Back in 2009 Venezuelan artist & Illustrator Gabriel Mesa started sketching & developing some mischievous and playful characters he called Chichos. Soon after the characters evolved & were ready to come to life in the form of plush toys! When the Chichos were first being manufactured at Baraduo's Sewing Workshop they were close to 4.5' tall. Now Gabriel & Baraduo have decided to simplify the Chichos by making them smaller, now measuring a little over 3'. Now, both sizes of these boozy, bumpy, mischievous characters are available! Gabriel says the name Chicho was derived from the Spanish word "chichones" which translates to English as "bumps" like the bumps on the Chichos' head. I can totally see one of these plushes staggering down an alley, drunk & falling into a bunch of garbage cans! If anyone would like a Chicho of their own, you can contact Gabriel at or on Gabriel's Facebook & Twitter accounts.
