Gund debuts Star Trek: The Original Series plush line

Gund has debuted its new line of Star Trek: The Original Series huggable plush.

Each character will be dressed in Starfleet attire and featured as a cuddly animal with Captain Kirk as a lion, Dr. Bones as a dog, Lieutenant Commander Spock as a cat, Lt. Uhura as a teddy bear and the Enterprise’s favorite engineer, Scotty as a monkey. 

“This is the perfect time to launch Gund’s Star Trek collection as the franchise prepares to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their first TV episode,” said Shallu Chhabra, Gund’s director of licensing.

“By combining over a hundred years of plush expertise with Star Trek, Gund looks forward to bringing these soft, huggable products to fans of all ages.”

The range will be available this spring.
