Everyone likes a good iron girder. But have you ever eyed up a building that you just want to hug?

Neither have we.

But we have discovered a group of plush toy developers who have. And now, they are looking to share their passion for iconic US buildings with the globe, through a new Kickstarter campaign.

Squeezable Skyline is attempting to raise $25,000 to fund its range of plush buildings, including the Sears Tower and the Empire State Building.

Should the firm be successful, it already has a design portfolio of 22 famous American landmark towers lined up for production.

With nearly a month left to raise its goal, the team has already received around £4,000 from 67 backers.

The firm – hoping to target the tourist and keepsake market – has, understandably been met with some mixed reactions.
