I am opening this bug because I have been getting a pretty steady stream of emails from individuals who want us to bring back the plush toy as a Mozilla Store item.

So if you feel strongly about this, please vote for this bug. I will tally up the votes and determine if the volume is significant enough to warrant bringing this item back.

The Firefox plush is the cutest thing in the entire store as far as I'm concerned. Please bring it back, and if possible, add a Thunderbird plush too!!!

I was planning on purchasing this toy, and to my dismay it was no longer in the store as I went to add it in my cart the other day.  I agree a thunderbird plush shall also be made.

I managed to buy one right before it vanished from the store, but would still like to see it return; others should have the chance to own this adorable plushie as well!

I never got a chance to buy it.  Every time I click the link to the store -- which features the famous Firefox Plush Toy, I can't find it in the store.  I mean EVERY time in the last year!

I LOVE XIAO SHUNGMAOs!  They are the Bear-Cat's Meow!  The Lesser Panda is still a Panda and Firefox is cause for Pandemonium for this lovely plush toy Xiao Shung-Mao Lesser Panda Firefox!

Please don't make me pay $500 on eBay!

"Wah!"

(Wah is another name for the red panda. Named that by explorers because that's a sound they make.)

Bring it back! Please! Same supplier, too; I've seen other Wah plushies and they're nowhere near as cute!

I opened an account to vote for this.  I only went to the store to look for the plush toy, and it was gone. :(  Bring back the plush panda!

I'm only hoping that if this vote succeeds then the plush toy arrives into the international store too.  I spent ages waiting for the European store to open as the shipping charges from US store looked a bit pricey, then when it does, both stores have stopped selling it :(

Heh, I was logging on in hopes of getting one for my girlfriend, (you know, to help remind her why she shouldn't click on the blue e) only to discover it had been discontinued. Please bring back the firefox plush toy! 

Thank you!

I have one but I want to get another one, they would have been great to have tons of these to use for the Firefox tv ad competition, I just read about that and went to the store to buy a new one to use in an ad I was going to usbmit since mine is sort of dirty. I didnt see them for sale and I think you really need to get some more!

Surely not? Please bring back the legend that is the plush soft toy!!!

I just voted on this bug for the Firefox plush toy, and I would also be interested in a Thunderbird plush toy as well. The Firefox push is very cute, and I was thinking of getting a Firefox for my girlfriend, and of course myself. :)

My children use Firefox and are very disappointed that they cannot have their own 'firefoxes'. For the sake of my reputation as a caring parent the toy must return.

This bug's been open more than 6 months?  Any chance someone's come up with a resolution? :)

Firefox is an awesome plush toy.  He hangs around our office.  I want one for myself, too.  Please bring him back soon!

The Firefox plush toy is from the Leosco Collection; I found an online vendor selling it:

http://www.stuffedark.com/pandared.htm

Of course, the sad thing is that buying it from here won't support the Mozilla project! So if you buy it here, donate the price difference ($6!) to the Mozilla corporation so that they get the money they would have gotten had you bought it from them.

Come on, Mozilla people, get this back in the Store. :)

They're out of the small ones - only medium and large (mem leak?) sizes available. Props to philor for the link.

A small story for you:
My name's Ryan, and I live in AK.
My girlfriend and I got together two years ago while we were both going to college together, and fell in love extremely fast. But then a year ago she went to Colorado to finish up her Veterinary degree. It's been **** us since.
Currently right now, to remember me, she has a pillow of mine on her bed that she cuddles with at night. But sadly pillows lose their sentimentality fairly quickly, as they're just simple pillows.
Well her birthday is coming up, November 12th to be exact, and I've been planning to get her a Fx plushie to replace that sorry pillow. But now, lo and behold, I can't get one.

So...do you think you could bring it back...for my girlfriend's (and that poor pillow's) sake?

I think a poll on the Mozilla Store page would get more answers than votes on bugzilla.

Comment 42

Please bring the plushie back! It looks cute and I missed out on it. I wanted it so bad at one point I even tried looking in other spots for it!

Comment 43

If this plush toy is going to rebirth, maybe adding a collar with the Firefox logo medallion or just the Firefox logo medallion would be good, as without that, it's just a cute plush toy and noone outside the project would know what this is about.

-- My two cents

Comment 44

I like it as it was... Vote to get it back!
I propose two are added to the store:

1. The actual red panda like it was (it would be great if $1 from each of these could go to a charity/zoo that support red pandas).

2. The Japanese mascot Foxkeh, which would make a much better plush than trying to make a plush of the logo

I felt strongly enough about this to e-mail "Storesuggestions@mozillafoundation.org" last year:  
A friend in Germany got me to switch to Firefox & I'm quite happy with it.  He also said to support Firefox buy buying stuff... and mentioned a Firefox plushie (a red panda stuffed toy) ... but I don't see one at the site.  

I think you should have two Firefox toys:  
an adorable stuffed toy suitable for delighting small children & *ahem* impressionable females, and  
a mini-Firefox plushie which would sit on top of a monitor (like the Lucky Kitties for sale at Japanese stores & Anime conventions).  

For the power of cute, as it relates to the Red Panda, I refer you to:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbvlOqWCPCc&search=panda

I am in favor of the plush fox ,as well as ones for all the mozilla products.  Some of the computer geeks are "girlie" types who adore our computers with stuff like that.

I agree with you.
I liek plush toys and stuff, and place a few around my computer, but I'd rather have something that is related to my computer.

To be real honest, I was straight-up SHOCKED, and indeed almost sickened when I found out that you cannot buy a plush firefox anymore.  Why on earth would you remove such an adorable item from your product lineup?  What is the deal here?

If it costs too much to make and there aren't enough orders, then cry me a river...JUST CHARGE MORE.  

WE WANT THE PLUSH FIREFOX!!!  I would also like to second something I read earlier in these comments...make a plush Thunderbird too.  You should also consider making a plush bug for BugZilla too.

Finally, if you don't want to bring back the plush firefox, then please post contact information for the manufacturer so that people who REALLY want one can still custom order one.

I want the plush and the messenger bag.  The girls go nuts over the plushy and just kinda follow you around... ;)

It would look cute poking its head out of the bag...

There's a new page to vote for the next item in the Mozilla Store, so check it out to vote for a new plush toy!

http://store.mozilla.org/voting.php
is it going to be a red panda, or something made of the logo? Maybe someone can clarify in the poll?

They should be in the International Store in about two weeks, fyi. More at http://www.intothefuzz.com/2008/02/05/firefox-plushies-are-here/.

I have seen the Foxkeh Mozilla Firefox plush doll and I wish to have that one over the one on the site. the Foxkeh one is super cute and I know kids all over the world would love it. Please bring that one back!

Comment 73

While originally verified fixed, the bug should remain open to track interest from users in this new decade.

I know many people personally who would pay for a Firefox Foxkeh plushie. In addition, an Ars Technica comment thread has been glowing with interest from simply the thumbnail of a Firefox plushie:  http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2014/02/gallery-the-amazing-booth-designs-of-mobile-world-congress/?comments=1

I can understand the expense of developing such, but 10$+ per item seems fair for a geek-favorite.
@John im reopening the bug since the plushies are not avaliable any more :(

We want Foxkeh!!!
