Are they Ugly or just a little off? No matter, we love these dolls #LX11.

Uglydolls are the cute plush dolls that kids are carrying around  - even Sasha Obama.  Unbeknownst to most fans, Uglydolls have actually been around for 10 years, but they’ve just started growing in popularity. 

For this line, there are 15 ugly, down right unattractive characters with quirky, amusing character narratives behind each one. Loved by all age groups, Uglydolls are headed to the big screens. 

Illumination Entertainment in partnership with Universal Pictures has acquired rights to turn Ugly dolls franchise and is turning it into an animated feature film.  The partnerships between the groups plan to develop the property with a range of media opportunities.  Uglydolls has come along way from the first doll that was hand sewn in 2001 by creator Sun-Min Kim and David Horvath.
