there's tons of custom-made MLP plush toys but 99% of them are going for $120+ and never get a single bid >: as awesome as MLP is i think that's way overpriced for a plushie.

You obviously never made a plush in your life. If you did you would not be saying such things. Yes some plushies are poorly crafted by amateurs and go for ridiculous amount of money when they clearly aren't worthy. But others are made by professionals with a real gift and their art deserves to be highly priced because otherwise it would be an insult to their creation and they are clearly more than worthy. The only reason you think it's priced "high" is because you're used to going to the store and buying a plush for $10-20. Wanna know why the price is so? It's because it's made in China where they pay people two cents a day and not made in the U.S where you have to pay 100+ workers AT LEAST minim wage. If they were made in the U.S you'd never be able to get a plush for below $50. Besides no one is forcing you to bid, so kindly keep your negative to yourself

also, those other plushies are mass-produced, which is part of the reason they go for so little; it's not just where they're made (china in this case).

I'm sorry to add, but the material for a plush isn't the cheapest stuff in the world.

rita dear... you're being very protective, I did not intend to be mean whatsoever with my message and i apologize if it came off that way >: i am aware of the price and time to make a plushie, yes, but the cost of the resources are nowhere near the price these expensive plushies go for. the difference for things like electronics (that are made decently cheaply elsewhere in places like China, like you said) is that the demand to pay high money for those continues to grow whereas it's not the same for plushies.

I acknowledge that you work very hard and there are people who are talented enough and deserve to sell for this much but that doesn't change the fact that the amount of people /willing/ to pay this price is very low. This is how it works for artists and business as well - you can be super talented but the art might never sell if there's barely any people who feel they'd want to give up that sum of money. just because one feels something is worth higher doesn't mean that's what it'll actually sell for.

also, the fact that i never made a plush has nothing to do with it. I am an artist just like you and have sold art in the past; I've indeed tried to auction off art and had to sell it for less than its original worth simply because there was zero demand for it for higher prices. If you're patient and can keep auctioning your plushie off, i'm sure you'll find someone eventually. ^^; this is about understanding business, not whether or not i'm a plushie maker.

buyers usually don't care how much time/hard work was put into something, either - it's about the end result. this is very unfortunate but i've experienced it and that's just how it is.

again, this is just my two cents. I hope you don't remove these comments or anything because i noticed you don't take kindly to different opinions or any form of critique (which an artist needs to grow).

It's fine I apologize for snapping. But did you really not expect me to defend myself?

Also what makes you say I "don't take kindly to different opinions or any form of critique"?

of course i expected you to defend yourself, but instantly assuming i must not be a plushie maker so i don't know a thing is kind of a little much i think ;o; again, i'm sorry!

well, i've seen some of your replies to the critiques you get (like on the little penguin cake) and thought some were a little too harsh when the person's only trying to help you get better. was trying to find it but it looks like you deleted that one >:
