Mini Uglydoll Clip on Characters

Wage Uglydoll clip on collectible trend at TAOS Gifts
Wage, the original Uglydoll

The Uglydoll was born on the bottom of little love notes a man wrote for his girlfriend, little Wage was originally just a doodle until the woman decided to turn him into a cuddly toy to present to her lover.

This started the birth of the Uglydoll family! With their funny faces, oddball shapes and characters they became a massive hit and are now highly collectible little monsters!

You can meet some of the Uglydoll family at TAOS Gifts, we have a selection of highly collectible plush Mini Uglydolls that come with clips for you to fix onto your clothes, keys, bags and accessories.

Wage Orange Uglydoll Clip on.

Wage is a hard worker, just like you!

He works at the local Supermarket and wears his apron to serve his customers best.

Do the supermarket know that Wage works there?

Nope. But Wage doesn’t mind. He likes to put things in bags, especially snacks. Wage is best friends with Babo, but there is always room for one more (you).

The two of them can often be found on the street trying to make friends with bus stops, phone boxes, and other lonely creatures.
Wage hates for anyone to be lonely! What’s with that look? Is Wage happy? Sure he is! He smiles on the inside.

The next time you go grocery shopping remember to take Wage along on your adventures.

Poe is an Ugly Dragon, apparently, but we think he’s really quite sweet and he certainly doesn’t look fearsome!

Ugly Dragons come from the Ugly Dragon Mountain. But Poe has left the safety of his caverns in search of his big dreams.

The other day he had a big dream about a big scoop of Chocolate  Ice Cream.

While most Ugly Dragons sleep all day and fly all night, Poe is more into cars, trucks, bikes and anything that lets him sit down while moving.

Flying is hard. You have to flap your wings around all the time! Can Poe ride with you?

bright pink Uglydoll Tray at TAOS Gifts
Tray, the brainy one

Tray is a bright pink Uglydoll, she’s the brains of the bunch.

Not because she is smart, but because she has three brains…..one in each lump, or one per eye, as Babo likes to point out.

Tray is also the hungriest of all the Uglydolls, and has a desperate need for Blueberry Pie.  Some say her eyes are blue because of her craving for it.

Tray often combines her hunger for pie with her brainpower to talk Babo into getting food for her. Unfortunately, Babo usually brings back a branch, a rock, or something even less tasty.

If you want to make Tray extra happy, sit her next to you in the subway, or in your car. It makes her feel important.

Abima is a red Uglydoll and totally out of control!

He’s got his hand in the cookie jar, and his mind on the next adventure, which is probably going to involve bouncing off the walls and knocking over expensive stuff.

He only knocks over the expensive stuff.

Not to worry though. Abima is very protective and would always watch out for you.

Are you scared of the dark? So is Abima! Oh. Anyway, Abima loves to visit his favorite cousin Wage.

They look like they could be related, right? Maybe he’s your cousin too.

Blue Uglydoll Ice bat at TAOS Gifts
Ice Bat is a Cool Dude!

Ice Bat is a cool Uglydoll character,  he comes from an Ice Cave and loves hiding inside Ice Chests. Everything he touches turns to Ice, yet profoundly he warms your heart.

Ice Bat thinks you are cool and he wants to chill with you.

He wants to hang out with you or just hang upside-down, if that’s OK with you!

Ice Bat is there for you when you feel like you may be loosing your cool, or feeling like a fool.

Don’t panic! Don’t stress! Grab Ice Bat and put him to the test.

OX is a funny-looking green plush Uglydoll.
What kind of name is OX?

No, not like the animal OX, as in HUG and KISS!

How can he hug you with such short arms? OX uses his ears!

He’s not a very good listener, but he puts his ears to good use in many other ways! OX is great at magic, and his best trick is turning your stuff into his stuff.

His best buddy Wedgehead calls that stealing, but OX just wants to borrow things from you for a few hundred years. He promises to put everything back when he’s done.

What he wants to steal most are kisses, whether they’re in the chocolate variety or just plain, and he promises to be your friend if you would lend him a hand, or an ear!
