Before we opened the store 7 years ago, I was home sick in bed one day, feeling miserable. My husband came in with two UglyDolls - the original Tray and Target. They were still hand-stitched at the time and only sold at Giant Robot. It's corny to say, but they brought a smile to my face and made me feel better.
here. But they're still not mass-marketed at the local big-box discount store, which is a probably good thing because my husband has a tattoo of Tray and Target holding hands. (His look of horror when I suggested the possibility of UglyDolls hitting the shelves of Wal-mart was priceless.)
If you've never heard of UglyDolls, the story of how the company got its start from the international love letters of a couple in a long-distance relationship is a sweet one.
