ninjas from Shawnimals for $30.
