September 25, 2015

Green Brook, NJ – September, 2015 – Pretty Ugly™, LLC is excited to announce an UGLYDOLL OHM collection of sterling silver jewelry being released October 1st.

“We are ecstatic to work with OHM. OHM is sure to bring our lovable and colorful characters to life in a really memorable way!” said Drew Matilsky, Managing Partner.

The UGLYDOLL OHM collection features four of the ugliest characters Wage™, Babo™, OX™, and Ice-Bat™. These four have been cast in sterling silver to wear on a bracelet or necklace.


“Ugly is not normal. Ugly is unique. Ugly is honest. Ugly is real. Ugly is natural. It stands out,” says Kit Junya, Head Ohmie at OHM. “Uglydoll like OHM is the Black Sheep of their respective spheres. It’s been a joy to work together to create some ugly little friends to carry with me everywhere.”

“Ohmily is the ugly duckling of bead brands. We notice ugly stuff all the time! Beauty is overrated, but ugly catches attention. It’s something to acknowledge and appreciate,” says Jenny at Ohm. “It makes us curious — and fun — are we still fun if we call ourselves fun? Ugly catches attention, and Ohm and Ugly are the perfect match. We make such a cute couple!”

To celebrate our new partnership UGLYDOLL and OHM will be launching a series of social media contests for the release. Follow us on Instagram @uglydollusa and @ohmbeads where we will be doing a series of giveaways starting Oct 1st. ($45 value each), use the hashtag #UGLYOHM when reposting the images, or sharing any photos of your new treasures.


David Horvath & Sun-Min Kim created the first UGLYDOLL hand-sewn plush toy in 2001. Since the inception of the first character, Wage™, who David drew on a love letter to Sun-Min, UGLYDOLL has grown into an entire universe of characters, stories, and products for all ages. The UGLYDOLL brand was launched in 2002 by Pretty Ugly, LLC of Green Brook, NJ.


The property is distinguished by David & Sun-Min’s unique aesthetic and voice defining, “ugly” as distinctive and unique, that we should be celebrating that which makes us different, never hiding the twists or turns which make us who we are, inside and out. The award-winning UGLYDOLL characters appear in a variety of toys, books, apparel and other licensed products that are available in thousands, of stores, worldwide.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
