Limited Edition TMNT Fugglers arrive in US

Published on: 19th December 2023

ToyMonster, in partnership with Addo Play, has unleashed the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Limited Edition Fugglers range at Walmart in the USA.

ToyMonster has announced the US launch of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Limited Edition Fugglers. The latest line of funny-ugly plush monsters are getting a Turtles twist, channelling the four fan-favourite, sewer-dwelling reptiles: Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael. These lean, green, mean TMNT Fugglers are now available at Walmart.com, ready to wreak some half-shell havoc this holiday season.

Fugglers is a quirky collection of funny-ugly monsters with a cult-like following of Fuggler fans around the world. Each character promises to ‘ruin your life and warm your heart’ with its mischievous antics and bonkers appearance: human-like teeth and vacant eyes are combined with a disturbing demeanour and signature BUTT-on hole.

Sent by special delivery, the TMNT Fugglers have hijacked a pizza delivery and stuffed it down themselves. The Limited Edition Fugglers also feature traits from their TMNT character:

  • Donatello wields his bo staff, using his ingenious inventions and technical prowess to outsmart enemies and provide technological solutions.
  • Michelangelo boasts his nunchaku, showcasing his carefree spirit and love for pizza as he spreads laughter and fights crime with a light-hearted approach.
  • Raphael brandishes his sais, emanating an intense gaze which reflects his rebellious nature as he takes on the bad guys with his fierce determination.
  • Leonardo, the Turtle’s fearless leader, wields his katana, ready to lead his brothers in battle against evil forces while upholding honour and discipline.

The Limited Edition TMNT Fugglers are available now at Walmart.com.

“At ToyMonster, we embrace the funny and the ugly,” said Jessica Hewawissa, head of Global Brand & Marketing. “Fugglers, with their unique and unconventional designs, offer a level of quirkiness that sets them apart from other toys. They push the limits of what a plush toy can be, resonating with those who seek something beyond the usual expectations for plush toys. We couldn’t be more excited to launch these Limited Edition TMNT Fugglers into the wild.”

ToyMonster, launching in partnership with Paramount and Addo, advises fans to start their Fuggler collection with these sewer-surfing monsters as there are limited quantities.

In the UK, Libertas Brands, which owns the exclusive rights to Fugglers, has outlined its plans for turning the plush brand into a licensing powerhouse. To find out more, click here to read an interview with Libertas’  Mark Kingston, first published in the November issue of Toy World.
