Incredible, but they changed the description! Nov 22, 2008
Plush Cthulhu used to have the best description of any product on amazon, but they changed it!
It used to read:
-Softest Elder God
-New, improved great old one
-Plush yet all devouring
BRING THE OLD DESCRIPTION BACK! CTHULHU FHTAGN!

Eldritch, cyclopean, and cuddly Dec 31, 2004
By Jennifer Moquin
This little plush Cthulhu is well-made and adorable. If you can ignore the fact that he is probably secretly dreaming of your madness and destruction, he'd make a fine addition to your cubicle or collection.

What will Cthulhu think of being a green 8-inch plush toy? Jan 08, 2005
By Lawrance M. Bernabo
H(oward) P(hillips) Lovecraft wrote a whole bunch of short stories for pulp magazines such as "Weird Tales," many of which talked about the Great Cthulhu, a supremely powerful force of evil who was laying dormant deep beneath the Pacific Ocean, awaiting the time when he would return to power and turn the Earth into a waste land. Lovecraft's stories of the Great Old Ones, the cursed book called "The Necronomicon," scholars at Miskatonic University, and the Elder Gods were developed into what is now commonly known as the Cthulhu Mythos (a term coined by August Derleth). Other writers have added to the Cthulhu Mythos, which continues to expand to this day, but at the heart of it all is Cthulhu himself. So the idea that he has been turned into an 8-inch plush toy takes the concept of cuteness to a damp, dark hole where it has not seen the light of day for countless years.
Cthulhu (a.k.a. Fisherman's God, Great Old One, Him Who Lies Dreaming, Him Who Will Rise Again, etc.) was described by Lovecraft as follows: "a monster of vaguely anthropoid outline, but with an octopuslike head whose face was a mass of feelers, a scaly, rubbery-looking body, prodigious claws on hind and fore feet, and long, narrow wings behind." In addition to having "a fearsome and unnatural malignancy," Cthulhu is described as having "a somewhat bloated corpulence," which certainly explains why it has ended up as a plush toy, although I am not certain how accurate the green part ends up being.
Given the literary heritage of Cthulhu, it is amazing how much fun is being had with Lovecraft's greatest monstrous creation. There are Cthulhu for President t-shirts, a Campus Crusade for Cthulhu, and a marvelous on-line comic strip, "The Misadventures of Hello Cthulhu" (yes, think "Hello Kitty" with an unknowable evil walking around). I have even seen a Cthulhu made out of Lego parts (the Lego squid makes such things possible apparently). So a Cthulhu plush toy seems rather reasonable, and one of those brilliant examples of how the commercial impulse can manifest itself in diverse sections of popular culture. Can plush toys of Nyarlathotep and Azathoth be far behind? Stay tuned, boys and girls.

Don't believe the bad reviews! Mar 05, 2011
By Otto J. Frizzell
Don't believe the reviews that this toy is smaller than advertised. I bought the 12" and it is just that. A perfect size for a stuffed toy. Other people may have "been shipped" the wrong one (read: ordered) or maybe they have been driven mad and were expecting the real Cthulhu to come and devour them. In any case this toy is wonderful. It's soft and cute and full of ancient evil just as you would expect.
