The world of Cats Vs. Pickles is expanding.

Launched at Toy Fair New York this past February, the line of collectible plush inspired by viral memes became an instant hit with kids and collectors this year. Now, the line includes two new scales for kids to love: Jumbos and Huggers.

Cats Vs. Pickles Jumbos are 10-inch plush characters with weighted bottoms. The first wave of super-soft, bean-filled Jumbos includes six characters to collect: Galacticat, Piñata Pop, Sprinkles, Mint Chippie, Water-Meow-Lon, and Hank.

The Cats Vs. Pickles Huggers collection is even bigger with a collection of six characters that stand approximately 20-inches tall and 8-inches wide. The first wave includes Water-Meow-Lon, Starla, Kitty Dog, Pepper, Candi Nana, and Big Dill.

“We have been so touched by the way that kids of all ages have embraced the Cats vs Pickles characters this year,” says James Russell Hornsby, CEO, Cepia, LLC. “The brand has struck a chord as I think everyone has at some point been a pickle; everyone just wants to be loved. With the holidays fast approaching, we are so happy to see the joy that Cats vs Pickles is sparking with so many people and we wanted to bring fans something new and bigger before the end of the year.”


Interest in the newest additions to the growing Cats Vs. Pickles range is heavy, though families looking to bring them home for the holidays need to act fast. The pre-holiday launch finds the new plushies available through the official Cats Vs. Pickles webstore or at Learning Express Toys in Lake Zurich, Illinois, the exclusive U.S. launch partner for the range.
