So, today as a treat for fans while at an exhibit for retailers, CepiaLLC set up a Facebook Live to show off their upcoming stuff— Gold Wave, Kittens vs Gherkins, Dogs versus Squirls, Bears vs Donuts, and while not part of the Versus World, another cute soft beanie product– Pop Art Soft which are very artistic Elephants.
As per usual, I’m not going to talk about everything that was shown (It was… a lot and just gathering screenshots took me over 3 hours), but just focus on some of the specific designs I’m excited for. I won’t be including any designs I mentioned in my last post when they did the Zoom, but all the ones there that aren’t out yet (or at least not in Bean size) are still heavily on the wanted list. I’m not sure when I’ll be adding these to my wishlist page (maybe after thinking it over and possibly narrowing down more? WE SHALL SEE…), but for now, I wanted to take my time to wrap my head around everything because, again, it was a lot.
Off-hand, I’m glad the Gold Wave will be split up into parts. Part of why Purple Wave was so rough is because not all the ones actually in Purple Wave were available in every bag and that wasn’t clear. There were even several that arrived months later. If Gold Wave can prevent that happening again, that’s great.
We’ll start with Cats vs Pickles stuff :)
So, firstly, the very first thing to jump out at me was this adorable Pickle:
I’ve said for a while I really wanted more various Pickle shades and I loove this color and it’s just really cute overall. There was also this really lovely colored Snail? Cat:
I also really adored Sparky. It’s nice seeing the black and white since I feel like a lot of black and white designs have generally been made blue or purple and I like it… actually just being Black and White. Also this cute like… Warrior Princess Cat?
I also really want to see more of this cat, sure, it’s just a pink cat in a sailor uniform, but it speaks to me.
There’s also so many where I’m still not 100% sure if I want or not, but am at least really intrigued by the design. Some are generally unsure where there’s things I like and things I don’t like, others I just really need to see in person to know for sure, but for some, the issue was that they were too small to really get a proper look at them and we never really got to see them in full. And for Chonks/Jumbos, I just would love to see them in Bean form preferably.
The lovely Olive Loaf was shown during the last Zoom too, and is the one exception here as I didn’t put it in that post, and I still can’t decide.
Kittens vs Gherkins continue to just be adorable and I love so many that I am very tempted to actually buy a full box of them (and hey, it’d be a fun unboxing video, right?). For one, Baby Finley!!
Next up, Bears vs Donuts! It was so exciting to see them and they are somehow even cuter than expected. One really neat thing is they even had different types of donuts! I really love all of these so much.
