The Paleontological Research Institution has come up with a unique way to raise funds for its outreach program. They’ve launched a Kickstarter where a pledge of $15 or more can get you this adorable 8″ plush Devonian trilobite. It’s a unique and very fun way to raise money in the name of science.

See another picture and a video about the program after the break.

Just stop it right there with all the cuteness. Heroes and villains alike, Etsy shop owner Handmade Stuffs wants you to “embrace your nerdiness” with these adorable plushies. I think she’s covered nearly every major fandom too: Harry Potter, Star Trek, Star Wars, Supernatural, Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, TMNT, Doctor Who, Walking Dead, Adventure Time, Firefly, Sherlock, He-Man, Deadpool, Batman, and I’m sure I probably missed a few. Phew!

Check out more super cute “stuffs” after the break…

How bad to you just want to squish this sweet unicorn zebra hybrid right now?

There are four different adorable plush Zoonicorns named Valeo, Promithea, Aliel, and Ene and they are on a mission to “Enrich youth with life adventures.” The characters also appear in storybooks where the colorful friends visit zoo animals (in their dreams) to help them learn valuable life lessons.

The Zoonicorns made their debut this year at New York International Toy Fair. Since then the official website has launched and the magical toys can be purchased for $15 each. The first companion book, Buffy Meets the Zoonicorns, is available for $17.

I hope these cute plushies are a hit. I love when great toys are paired with great stories. And hopefully they won’t ever have to worry about sketchy encounters with Grundles.

Check out more pics of the cuteness after the break.

The first time I saw “The Neverending Story, I knew what I wanted for my birthday that year (and every year after)—Falkor The Luck Dragon.

The wonderful Laura at Game Guardians makes a plush version of Falkor. It’s not on sale at the time of writing, but it’s worth keeping an eye out because she opens orders once a month.

Head after the break to see the pictures and then get in line. Behind me, please. I call first dibs.

Pikachu is ready for the boardroom in the business suit with glasses and a briefcase. He even comes with three different business card designs. The plushie celebrates the start of Spring in Japan and the time most Japanese companies have new hires begin work.

Unfortunately, Pikachu might not get far in the business world if he insists on not wearing pants.

He’s the first in a year of seasonal Pikachu designs that are planned. A new one will be coming out each month. In April he’ll be celebrating Boys’/Children’s Day with a helmet and carp streamers like the ones that decorate Japanese homes for the day.

Check out the business card designs after the break along with April’s Pikachu.
