2020 has brought about some truly unprecedented times, but the team at Squishable, a New York City-based toy company specializing in plush, believes some of the best medicine is laughter!
And who better to write prescriptions to get you through the rest of this year than the Mysterious Doctor Plague and his equally adorable and haunting partner, Plague Nurse? With a touch of plush, a dash of cuteness and just a sprinkle of spookiness, these two are here to help, whether you need a potion brewed, an infestation banished, a lesson on handwashing or simply a pumpkin bread recipe, they have your back…and front…or whatever other body part you may be worried about!
The Mysterious Plague Doctor
|Medieval plague doctors thought the smelly herbs and flowers they stuffed in their masks would keep them healthy. They didn’t. But their impenetrable (and spooky!) leather outfits actually did! That coat was like the hazmat suit of their day. Today we have soap, so unless you particularly like wearing a lot of leather, maybe just wash your hands instead. Actually, wash your hands either way. Now wash them again. The Plague Doctor is 7 squishy inches of plush spookiness and comes with a glow in the dark lantern! (Please be aware, there may be some variation in the glow-in-the-dark color of the lantern)! |

|We all need a partner. Sherlock has his Watson, Robin Hood has his Little John. The Plague Doctor has the Plague Nurse. If you were about to do medieval battle against infectious miasmas armed with only a lantern, a rudimentary concept of personal hygiene, and a beak full of smelly herbs and flowers, you’d want a second-in-command who’s got your back. And your front. And whatever other body parts you’re worried about, which is probably all of them. This Plague Nurse was designed by fan request as a counterpart for our Plague Doctor Squishable. The side of the lantern has been swapped so the two can hold hands. Rest assured, they would only do so after washing those hands extensively. The Plague Nurse is 7 squishy inches of plush spookiness and comes with a glow in the dark lantern! (Please be aware, there may be some variation in the glow-in-the-dark color of the lantern)!|
