Designer Teneisha Jones brings an amusing sense of humor to her designs for plush toys. None of her plush toys resemble normal stuffed animals. Instead, they look more like Anime-style creatures.

The Atlanta-based Jones has a number of plush toy designs on her site. Check it out for even more bizarre plush toys in her portfolio. Her work includes stand-alone figures, freakish puppets and larger size creations.

Implications - Consumers are looking for unconventional designs in items that they are familiar with. Providing a different angle on a classic product provides a feeling of comfort while being new and exciting. Companies could focus on creating everyday items while incorporating a cutting-edge aesthetic in order to attract more shoppers.
