Vintage Naugahyde Nauga Monster Advertising Stuffed Toy


A Nauga Monster plush toy by American synthetic leather manufacturer Naugahyde. Naugas are fictional creatures created to help make naugahyde — a synthetic vinyl-coated fabric developed by Uniroyal Engineered Products — more approachable. The advertising campaign became a cultural phenomena throughout the late 1960s into the 1970s. The "Naugahyde" name comes from the company's founding in Naugatuck, Connecticut. This particular Nauga monster is machine sewn with a black body and orange and green details.
