Designer Sharon Lea Larsen and Aurora have teamed up for a re-launch based on Larsen’s “Cat-a-pillars” from the early 2000s. The new Kittipillers and Puppillons lines will feature 10 cats and dogs with trademark sparkle wings and distinct charms. Kittipillers include Daisy, Sunshine, Pansy, and Rainbow, and Puppillons include Poodikins, Blossom, Sugarbug, Sweetpea, Violetta, and Rosie. Each comes with a double-sided hangtag detailing the character’s personality. A brush for extra long hair comes with select styles, adding play value. Each character also includes a loop for hanging.
