Jenna Mourey AKA Jenna Marbles is closing in on becoming one of the first three YouTube creators to reach ten million subscribers, and when she achieves that remarkable milestone, she’ll have to share the glory with her two co-stars. Mourey’s dogs, Kermie Worm and Mr. Marbles, appear in almost every one of her videos and are a constant source of cuteness for Mourey and her fans. She has now taken things to the next level by creating plush toy versions of the two dogs, which fans can purchase if they want their own furry companion to squeeze.
Mourey appeared on What’s Trending to introduce the new toys. Apparently, they took a very long time to make and had to be built from prototypes. Personally, I don’t see how it could be that complicated; my plush toy criteria are ‘looks super kawaii and makes a squeaky noise when you squeeze it.’
Mourey has also posted a video on her own channel showing off her creations, which bear a striking likeness to the real life dogs. When Kermie and Mr. Marbles stay very still, it’s hard to tell them apart from the plushies, though I’m pretty sure the ones Mourey throws at her light switch are not her real dogs.
YouTube’s #1 most subscribed woman is just the latest creator to seek alternative revenue streams outside of her main channel. The plush toys, which cost $13.50 and are available for Mourey’s personal website, give her a way to honor her beloved doggies, please her fans, and make a little coin on the side.
