I have a got a super adorable squeezable group of friends to share with you. You’re going to instantly fall in love with this adorable family. The Clump-o-Lump Squid-o the Squid from Knock Knock is my family’s new pet. Check out these adorable Clump-o-Lumps. My 5-year old just received the Squid-o the Squid from Knock Knock #NGGiftGuide.
[start-box]I am Squid-o the Squid. I love to hide and squeeze and swim, but what I love most of all is zipping and matching so I can flit like bird, ribbit like a frog, or pounce like a tiger. You would think I would get my arms and legs confused, but I’m actually quite graceful—and I can type 120 words per minute. In my free time, I explore caves and travel.
Knock Knock was founded in 2002 with the goal of making witty, intelligent, surprising gift and stationery products. Since then we’ve expanded our line again and again, into books, accessories, office products, and more. We’ve recently enjoyed bringing our off-kilter sensibility to kids, showering the shorties with activity books, pads, and travel bingo.
And now, there’s Clump-o-Lump! In the fall of 2010, while guest-lecturing at Pasadena’s famed Art Center College of Design, Knock Knock head honcho Jen Bilik met Max Knecht, an insanely talented industrial design student. Out of a vintage suitcase he pulled the first hand-sewn Clump-o-Lump prototypes, about as charming then as they are now. Jen was smitten.
We quickly acquired the line from Max, though he’s still involved with its creation, execution, and expansion, thank goodness. As we’ve shown the family of creatures to an ever-expanding inner circle, everybody who’s come into contact with Clump-o-Lump has fallen in love—in fact, no new product has ever been this unanimously embraced within the company.[end-box]
As you can see, we’ve had a lot of fun with Squid-o the Squid. I caught Squid-o enjoying a snack and some juice earlier today. I wouldn’t be surprised if he wants to go trick-or-treating with us tomorrow.
