Working Wednesday – Yummy News

kidrobot yummy plush now available at select target stores
I wanted to share some exciting news with you today! You can now find these very special sized Yummy plush at select Target stores. For now the list of stores carrying them is limited, but hopefully they will do well and then maybe they will be available at all Targets. I made a pdf of the stores in case you want to try to find them in your area! If you do find them at your Target I would love to see a photo!

p.s. I’ve been working on a set of digital washi tapes for Kitschy Digitals (including the donut tape above) I can’t wait to show you all of them–and hope to have them up by next Wednesday.

    Well, what the heck?! We have a Target distribution center in town, but they don’t carry them at our local Target store? S’okay, I’m visiting a town nearby that’s on the list. Hopefully their Target still has some in stock.

  2. Claire says:

    That is beyond awesome. And hey, one of the Targets is right near my parent’s house! I think a little two-birds-one-stone trip is in order.

  3. Malinda says:

    CONGRATS!! I would race out right now and buy one but no Target Stores listed in LA :(

  4. Heidi Kenney says:

    Claire, thanks so much! Im really excited about it :) :)

  5. Heidi Kenney says:

    Malinda, thanks so much my dear! Im really sorry about that, I’m not sure how Target has chosen the “test stores” but I am hoping they will expand to all the stores if these do well :)

  6. Heidi Kenney says:

    Robyn, we have a Target distribution center really close to our Target too, and they are not on the list. Apparently these are target “test stores” which I am not sure how they determine that…but I am hoping the do well so they can expand to all the stores eventually!

  7. Wow–that IS exciting! Congrats, lady!

  8. Yay! I’m so very excited for you and for Target for recognizing and embracing an indie plush designer extraordinaire!

  9. Heidi Kenney says:

    Thanks so very much Abby! :)

  10. Heidi Kenney says:

    Thanks Melissa! :) :)

  11. rae says:

    aw man! the closest to me is almost four hours away! i need a pizza plush!

  12. mollie says:

    Yes! There’s a store close to me!

    Also: My Paper Crane digital washi tape? Sweet!

  13. jess says:

    Wow, four Targets in Oklahoma but not a single on in Washington or Oregon? Bummer for us west coasters. I question their marketing analysis!

  14. JLVerde says:

    Cool!

    Oh, and I found your cute keychains at Five Below. Of course, I splurged and bought three (to go with the one I already have).

  15. Kate says:

    I’m SO excited to see this! There’s a ton of them around the Chicago area – I know they will be successful! So happy for you! I’m running out to start buying them as Christmas gifts already :)

  16. Quiana says:

    No test-Targets in the Seattle area I guess. I hope they do really well so I can buy one soon!

  17. Sam says:

    that’s SO EXCITING, Heidi! Pretty much every one of my business-planning discussions with my husband starts with, “When Target picks up my line….” so I would just DIE! congrats!

  18. Susan Wayland says:

    Our Target (Rockaway, NJ) is on the list!! I’ll keep an eye out for them!

  19. Heidi Kenney says:

    thanks so much Susan! :)

  20. Heidi Kenney says:

    @Sam – thanks Sam! I was excited when Five Below started selling the keychains, but actually said to my husband—”Well I’ll be over the moon if they are ever sold at target” haha

  21. Heidi Kenney says:

    Quiana, I’m sorry about the limited list, i really do hope they expand to all the stores so everyone has a chance :(

  22. Heidi Kenney says:

    Kate, thanks so much!! :)

  23. Heidi Kenney says:

    JLVerder, aw :) I hope you got some that you love!

  24. Heidi Kenney says:

    Jess, yeah I am not sure how they choose the test stores either, it sort of boggles my mind. You’d think there would be at least 1 in each state. :(

  25. Heidi Kenney says:

    Rae, well I do hope they will expand and be all over soon! But yeah there are not any stores very close to me either, and I really wanted to see them in the store in person haha

  26. becky farley says:

    Lauren and I looked Sat. at one of the stores on the list near us – no luck :) but maybe they’re just not out yet. We had the manager all concerned hahaha not on purpose – he just was! I think this is super awesome!

    Greetings from the McKnight Road Target (Pittsburgh PA).

    I only wish they were at the Target in East Liberty (in the city proper) which is within walking distance of my house.

  28. nicoleh says:

    I checked out 3 stores in the Michigan area and I had no luck, is there a release date?

  29. Heidi Kenney says:

    Nicoleh, were they stores from the list? They were actually released on the 27th of last month…so if they were stores from the list they might be sold out, but I would call and speak to the manager to be sure? They are in the plush area of the toy section. Sadly none of the targets near me are on the list :’(
