chimera |kīˈmi(ə)rə (noun)
: an organism composed of two or more species.

What if a bunny wants to swing from trees? What if a monkey really likes carrots? What if an elephant wants to fly? What if a bat wants to be super strong?

Chimeras make all of this possible. With interchangeable ears, arms, and legs, Chimeras makes plush toys more dynamic and more fun.

Chimeras come in pairs, so that kids can start exchanging body parts immediately. Ages: 3+.

Avik’s background was in product design. Rich’s background was in graphic design and illustration. We met in architecture school and started a long back-and-forth about a wide range of project ideas. Soon after graduation, we started a design firm in Portland, Oregon. We affectionately refer to it as a “design sweatshop” where we do a combination of graphic design, product design and architecture.

In 2010, we released a product of our own called Rock Band, which was the first watch band designed for iPod nano. This created a media frenzy and launched an entire brand of Apple accessories known as iLoveHandles.

Long before we were thinking of Apple accessories, we had ideas for toys that were fun and that allowed kids to be creative. Chimeras is our first such toy.

Good job, Vat!

Another example of someone doing a better job selling our product than we do… Avik: Good job, Vat! Avik: We’re idiots.
