The Old Ones do Christmas

8 inch tall Cthulhu plush – The venerable Cthulhu. All 8 inches of seething, boiling, raging, rampaging hatred. Ahh…. I do love the smell of fresh human sacrifice in the morning….

Toy Vault's first ever specialty plush item is based on H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu stories. The first figure is Cthulhu himself, 8-inches tall, made of beautiful green fabric and filled with plush and beanies.

Bugg's Take

Anyone who's ever known me long enough will know that I was, and still am, a huge HP Lovecraft fan. I remember pouring over his books and being utterly fascinated by the dark, cosmic tales he conjured.

Well guess what? I suppose Christmas has come early this year, as I stumbled across these totally adorable plush Lovecraftian monsters! From the good folks over at Entertainment Earth. *ahem*….if….anyone is stuck for….. you know….. what to get for me for….erm….. *hint hint*

Based on H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu stories. The Cthulhu Plush Slippers are made of quality fabric and your feet will never be warmer than when they're tucked cozily inside a cute pair of demons. One size available; fits men sizes 9 – 12

First Toy Vault brought us the plush Cthulhu. Now they bring us the Nyarlethotep, the Crawling Chaos, plush. "There are also other things, called by some demons and by others Gods. If possible, they are even more mysterious and powerful than the Old Ones: the Necronomicon, dread Book Of The Dead, calls them the Elder (or sometimes the Outer) Gods. Nyarlethotep, called the Crawling Chaos, is said to be amongst their number." Stands 8 inches tall.

According to H.P. Lovecraft, Shoggoths were (originally) mindless creatures created as servants/slaves by the Great Old Ones. They could assume whatever form their master wished in order to perform their task. Shoggoths are unruly servants becoming more intelligent and rebellious the longer the are employed. Eventually they may attempt to destroy their masters. HPL also wrote that Shoggoths are sometimes seen in visions from hallucinogenic plants.

According to H.P. Lovecraft, Deep Ones lives in marine environments, deep beneath the waves. The exact depths are unknown, and some say they dwell at the bottom of the oceans. Deep Ones live off of fish and offerings from human worshipers. Deep Ones are immortal and continue growing throughout their lives. Father Dagon and Mother Hydra are supposed to be two Deep Ones that are over 20 feet tall and several millions of years old. Plush stands 11 1/2 inches tall.

"Honey, better fire up the thousand virgin sacrifices….. we're having demons over for dinner…."
