It's no secret that oddities and cryptids have been steadily gaining popularity over the last few years. From documentaries on mysterious creatures to paranormal investigation shows, it's clear that the fascination with the unknown continues to captivate our imaginations.
At 16% Nation, we understand what it's like to be different and have an undying curiosity about mysterious creatures and phenomena. Whether it's Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster or another cryptid, we believe our shared fascination is something worth celebrating - and that's why we've created this one-stop shop to provide enthusiasts with the products they need to explore their interests.
What are Oddities and Cryptids?
Oddities refer to objects or items that are unusual in some way, often because of their rarity. Cryptids, on the other hand, refer to creatures whose existence has yet to be confirmed by science. Examples of popular cryptids include Bigfoot, Yeti, sea monsters such as the Loch Ness Monster and Chupacabra.
The allure of these mysterious creatures lies in their unknown nature - they represent a connection with something greater than ourselves. As believers read into stories surrounding these creatures, they become enthralled with both their beauty and mystery. At 16% Nation, we embrace this fascination - so much so that we've made it our mission to create a community where people can freely explore their interests of the unknown without fear of judgment or ridicule.

Utterly obsessed!!! I love this sweater! I wear it every other day! And because of that I’ve washed it a bunch and it’s still in like new condition!! I LOVE this sweatshirt!!! And I get so many compliments when I go out in it! Everyone loves Nessie!!! Thank you 16 Percent Nation!!! Looooove this store!!!!
I bought some Nessie stuff but I definitely needed this Mothman pillow for my podcast studio! It goes with everything I have PERFECTLY!! It’s super good quality material which is good for furniture pillows, especially when you have pets! It looks so good in my studio on my fancy chair!! Thank you 16Percent Nation!! Can’t wait to make my next order!!!
I got this super awesome fossil replica and I’m obsessed!! It’s good quality and looks absolutely amazing up on my shelf with all my other weird and fun items!! Nessie is my favorite cryptid so I had to have this!’ And it did not disappoint!! I’m also buying one for my friend for Christmas. Shh! Haha she’s gonna love it!! Thank you for this amazing little shop!! I’ll be returning again and again!!!
I'm not normally much of a Bigfoot fan (I'm more of a Mothman and Fresno Nightcrawlers girl) but the cute design of this one absolutely stole my heart! The big eyes are too adorable, it's just the right size and shape for cuddling, and the fur is soft without shedding or matting like some other long furs do. I'll definitely be back for more plushies from this shop!
We are OBSESSED with our plushie. The only problem is now we need MORE. Super soft, excellent handmade quality. These “haunted pants” are the perfect adorably creepy addition to any collection. We can’t wait to get our hands on more! So glad to have found these!
I love my Mothman plushy! He’s so cute and fuzzy. The wings are the best part, so soft! The only problem is keeping them away from my pups! (And the catastrophic bad omen of having him nearby) 🤣
This Fresno Nightcrawler Stuffed Cryptid is the perfect companion for camping trips. It is cozy, charming, and adventurous. It looks like it belongs in the woods and blends in with nature. I took a photo of it on a tree and it looked amazing. It is a great gift for anyone who loves camping and cryptids. I adore it and recommend it.
This company is exactly what I needed in my life!! I have been obsessed with cryptids for as long as I can remember but I’ve never owned a cryptid plushie.. until this company!! I now have this beyond adorable Yeti plush and I love him!!! He sits on my stand with some of my other weird and wonderful items and I can’t get over how cute he is! I cannot wait to get more!!!
I always loved cryptids growing up seeing YouTube videos and tv shows talking about them always fascinated me and then years later I stubbled to this site from Instagram and fell further in love with the merch! The plushies really have me in a chokehold I currently own the Fresno nightcrawler and plan on buying them all! Even plan on buy them as presents for family members! So damn adorable!
Love how furry and fluffy the stuffed cryptids are.
these are so well made, you can feel the quality as soon as you open the package. the eyes are beaded on very securely and despite how fluffy they look, they still have minimal shedding which is super convenient. obviously adorable, but also extremely worth the price. don’t hesitate to buy!
