The Legend of the Michigan Dogman - Fact or Fiction
Believed to be a hybrid of dog and wolf, the mythical man-beast, also known as the Michigan Dogman, has been an enduring legend throughout the state for centuries. While sightings of this mysterious creature have been reported in various parts of Michigan since the 1800s, many are still doubtful of its existence. Are these stories based on truth or pure fiction? The answer remains shrouded in mystery and speculation. As more people have come forward with extraordinary encounters, what was once regarded as impossible has suddenly become plausible - could there actually be a canine shapeshifter roaming our woods? With evidence mountings and questions unanswered, historians and researchers alike work to investigate this enigma that continues to fascinate and perplex Michiganders and tourists alike.
Nessie of Lake Huron - Is She Real or Just A Myth
Could there be a creature as large and mysterious as the Loch Ness monster living in Lake Huron? Some Michiganders believe that could be the case with 'Nessie of Lake Huron.' First reported in 1892, sightings of this cryptid have been reported ever since. Though it seems like an extraordinary claim, there could actually be some truth to it, as numerous eye-witness accounts add credibility to the legend. But what if Nessie is more than just another tall tale? Perhaps researchers and future witnesses will discover the real story behind this fascinating Michigan myth someday soon. Until then we can only speculate about whether she is real or just a myth.
The Phantom Yeti of Mount Denison - Could It Be A Real Animal
Could an unknown, large creature be roaming the hills of Michigan? Reported sightings of the Phantom Yeti of Mount Denison, a shaggy, humanoid-like figure resembling a yeti or Bigfoot in the Upper Peninsula have been cropping up for decades. Though many are skeptical if such a beast truly exists, hard evidence remains elusive. While its origins remain shrouded in mystery, folklorists suggest that it could simply be a manifestation of local superstitions and fears. Alternatively, it is possible that this cryptid is actually based on an undiscovered species of animal - maybe something not-yet-identified by science - that has been living near Lake Superior since prehistoric times. Whether it’s the work of an overactive imagination or something more tangible, one thing is certain - further research is needed to determine whether or not the Phantom Yeti of Mount Denison deserves a spot among official state cryptids!

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.

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!
