Clump-o-lump. Max knecht.

Blog Widget by LinkWithin

It’s a…bee-o-shark-o-frog-o? Well, it could be with this adorable family of plush animals designed by Max Knecht for the innovative and design-driven Knock Knock. Each animal zips into three separate pieces, dismantling the head from the torso, and the torso from the bottom. The toy is meant to encourage imagination and fun, mix-matching body parts and personality quirks.
Tig-o-the Tiger loves to roar, bite and pounce, while also enjoying meditating on life. Bee-o- the Bee flies, buzzes and stings (only when necessary), but also practices ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arranging. The shark plays in an underwater bowling league in its spare time. Each clump-o-lump can switch up their natural capabilities by swapping a key section with one of their buddies.
When their pieces are separated, you glimpse the white representation of bone surrounded by the red depiction of flesh. For even crazier creatures, zip together more than three parts and see what you can come up with.
The Clump-o-Lumps were introduced to the head of Knock Knock, Jen Bilik, by talented student Knecht when she was guest lecturing at Pasadena’s Art Center College of Design in the fall of 2010, and the rest is history.
The family of six clump-o-lumps are available as a whole or individually, and are made up of: Tig-o the Tiger, Frog-o the Frog, Shark-o the Shark, Bee-o the Bee, Squid-o the Squid and Bird-o the Bird.
Animals range from about 7″ x 22″ x 6.5″ to 7″ x 32″ x 6.5″
All creatures are constructed of 100% polyester fleece, plastic eyes and plastic zipper with metal pull.
No animals are harmed in the unzipping of parts.

Fully tested and compliant with ASTM, CPSA, CPSIA (35005 LT-01/2012-01), FHSA, CA Proposition 65, as well as Canadian (CCPSA), European (EN 71), and Australian toy safety and labeling requirements.
