Good-Humored Startup Announces New Irreverent (and Hopeful) Product "Dooshkinz" Through "Kickstarter" Campaign.

Dooshkinz Series 1

Love Them. Hate Them. Collect Them.

The countdown is on for the new central Ohio joint venture DooshCo to gain financial backing to build “Doosh Nation”. The group is looking to the popular crowd-funding site Kickstarter to fund their anti-toy project "Dooshkinz".

What are Dooshkinz? According to DooshCo Founder Chad Boyles, "Dooshkinz are politically incorrect plush toys fashioned after stereotypes of the people we all love to hate. Think of them as a mix between the popular Garbage Pail Kids of the 80's and modern day Homie capsule dolls."

The plushies poke fun at people by combining the most obnoxious characteristics related to attitude with "douche bag" behavior. "We all know douche bags. While they may be irritating, Dooshkinz toys liven things up by providing an outlet to chuckle at these behaviors," states Shelby X. Hunt, Dooshkinz partner.

There are six dolls in the first series designed by seasoned artist Sam Fout. The series includes Hipster, Gamer, Teabagger, Goth, Wanna-B and Guido. The group is hoping Kickstarter will assist in creating the production prototype of Hipster. Hipster Doosh is characterized by a beanie cap, waif like appearance, tattoos, loafers, skinny jeans, glasses, pencil thin mustache and a drink. Sound familiar? Odds are you have had an encounter with him.

Guido: Known for traveling in packs of fellow over-tanned, fist-pumpin’, horrible music listening, bad tattoo having, collar-poppin’, steroid juicing Dooshkinz. The Guido sometimes wears sunglasses at night, and always starts and ends a statement with the word “Bro.” Whether you find this orange skinned all-star in the gym, tanning bed, laundromat, or the club, just know he will always be DTF.

Gamer: This slob with no job is a greasy-skinned fat body built entirely on snack food, candy, and energy drinks. Gamer can be found in his parents’ basement gathering the latest Call of Duty achievements while belting out racist and homophobic epithets to his online opponents. He can go weeks without showering because in the virtual world hygiene is not a factor. Especially since the only female ever touching his skid marked tightie-whities is Mommy.

Goth: This misunderstood super star can be described as if The Cure and Marilyn Manson had a malnourished butt baby. Crying for attention by cutting himself and claiming “it’s the only way I can feel.” Goth absolutely does not like being mistaken for his pussy brother Emo Dooshkin.

Teabagger: He is often found at Second Amendment rallies pointing his fat “prepper” finger at everyone but himself. Teabagger especially loves him some “Fair and Balanced” Fox News before bedtime. “Love it or leave it, Libs. This is ‘Merica!”

Wanna-B: Wanna-B is often sighted in the suburbs by day and the Taco Bell parking lot by night. If you are really lucky, you’ll run into Wanna-B after a long night of a Mad Dog 20/20 and bubonic chronic blow down. He just might spit you some “Dope Ass Rhymes” about life on the streets and cul-de-sacs.

With a little less than 30 days to go and 8K to raise, DooshCo is hopeful the Kickstarter Community will respond in order to bring “Hipster" to market. If stretch goals are met, production of the remaining characters in the series will be begin. Boyles concludes, “We are hoping people will appreciate the sense of humor and support our endeavor. At the end of the day, we just want to make people laugh.”
