I can’t help it, I replicated this cute tiger – I am a copy cat, omg!!!
The origin of this tiger is a “limited edition” stuffed-toy mascot of a 100% Malaysian made Chinese New Year movie,”大日子- Woohoo!” (Big Day – Woohoo!). Tiger is this year’s animal in Chinese astrology, they came in a set of 5 with different colors represented: Opulence, Abundance, Harmony, Auspicious, Peaceful.
I bought the last set from “Eu Yan Sang” (EYS), an Asia’s leading healthcare company specializes in Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). The set was sold at only RM68 (approx. US$21) and with every set sold, EYS will donate RM10 to the Spastic Children’s Association. I would buy more to giveaway as a Chinese New Year gift, such a meaningful gift to my loved ones while contributing to a good cause, win-win, why not?
I showed this 5 little cute tigers to my nieces and nephews, they want them too but my kids wouldn’t let them go. Aren’t they too cute for not owning 1? Perhaps EYS should reproduce them again for the charity cause. At the mean time, I have no choice but to replicate it and make a few for my sibling’s kids.
What about the movie? It is beyond my expectation…. it is superb, the 1st 100% local made Chinese New Year Movie, from story board, to casts, to film director, all Malaysians!!! Speaking of the casts, you’d be surprised….. they are Radio DJ’s (My FM) , TV hosts (Astro) & singers, and many of them are first timer in movie acting. To-date, they have broken 3.5 million box office since premiered on Jan 14. Bravo! “Malaysia Boleh”! (Malaysia Can).
This tutorial is meant to show you how to replicate a stuffed/plush toy for exceptional case , eg. replacement of your favorite plush toys which is no longer in production. No way to copy a plush toy that you can still get it from the shop, it is cheaper to buy than to make. No pattern will be given for this tiger as it might be copyrighted by EYS or the movie production company.
